Went out to the Alamodome today to watch UTSA’s FIRST college football game ever. I got San Antonio fever and wanted to see the shiny new object. Personally, I thought they would get trampled. The team they were playing, Northeastern, had already won a game this season pretty convincingly. That is, if 43-0 is convincing.
In the meantime, the Road Runners had given no idea of what to expect. Everything I had heard indicated the Road Runners were vastly overmatched; they were supposedly a D-II or D-III team in talent.
UTSA went out and dominated Northeastern State. They scored three touchdowns in their first three possessions and won 31-3. They ran their offense to perfection, scoring quickly and moving the ball efficiently on all three drives. Northeastern State looked flat, got rattled, and just couldn’t overcome their mistakes to even mount a serious comeback attempt.
UTSA is going to play in the WAC next season. That might be a good move for them. They have some speed on both sides of the ball. If they are truly THAT good, they might be a lot better than I, or seemingly anyone else, has given them credit.
