This is the game they always lose. So nice win.

Wow. In so many ways. The offense needs to be better out of the gate. We will not be in knead next week Dorothy and need to come out the gate with that last 4 min offense we had. Why are gill and long not running those outs every play? At least one of them. Zay runs slants/post/fade and I’m sorry, take a seat CJ Lewis. I wish they ran the WR pass his way because he’s a big dude and can toss it but he can’t catch. His catch last week does not prop him up for the drop he had today. Wasn’t the best throw, but come on, I could’ve caught that. Also, where is Ethon Williams? He didn’t touch the field today

I am just so grateful I got my one point for the W in the prediction thread. TXSt is no cupcake team.

Listen, I know we played like complete garbage through the first 3 quarters, but this team found a way to win. If Daz was coaching this game, I say they lose. But they found a way. They didn’t quit. They needed this type of game.

That's probably the fifth time Levy has taken a big hit on a punt return. Someone check this guy for a concussion.

BC has to stop the wildcat formation plays. Not going anywhere

Why are they calling a direct snap to Levy, three times, failing each time!?

And that was Offensive PI. I know we’ve played badly, but this officiating crew has been awful

That was one of the most horrendous PI calls I’ve ever seen

Fourth quarter...defense should be rested...we need them to get a quick three and out. Let’s go Eagles

Please a stop now! Need the DB’s to be as physical as they were last week. Maybe the targeting got in their heads so they’ve been playing off more?

I think we have to remember that all we should want is a win, whether it’s ugly or not.

This is the best the offense has looked all day. Giving the defense a breather too.

I am, how you say, nauseous. BC just looked slow, like they were going at 75%. Overconfident? I don’t know.

I hope as Jurkovec continues to play and develop, we see better pass selection. Throwing to Long in triple coverage just now. Even last weeks interception was in double coverage

Almost a pick six for BC, McBride heaves it up, Mike Palmer with a huge return. BC in the red zone to end the first quarter. Defense looked MUCH Better on that drive

Offense needs a big drive here, defense looks gassed. Lots of arms on hips

I’m certain things will work out (BC moved the ball way too well they first drive to not do it again), but yikes not the ideal start.

Field goal attempt by Boumerhi is blocked, and BC doesn't pick up any points on a promising drive.

After a first down, BC settles down and forces Texas State to punt. Good coverage from Maitre on long pass
