Saturday can't come soon enough for most fans.

Watching Texas State (2-9, 0-7 in the sun Belt) go through the first season of its rebuild under head coach Everett withers hasn’t been easy to endure. Take last week’s Bobcat Stadium attendance against Troy of just 8,010 people for example. Now to be fair, part of that was due to Thanksgiving Break, but another reason is how the season has drudged along for the once-starry-eyed Bobcats who knocked off 8-4 Ohio to open the season.
