UTSA Roadrunners 2014 Football Preview & Schedule

This will be just the 4th year of FBS football for the Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners and they come in off an 8-4 season in 2012 and a 7-5 season last year. This year HC Larry Coker will have his best team year as they return 55 lettermen, including 20 starters, which makes them the most experienced team in the nation. Preview & schedule below.

The lone player missing from this offense is QB Eric Soza, but he was really just an average QB. He did complete 62.2% of his passes but also threw just 12 TDs passes to 11 INTs. Tucker Carte is a senior and will look to lead this offense to better heights this year, after putting up a solid 25.6 ppg last year. Has the luxury of having the top 9 pass catcher back from last year, all of whom caught at least 14 passes. The running game should be decent with David Glasco returning, after running for 496 yards and 5 TDs last year and he will be running behind a very good offense line that has a whopping 143 career starts returning (2nd in nation). The defense will also return 10 starters and 14 of their top 16 tacklers from last year. The DL has all 4 starters back with all 4 being seniors and is clearly the strength of this side of the ball. The LB corps has 2 of 3 starters back but overall this is an average group. The defensive backfield is led by Triston Wade, who led the team in tackles and had 5 PBUs and 2 INTs last year. A very solid secondary. The Special teams also returns all 5 of its key parts and is one of the better units in Conference USA.   

The Roadrunners are the most experienced team in the nation and should have a solid year in 2014. The Schedule is decent and they should sweep through the home portion of the conference slate, while Road trips to La Tech, Rice and WKU will be challenging. The offense should top the 26.8 ppg they put up last year, while a defense that has 9 senior starters and 2 junior starters on it should be vastly improved over last year’s group that allowed 26.3 ppg. This is the first year that UTSA will be eligible for a bowl game and I see them getting to one, while challenging for a spot in the Conference USA title game vs Marshall.
