49-21. They score at the end. My hopes:

1. Just win.
2. Come out healthy and Denbow isn't kicked out for TCU game, finally breaking his streak. :-)
3. We go up big early(ish) and give a lot of back ups some playing time and plenty of rest for starters, like Gipson/Wiggins for Shane and Reggie.

I don't think Sonny will run it up, but the Ponies will definitely want to put up a big number to get national attention.

Our defense has issues, but not against Texas State.

Ponies 66
Bobcats 13

T.J. McDaniel ran all over these guys last year. I want to see more of the same with 2-3 of our RBs having big opening days.

I'm going with unusual numbers for both teams, 50-19 Ponies.

They are going to better offensively with a legit QB and some decent receivers. Lots of transfers, and we saw what that did for us last year.

A good team wins this game by 21 under normal circumstances. However, travelling with the virus, having a smaller team... this isn't normal. I'll be happy with just a win.

I'm most interested in:
- offensive efficiency
- Defensive line stopping the run
- Playmaking from the Fox
- Safety play

I'll be happy with a win, but ecstatic if we score over 50 and limit them to under 24.

Given what our guys went through with the long bus ride and the unusual nature of this season, I'm happy to come out with a one TD win. Three TDs called back and a fumble going into the end zone. Our guys were fortunate to win this road game. Good to have 2 weeks to prepare for what looks like what could be another tough road game at UNT

Well at least I got Texas State's score right. I simply didn't expect our offense to be so inept. I will temper my expectations for the season to 6-5.
