Nov. 15, 2008

SAN MARCOS, Texas - In a season in which they have struggled in home games, Texas State football took advantage of a pair of Nicholls State fumbles and a short punt to win their first Southland Conference home game of the season with a 34-10 victory over the Colonels Saturday at Bobcat Stadium.

The Bobcat defense forced another turnover on Nicholls next drive when Houston recovered another fumble at the Nicholls 18-yard line. After George gained five yards on a first-down run, senior running back Stan Zwinggi ran the remaining 13 yards in the next three plays, scoring on a five-yard TD run with 1:50 left to play in the half to give the Bobcats a 17-3 lead.

Zwinggi led the Bobcats in rushing with 73 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries. Canady finished with 54 yards on nine carries and Bush gained 43 yards on nine carries.
