(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.

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.
For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
