Second-year coach Jeff Traylor has UTSA sailing in the right direction. This is the chance the Roadrunners have been waiting for to show their 3-0 record isn't a fluke. UTSA has upgraded its recruiting, getting some good players that the Power 5 teams in Texas didn't have enough scholarships to offer.
Sincere McCormick is one of the best running backs in the country. QB Frank Harris is steady and the Roadrunners' defense ranks 10th in total yards.
The timing sets up for UTSA with Memphis coming off a 31-29 upset home victory against Mississippi State.
Once again the Tigers' defense remains weak ranking 124th in yards allowed per game. Their offense remains potent, but not quite the standard of 2019.
The Roadrunners have covered nine of the last 12 times they've been a road 'dog. They have the runner in McCormick to play ball control and the defense to slow down Memphis enabling them to pull the upset.
