(May 19, 2010)--UTSA announced it has agreed to play Houston in a home-and-home series during the 2013-2014 seasons. The intra-state programs will meet Sept. 21, 2013, at the Alamodome and again Aug. 30, 2014, at Robertson Stadium in the Bayou City.
"We are continuing to do a great job of scheduling quality opponents that will create excitement for our program," head coach Larry Coker said. "To be able to bring a team like Houston into the Alamodome in our third year is going to be very rewarding for our players and fans."
This marks the fifth contract to be signed with an NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) opponent.

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 begin play as an NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Independent in 2011. It then will notify the NCAA in June 2012 of its intent to advance to the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) by 2014. The Roadrunners will comply with FBS standards during the 2013 season, then will seek full FBS membership and bowl eligibility in 2014.
UTSA signed its first recruiting class in February and will redshirt all incoming players during the 2010-2011 school year. The first practices will be this fall and the first game will be against Northeastern (Okla.) State on Sept. 3, 2011, at the Alamodome.
