From SportsPaper Wiki

The Texas State Bobcats are the sports teams that represent Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas.They compete in the Sun Belt Conference in NCAA Division I (Football Bowl Subdivision for football). The Bobcat has been the mascot of Texas State University since 1921, when the university adopted the name from the recommendation of a committee formed to raise school spirit. The football squad used the bobcat for the first time in 1921 and went undefeated with a 7-0 season. Texas State had several officially recognized live bobcat mascots until the 1970s. In 1964, the Texas State Bobcat was given the official name of "Boko." Texas State had no official fight song until 1961, when Paul Yoder was commissioned to compose "Go Bobcats."
