(Sept. 8, 2013) -- UTSA football continues out of town Sept. 14 at the University of Arizona and Sept. 21 at the University of Texas at El Paso, followed by the second home game Sept. 28 versus University of Houston. UTSA lost Saturday, Sept. 7 after a tough fight against Oklahoma State University with a 56-35 final score.
The Roadrunners put up an enthusiastic fight and took Oklahoma State by surprise a number of times during the game, with touchdowns that brought the 40,977 fans to their feet at the Alamodome.
The buzz after the game was that even though the Roadrunners didn't win this time, lots of experts and fans were impressed by UTSA's performance and efforts, and the previous week's win at New Mexico, and feel confident there are many more wins to come. (Go, Roadrunners!)
Pre-game, there was the exciting Spirit Walk as Coach Larry Coker, UTSA President Ricardo Romo and the coaching staff led the team members past Sunset Station to the Alamodome as fans cheered.
Along the Spirit Walk route was the new Rowdy statue. Numerous UTSA supporters and even Oklahoma State fans made donations to bring the new 1,000-pound Rowdy statue to campus. The Bring Rowdy Home fundraising campaign is more than halfway to the $25,000 goal to bring Iron Rowdy permanently to UTSA. Roadrunners posed for photos next to the statue with the designer, Lubbock artist and blacksmith R.G. Box.
The UTSA community, alumni and other supporters can get ready for more exciting home games at the Alamodome. See the schedule below.
