Texas State vs Houston Christian Game Preview
Why Houston Christian Will Win
The artist formerly known as Houston Baptist can still wing it around.
Houston Christian might not have the attack of the past, but Justin Fomby has thrown for 635 yards and six touchdowns in the first two games for the ninth-best passing attack in the FCS.

Why Texas State Will Win
What happened against the Lions of Lindenwood?
Fomby threw for 330 yards and two touchdowns and everything seemed to be going fine in the first half, but the Huskies lost 21-20.
The offense stalled in the second half as the Lions held the ball for over 35 minutes.
Texas State used to be fly at 100 miles per hour with a great pace to its style, but now it’s controlling the clock a bit more, it hasn’t been bad defensively on third downs, and it’s been able to find a few things that work with the passing game.
What’s Going To Happen

Turnovers were a problem in the loss to Nevada – that, and the one net rushing yard didn’t help – but the defense is starting to force takeaways and the line should bring just enough pressure to matter.
