(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.

UTSA writes the book on all-digital libraries

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.

At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.

Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.

With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.

Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
