It does seem to have a blight. From my research it appears that blights and crop destruction is quite common in Texas.

Treatment will be simple. Apply WETTABLE SULFUR and DOLOMITIC LIME according to the package instructions. This will kill off the infection, as well as recondition the soil back to how it should be.

You will also want to treat the top with a fungicide. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/using-fungicides-in-garden.htm
