  • A lot of people don’t realize that there are 40,000 students that attend this university. Impressive, large stadium. On the outskirts of a very large campus near the water. Really nice to drive...  more »
  • Enjoyed a breezy weeknight college football game with a lot of great fans for both teams. Even got my picture taken with the mascot.  more »
  • Shuttle to games works very good. Fun place to go and watch FB but the beer is 6$
  • My son Gage Mallory and I were invited to Bobcat Stadium for a senior visit for the purpose of his becoming a member of their football program. The staff and coaches were very knowledgeable and kind. They were very organized and were able to answer many questions that were geared towards the courses, housing, transportation and their football program thoroughly. There was transportation provided that was handicapped accessible and cool for an unsually warm winter day. The well planned guided tour included the campus, the locker room, the football based areas within the campus, and their beautiful Bobcat Stadium. The event was catered by Jason's Deli which provided a delicious and health conscious meal that was complimented by the famed Bobcat Stadium high rise. Bobcat Stadium is well designed, modern, and luxurious. The rich blend of wood and natural light created a laid back atmosphere of decadence and comfort. The view of the field from their exclusive high raise was unsurpassed. The overall experience was excellent. My son Gage Mallory is still very interested in their football program. We are grateful, and very appreciative for his invitation to the Texas State University!!!
