The Roadrunners now have won all three meetings with the Bobcats.
On the first series of the game, Texas State's Willie Jones III was sacked for an 11-yard loss by Josiah Tauaefa and fumbled. Dantzler scooped up the loose ball and raced to the end zone for a 7-0 lead. Midway through the quarter Tykee Ogle-Kellogg caught a 7-yard pass from Cordale Grundy to make it 14-0.
Tyler Vitt scored from a yard out to halve the Texas State deficit, but Sackett hit from 40-yards out to send the Roadrunners (1-3) into halftime with a 17-7 advantage.
Vitt found Keenen Brown with a 21-yard touchdown to get the Bobcats (1-3) to 17-14, but Sacket added field goals of 40- and 44-yards in the fourth quarter and, after Vitt hit Hutch White with a 13-yard touchdown to get within a field goal at 23-21, the Bobcats gave up a safety with 1:49 left.
Vitt finished 15 of 22 for 192 yards and two touchdowns through the air, but was picked off twice.
