(July 25, 2014) -- Conference USA has announced that two more UTSA home football games during the upcoming 2014 season will be televised by Sinclair Broadcast Group.

The Oct. 4 contest against New Mexico will kick off at 2:30 p.m., while the Oct. 25 tilt with UT El Paso will start at 6 p.m. on the newly created American Sports Network (ASN). The channel for each of the two games will be announced at a later date.

Eleven of the Roadrunners' 12 contests this fall now will be televised with the lone exception being the Sept. 27 league opener at Florida Atlantic.

Sinclair, among the nation's largest television broadcasting companies, is slated to produce and distribute 100 events each of the next two years as part of its agreement with C-USA. That encompasses an extensive slate of live, local sporting events including 30 C-USA football broadcasts, basketball, soccer and other sports within the league.

These exclusive games will be broadcast across various regions of the country and additional content also will be televised, such as the "C-USA Showcase" -- the league's 30-minute weekly program that offers a number of highlights and feature stories about the conference.

ASN is a collegiate sports initiative that will air on a number of Sinclair's broadcast stations, and it will be led by Sinclair Network Chief Operating Officer Doron Gorshein.

Sinclair owns and operates, programs and provides sales services to 162 television stations in 78 markets, reaching approximately 40 percent of U.S. television households. Its footprint includes ABC, CBS, CW, FOX, MyTV and NBC, as well as Azteca and Univision affiliates.

Football standouts make Roadrunner history

For Ashaad Mabry and Triston Wade, football is not just a passing fancy. Both players were part of the UTSA football program almost from the beginning. When UTSA opens the 2015 season Thursday at Arizona, it will be the first time the Roadrunners take the field without them. But Mabry and Wade will still be playing football; their uniforms will just be a different color.

Mabry, a defensive tackle from San Antonio's MacArthur High School, was an honorable mention All-Conference USA selection his final two seasons as a Roadrunner and second among the team's defensive linemen with 49 tackles last year. Wade, a defensive back from Tyler, was the most decorated player in school history. He was a semifinalist for the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award – for the nation's top defensive back – a three-time all-conference honoree and two-year team captain who set a school record of 293 tackles in his career. Both men had outstanding college careers that allowed them to make UTSA history.

Did you know? Mabry and Wade both agreed to terms as undrafted free agents with the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, respectively, becoming the first UTSA players to move to the professional ranks.
