The Roadrunners jumped back on track with a win over Southern Mississippi 12-10, in front of a little over 20,200 fan, (the smallest crowd in UTSA's short history). It was a low scoring game that saw UTSA take the lead early but then lose it in the fourth quarter. Not many people watching believed that this game would have the outcome that it did. But those on field who wore the blue,orange and white did...and that was all that mattered.

It Wasn't Pretty

Once again UTSA looked out of sync on Offense for the majority of the game. There were a few plays that gave fans a glimmer of what they expected from this team from the start of the season. One of the big plays of the game came from RB David Glasco who bursted off the right side of the formation for a 70 yard run in the first half that set up a field goal giving the Roadrunners a 6-0 lead at the break.

In the second half the Roadrunners' “Hard Hat D” stuffed the Golden Eagles offense in the 3rd quarter shutting them out while the UTSA Offense managed only 3 points. With a shaky 9-0 lead  for the Runners, going into the 4th quarter, it didn't take long for Southern Miss to get on the board with a 36 yard field.

With not much movement from the Roadrunner Offense, the Golden Eagles worked on field position until they struck paydirt with a touchdown half way through the quarter, taking the lead for the first time in the game 10-7, with over seven minutes left in the game.

After trading possessions, the Roadrunners got the ball for the last time on their own 19 yard line with 2:17 left on the clock. The Roadrunner faithful was then treated to what might be the best series of plays of QB Austin Robinson's short college career.

Taking command of the situation, Robinson connected on 6 of 9 passes with one of them going for 19 yards to WR Marcellus Mack that took the Runners down to the 30 yard line. On the very next play, Robinson went back to Mack and  interference was called on Southern Miss giving K Sean Ianno the opportunity to add to his resume by kicking the last second 38 yard game winner.

Ball Game Heroes

Defense
The entire defense once again played another solid game. The run defense was exceptional allowing only 57 yards rushing. The secondary played aggressively but still gave up only 257 yards passing. The top tacklers in the game were LB Jens Jeters who led with 12 tackles followed by S Brian King (9) and Freshman LB Marcos Curry (7).  Once again Triston Wade had an interception while coming in fourth in tackles (7) for another solid defensive game from the senior safety.


Offense
Can't say enough about Austin Robinson. As a Red-Shirt Freshman with a couple of outings this year that did not go well for him, he sure did make us proud as he marched the Roadrunners down into field goal range to help get the “W”. As much criticism as he has taken over the past weeks and the pointing out of his need to read defenses, this drive could be the “catalyst of confidence” needed to help Robinson reach another level in his college football maturity.

Driving the ball down 60 yards against any team in the final minutes for the win, is not an easy task for quarterback at any level yet Robinson showed confidence, poise and control of the situation. What he lacks is up to this position coach to perfect. What he has is innate God given abilities with a 6' 3''  220 pound frame...And only a Freshman.
