(April 9, 2010)--UTSA and Arizona State have agreed to a home-and-home football series in 2016 and 2018, UTSA Athletics Director Lynn Hickey announced Friday. The games will be played Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016, at the Alamodome and on Saturday, Sept. 1, 2018, at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Ariz.

"Much like the Baylor series, we are adding another quality opponent in Arizona State to our future schedules," head coach Larry Coker said. "Coach Erickson has put together a great program and the Sun Devils will present a tremendous challenge for our players. At the same time, we are very pleased to bring a team of that caliber to the Alamodome for a home game."

The two schools feature former head coaches who won national championships at Miami. Coker won the 2001 national title with the Hurricanes, while Dennis Erickson guided Miami to national championships in 1989 and 1991.

This marks the second contract to be signed with an NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) opponent, as UTSA unveiled a three-game series with Baylor last month that will be played Sept. 9, 2017, at Floyd Casey Stadium in Waco, on Sept. 8, 2018, in San Antonio and Sept. 7, 2019, back in Waco.

The Roadrunners recently announced their 2011 schedule, which includes home games against Northeastern State (Sept. 3), McMurry (Sept. 10), Bacone College (Sept. 24), South Alabama (Oct. 8), Georgia State (Oct. 29) and Minot State (Nov. 19). UTSA has road dates at Southern Utah (Sept. 17), Sam Houston State (Oct. 1), UC Davis (Oct. 15), Northwestern State (Oct. 22) and McNeese State (Nov. 12).

Sam Houston State (Sept. 8), Southern Utah (Sept. 15), UC Davis (Oct. 27) and McNeese State (Nov. 10) all will return games at UTSA in 2012. UTSA will return games to South Alabama (Sept. 1) and Georgia State (Sept. 29) that same season.

All schedules are subject to change.

The University of Texas System Board of Regents unanimously approved UTSA's Athletics Initiative Business Plan on Dec. 18, 2008, which granted the university permission to add a football program. On March 6, 2009, Coker was introduced as the program's first head coach.

UTSA will play two years (2011-2012) as an NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Independent. It then will notify the NCAA in June 2013 of its intent to advance to the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) in 2015. The Roadrunners will comply with FBS standards during the 2013 and 2014 seasons, then will seek full FBS membership and bowl eligibility in 2015.

UTSA signed its first recruiting class in February and will redshirt all incoming players during the 2010-2011 academic year. The first practices will be held this fall and the first game will be against Northeastern (Okla.) State on Sept. 3, 2011, at the Alamodome.

UTSA is offering fans an opportunity to place a $50 deposit on season tickets online at the UTSA Athletics Web site or by calling the ticket office at 210-458-UTSA (8872). Season ticket packages will go on sale in July 2010. Deposits are non-refundable and will be applied to the cost of season tickets in 2011.
