The Roadrunners pounded out a solid win over the North Texas “Mean Green”, 27 -19 in what was the final game for the “Original 18” along with the other seniors on the team. The Roadrunners dominated the game with the occasional fumble (4 lost 2) to keep things closer than it should have been but overall the Roadrunners looked like the team that most had expected this season.

Mean Roadrunners
The Roadrunner defense bent but did not break as they held the UNT offense to 4 field goals in the first half, two of which were deep in the red zone. These stops were crucial as the Roadrunners took the early lead and held on for the win as the Mean Green made a late push in the fourth quarter. The "Hard Hat D" was led by Dawg Safety Michael Egwuagu who had 8 tackles in the game.  LB Jens Jeters had 7 stops followed by DT Ashaad Mabry and Duke Wheeler with 6 tackles each.

On offense there was highlight catches by TE's David Morgan and Cole Hubble and highlight runs by RB's David Glasco and Brandon Armstrong. But the biggest success story by far was the play at the QB position. QB Tucker Carter was superb in his final game, coming off injuries that he suffered throughout the season to his shoulder and head. Carter had 277 yards on 18 of 29 passing with no interceptions and 2 touchdowns. I know... shoulda, coulda, woulda, but that is how football goes most of the time.

Game Stats

 

Time Flies
From the first entrance at the very first game in front of 56,000 cheering fans, to the final seconds in a win against North Texas, this has been a great ride not only for the Roadrunners and their seniors, but for the true fan as well. 

For the Seniors it was bitter sweet in many ways as they won their final game of the season but ended what was probably one of most rewarding college footbal careers that any one of these seniors could have hoped for. Aside from wins and losses of this season, you have to imagine that this group of guys will live out there lives the same way they ended up here at UTSA. A closely knit group. A “band of brothers”.

We Salute The 18
We at Roadrunnernation.com salute them for what they did for UTSA. Five years of dedication that gave birth to a dream. An idea that became a program. The program that other future players will help grow into a Division I Football power. Yes, now that's the dream.

A dream so big most of these guys could never have imagined when they signed up to play for a team that had nothing to offer but a dream.

 

Go Roadrunners!
