(June 26, 2014) -- UTSA interim head soccer coach Greg Sheen announced Wednesday his program's 2014 schedule, which features eight home fixtures and a 10-match Conference USA slate.

"We're very excited to take on the challenges that this schedule will present," Sheen said. "I believe that our non-conference opponents will help us grow as a team and prepare us for Conference USA play. We'll see a lot of our C-USA opponents for the first time, but I'm confident that this team will put in the work and be successful both on and off the field this fall."

Following an exhibition match against Incarnate Word on Aug. 17, the Roadrunners will open their ninth season of play Aug. 22, when they host Houston Baptist at Park West Athletics Complex.

UTSA then will begin a stretch in which it will play seven of the next nine tilts on the road. The swing starts with matches at Sam Houston State (Aug. 24) and Kansas (Aug. 29), before returning home to face another former Southland Conference foe, McNeese State (Sept. 5). After a clash with the Cowgirls, the Birds will hit the road again for contests at SMU (Sept. 7), Texas A&M-Corpus Christi (Sept. 12) and I-35 rival Texas State (Sept. 14).

The Roadrunners then will host Baylor (Sept. 19) for the second time in the last three seasons before opening their second season of C-USA play on the road against UAB (Sept. 26) and Middle Tennessee (Sept. 28).

The month of October will begin with a pair of home matches against Rice (Oct. 3) and North Texas (Oct. 5). UTSA then will hit the road for three consecutive tilts at Marshall (Oct. 10), league-newcomer Western Kentucky (Oct. 12) and UTEP (Oct. 19) before closing the regular season with home contests versus FIU (Oct. 24), Florida Atlantic (Oct. 26) and Southern Miss (Oct. 30).

In all, the Roadrunners will meet five of its 10 league foes for the first time in program history (FIU, Marshall, Middle Tennessee, UAB and Western Kentucky).

The C-USA Tournament is scheduled to be played Nov. 5-9 at Transamerica Field in Charlotte, N.C.

A revolution in cloud computing is underway, and Ravi Sandhu believes it will be much bigger than the PC and Internet revolutions that have already changed the way we live. Sandhu, director of the UTSA Institute for Cyber Security, says UTSA is taking a leadership role in tackling three fundamental cloud technology problems: how to build and operate the cloud, how to use it profitably for diverse applications and how to keep it secure.

Sandhu, the Lutcher Brown Distinguished Chair in Cyber Security in the College of Sciences, and Ram Krishnan, assistant professor of electrical engineering in the UTSA College of Engineering, are funded by a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to improve cloud security.
