Trivia:
TMU is actually portrayed to be Texas State University is San Marcos, TX. Texas State is actually 30 miles south of Austin. This leads to some other changes made. The stadium is Bobcat Stadium on the Texas State campus. The stadium is made to look much bigger than it is - the endzone complex is only 2 levels, not 3; there are no seats in the corners of the stadium; the grandstands have only 2 levels, not the additional 3rd deck. All of these were added by computers by simply copying an existing level in. The Austin skyline is in the background - Austin is 30 miles away and actually in the other direction.See more »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: When Coach Taylor is at the Stadium for Texas Methodist University, you can clearly see Texas State painted in the End ZoneSee more »
Quotes:
Brian 'Smash' Williams:Now about Tim Riggins: there are two things you can say that will put a smile on his face. One: We're going to state! And two: The results are in; you are NOT the father!See more »
