Texas State and UTSA students trash talk on Twitter ahead of I-35 Showdown
SAN MARCOS – Students from the University of Texas at San Antonio and Texas State University are already dishing shade ahead of the H-E-B sponsored I-35 Showdown on Saturday.
Students have feuded on social media and others have paid homage to their respective team displaying banners with competitive sayings outside of their apartments.
The Bobcats will host the Roadrunners on Saturday at Bobcat Stadium and students have been hyping up the rivalry that "isn't really a rivalry" according to both sides.
See what students are saying on social media ahead of the I-35 Showdown.

On the UTSA side of the argument:
UTSA's allotment of tickets were sold out long ago, yet Texas State still can't fill a measly 30k stadium? pic.twitter.com/UKiGfASZV6— Meep Meep Nation (@MeepMeepNation) September 22, 2017
On the Texas State side of the argument:
UTSA is the type of school that people apply to when they don’t get accepted to their first 4 schools #TXSTvsUTSA— Sugar Honey Ice Tea (@p_a_l_m_e_r_) September 21, 2017
