The Bobcats dropped their record down to 11-15 with that defeat, which was their third straight on the road. That poor showing could be blamed on the team's lackluster offensive performance across that stretch, as they only averaged 55.3 points per game.

Texas State will be fighting an uphill battle on Saturday as the experts have pegged them as the 2.5-point underdog. Bettors picking them against the spread have some confidence (to put it mildly), as the team is sitting on a three-game streak of failing to cover when playing as the underdogs on the road.

The rematch might be a little tougher for Texas State since the team won't have the home-court advantage this time around. We'll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
