Last year the Houston Cougars opened up at home with a "flat out" beat down of Southern University 62-13 while the UTSA Roadrunners were on the road shocking the New Mexico Lobos 21-13. Weeks later the final score between UTSA and Houston of 59-28 seemed to be a one-sided game but it really was much closer than the score indicated. No really...

This summer the Houston squad was busy replacing 2 Cornerbacks and 2 defensive lineman.  UTSA continued  preparing 37 seniors for their final season. With 9 returning starters on Offense and 10 returning starters on defense the Roadrunners will be more than ready to see the Cougars again on Friday and show the country that last year's game versus the Cougars was an aberration.

"Beating Houston might seem to be a tall order to some"...

We feel that in order to win this game the Roadrunners will need to match the intensity that the Cougars will bring on opening night in front of a raucous crowd that will be showcasing their newly built stadium on national TV.

To beat the Roadrunners, Houston will have to match last years takeaways in that game. The Roadrunners gave them 5 turnovers! A high probability that this will not happen again

We are expecting a drop off in big plays on the defensive side for Houston as they were ranked number 1 in the country in takeaways  with 18 fumble recoveries and 25 interceptions. But with two new cornerbacks learning the ropes in the first game of the season... This spells nothing but trouble for the Houston Coogs versus a Senior led UTSA team with all their receivers from last year coming back.

Projected UTSA line up for this Friday's game:

OFFENSE

QB Tucker Carter- Sr. 6' 3'' 220
RB David Glasco III- Sr. 5' 10'' 205
