The UTSA Roadrunners(1-2) travel to Boca Raton to face the Florida Atlantic Owls (1-3) for their first Conference USA match-up this year. After playing one of the toughest non-conference schedules in the country, the Roadrunners are done licking their wounds as they get ready to make their run at the Conference USA championship. The Owls from FAU will try and rebound from an emotional last second loss in Wyoming last week.


Emotional Let Down

Last week the FAU Owls kicked 4 field goals and scored a touchdown only to lose the game against the Wyoming Cowboys on a last second field goal.

The crushing defeat came after the Owls, who were up by 2 points with time running out in the fourth quarter, stopped the Cowboys on 4 downs at their own 8 yard line as Wyoming went for it on fourth down. 

The Owls got the ball on the 11 yard line and just needed to run out the clock, kick a field goal or score the touchdown to secure the win. On the very first play, QB Jaquez Johnson fumbled the ball and Wyoming was back in business with 2:05 on the clock.

The Cowboys then ripped off an 88 yard run from their own 9 to get within a chip shot for the Wyoming kicker who nailed it with 15 second left on the clock.

The Owls ended up with four fumbles losing 3 of them while rushing for 188 yards and passing for 108.


Returning Starters for the Owls:

The Owls bring back 5 Offensive and 6 Defensive players from a 2013 team that had a 6-6 season, which was their best season since 2008 in which they won 7 games.

On Offense
QB Jaquez Johnson  6' 1'' 225, Jr.
WR William Dukes  6' 4'' 190, Sr.
LT  Dillon DeBoer  6' 5'' 245, So.
LG Isaac Edwards  6' 3'' 280, So.
C   Braden Lyons  6' 5'' 295, Sr.

On Defense:
LT Trevon Coley    6' 2'' 225, Jr.
RT Brandin Bryant 6' 2'' 260, Jr.
LB Andrae Kirk      6'2'' 225, Sr.
CB D'Joun Smith   5' 11'' 175, Sr.
SS  Damian Parms 6' 2'' 195, Sr.
FS Christian Milstead 5' 10 170, Sr.


The Scoop

UTSA will be coming off a much needed bye and should ready for this game mentally and physically. Players expected back from injury are QB Tucker Carter, S Nic Johnston and DT Richard Burge. Also expected back is WR Kenny Bias who is coming of a suspension along with S Michael Egwaugu who had left the team briefly and is now back in with the team.

Not too impressed  with FAU as they have many holes to fill this year and don't seem to have the linemen on both sides to  win this one. UTSA's QB will have to produce in the first half to show that he is 100 %. Don't see Coach Coker allowing Carter to be non productive after watching Freshman QB Blake Bogenschutz bring a spark to the offense against OSU. This will be Carter's defining game and the pressure will be on him to produce

The Verdict
UTSA should dominate here. Always a chance that the Roadrunners don't match the intensity of a lesser team but I don't believe this will be the case here.
