UTSA Roadrunners schedule & tickets

UTSA Roadrunners represents the University of Texas at San Antonio. The team is coached by former Miami Hurricanes head coach, Larry Coker. UTSA is a member of Conference USA in all sports as of July 1st, 2013. UTSA began practicing in August 2010, and began competing as an NCAA Division I FCS independent on September 3, 2011. Prior to joining C-USA, on November 11, 2010, UTSA had accepted an invitation for membership within the Western Athletic Conference in the football bowl subdivision. UTSA previously became an official member of the WAC on July 1, 2012, and began their transition to the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), prior to moving to C-USA. The team plays its home games at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, which also serves as home to the Alamo Bowl. In April 2012, it was announced that UTSA would join Conference USA on July 1st 2013, following its approval from the University of Texas System Board of Regents to allow the school to accept an invitation, negotiate and finalize terms with the league. UTSA is FBS transitional in 2012 and 2013, and will become a bowl eligible full FBS member in 2014.

UTSA played its first game against Northeastern State on September 3, 2011 at the Alamodome. With attendance of 56,743, UTSA set a record for the highest-attended game for an NCAA Division I FCS start-up program. UTSA finished their first season with a record of 4–6, and set a record for the largest average home attendance for a new football program with 35,521. This topped the previous record from South Florida of 33,038 in 1997.

UTSA followed up its initial campaign with an 8–4 second season as an FBS transitional member, including going 3–3 in the WAC. UTSA closed out its season with a 38–31 win over rival Texas State before an announced crowd of 39,032 at the Alamodome. For the 2012 season, UTSA averaged 29,226 in attendance. Due to being a transitional FBS member, UTSA was not eligible for a bowl.
