The 2013 UTSA Roadrunners football schedule is split with 6 home games and 6 road games. Their home slate is very tough with visits for Oklahoma State Houston, Rice and Louisiana Tech dotting it. Their full schedule is listed below, but first let's preview the 2013 UTSA Roadrunners.
Larry Coker, who won a national championship at Miami, took UTSA to an 8-4 mark in just their 2nd season of existence and first year in the FBS. Last year the Roadrunners went 3-3 in the sun Belt, to fins 4th in the league and this year they take a step up in competition with their move to Conference USA, All four of their losses were to teams that were bowl-eligible. Coker now leads UTSA into the new-look Conference USA. The Roadrunners will not be a full FBS member and bowl eligible until 2014, but they will look to build on last years success with 18 starters and 51 lettermen back this year.
Senior QB Eric Soza (2085 yards, 20 TD's 3 INT's) returns to lead an offense that put up 31.2 ppg last year. Soza also rushed for six scores and averaged 5.4 yards per carry. He will have plenty of weapons in the WR corps as their top 8 pass catchers from last year return, with 7 of those players having caught 10 or more passes. UTSA also returns it's top two RB's from last year, in David Glasco (537 yards) and Evans Okatcha (450 yards). Okotcha also had 24 catches as well. The OL has 4 starters back from a group that allowed just 7 sacks all year.
UTSA brings back eight defensive starters. Gone is leading tackler Brandon Reeves, but they do bring back 16 of their top 19 tacklers overall. Where UTSA has some question marks is at linebacker, where only SR Steven Kurfehs returns after recording 71 tackles and 4.5 sacks last year. The secondary could be a strength, with 3 starters back and all 4 players are upperclassmen, while the DL is solid with 3 JR's starting. Last UTAS allowed 29 ppg, yet only played three offenses that finished in the top thirty in scoring and they allowed least 48 points to all three teams. The only FBS teams they held under 30 points was Idaho (123) and New Mexico State (114). In the high powered Conference USA this defense could take a step back this year.
In a short amount of time the program has come a long way and is ready to join Conference USA this year. Last year the Roadrunners did go 8-4, but it should also be known that just 2 of their wins came vs FBS foes. It likely will be much tougher for them to post a winning record when they face 12 FBS teams this year, including four of the top 15 scoring offenses from last season (Louisiana Tech, Oklahoma State, Marshall and Arizona). 3 wins at the most for UTSA this year.
