Traylor successful in league play
UTSA head coach Jeff Traylor has experienced immediate success in league games during his time in San Antonio. The 2021 Conference USA Coach of the Year has guided the Roadrunners to 14 wins in 17 conference games during his tenure. The Roadrunners held off Western Kentucky 31-28 on Oct. 8 for their second straight 2-0 league start. Last season, Traylor led UTSA to a 7-1 league mark and the program's first-ever league crown with a 49-41 victory over Western Kentucky in the C-USA Championship Game. The Roadrunners registered a 5-2 record in C-USA play in Traylor's first season at the helm in 2020.
Friday night lights
While college football traditionally is played on Saturdays, UTSA is no stranger to having a game moved to a weeknight for television. This week's contest versus FIU will mark the second Friday night CBS Sports Network broadcast in the last three weeks for the Roadrunners, who beat Middle Tennessee 45-30 on Sept. 30 in Murfreesboro to improve to 4-1 all-time on Fridays. In 2014, the Roadrunners opened the year with a 27-7 victory over Houston in a Friday night broadcast on ESPNU. UTSA also played a pair of Thursday night contests that fall, including a 26-23 setback to Arizona and a 12-10 win against Southern Miss in a CBS Sports Network telecast. UTSA played its 2015 season lid-lifter on a Thursday at Arizona, and then hosted Arizona State in a Friday night showdown on ESPN2 at the Alamodome in 2016. The Roadrunners beat Middle Tennessee 37-35 in a CBSSN Friday night broadcast on Sept. 25, 2020. UTSA outlasted Western Kentucky 49-41 in a Friday night CBSSN telecast last Dec. 3 to capture the program's first-ever Conference USA title. The Roadrunners played their first Tuesday game in a 38-24 setback to No. 24 San Diego State in the Frisco Bowl on Dec. 21, 2021. In 2012, UTSA was scheduled to open the year on a Thursday versus South Alabama, but that game was postponed to Saturday, Sept. 1, due to Hurricane Isaac. UTSA is 5-4 in games played on weekdays.

Last Meeting
Dalton Sturm had 187 yards of offense and La'Kel Bass and Marcus Davenport combined for 15 tackles, but it was not enough in a 14-7 setback to FIU on Nov. 4, 2017, in Miami. Sturm rushed for a game-high 82 yards and added 105 through the air, completing 13 passes to seven different receivers, including three apiece to Josh Stewart and Kerry Thomas Jr. Meanwhile, Bass led a defense that held the Panthers to 315 yards of offense with eight tackles, including five solos and a tackle for loss. Davenport added seven stops and his third forced fumble of the season, which led to one of three FIU turnovers on the night.
Last time out
UTSA piled up 486 yards of offense, including a season-high 213 on the ground, and held Western Kentucky to 15 points below their scoring average in a 31-28 victory in Conference USA action on Saturday evening at the Alamodome. The Roadrunners ran their record to 4-2 overall and 2-0 in the league with their third straight win. It also marked UTSA's third consecutive victory against the Hilltoppers, all in the last year and all in one-possession outcomes. Frank Harris completed 24 of 35 passes for 273 yards and a touchdown and also rushed for 61 yards and a score. Brenden Brady paced the ground attack with 82 yards and a TD on 19 carries to go along with four receptions for 51 yards, while Trelon Smith added 65 yards on 12 totes to help the Roadrunners eclipse their previous season best rushing yardage total of 167 posted in the win at Middle Tennessee. Defensively, Rashad Wisdom led UTSA with a season-high 10 tackles, including eight solo stops to become the program's all-time leader, and one pass breakup. Donyai Taylor registered a career-high eight tackles with six unassisted. Corey Mayfield Jr. broke up a pair of passes and logged six solo stops, while Nick Booker-Brown and Clifford Chattman posted two PBUs apiece for a unit that registered three fourth-down stops in the second half.
Down to the wire
UTSA is no stranger to close contests in the Jeff Traylor era, as 21 of the 32 have been one-score ballgames in the fourth quarter. The Roadrunners own a 15-6 record in those games including a 3-1 mark this year following the 31-28 decision against Western Kentucky last Saturday. Dating back to last season, UTSA has seen eight of the last 11 contests decided in the fourth quarter or later. The first two games this season went to overtime, with the Roadrunners dropping a 37-35 decision to No. 24 Houston in three overtimes on Sept. 3 before rallying to beat Army 41-38 in overtime one week later. UTSA saw Middle Tennessee draw to within 38-30 in the fourth quarter on Sept. 30 before a late touchdown run by Brenden Brady provided the final 15-point margin. Last November, the Roadrunners broke a 17-17 fourth-quarter deadlock against Southern Miss with two late scores in a 10-point victory before upending UAB 34-31 one week later on a TD pass with three seconds left to play. UTSA used an interception on the final play of the game to secure a 49-41 C-USA Championship Game win over WKU on Dec. 3 and then pulled to within seven points of No. 24 San Diego State in the fourth quarter of the Frisco Bowl before dropping a 38-24 decision in the 2021 finale. The Roadrunners also saw games against Illinois (37-30), Memphis (31-28), UNLV (24-17) and WKU (52-46) come down to the final minutes last fall. In 2020, UTSA's matchups against Texas State (51-48/2OT), Stephen F. Austin (24-10), Middle Tennessee (37-35), UAB (13-21), No. 15 BYU (20-27), Army (16-28), Louisiana Tech (27-26), Southern Miss (23-20) and No. 16 Louisiana (24-31) all were one-score games in the final stanza. 
Working overtime
UTSA played back-to-back overtime games to open the 2022 campaign. The Roadrunners dropped a 37-35 decision to No. 24 Houston in triple overtime in the season opener on Sept. 3. One week later, UTSA rallied from a 14-point, second-half deficit to score a 41-38 road triumph over Army West Point in one extra period to improve to 4-3 all-time in overtime contests. That marked the first time the Roadrunners have played consecutive overtime games and the second time to have two OT games in the same season (2011). UTSA joins Bowling Green, Houston and Texas Tech as the only FBS teams to have played multiple overtime contests this year.

Roadrunners collect weekly honors
The Roadrunners have collected several weekly honors so far this season. Frank Harris picked up his third Conference USA Offensive Player of the Week award on Oct. 3 and also landed on the Manning Award "Stars of the Week" list following his record-setting performance in the 45-30 road triumph over Middle Tennessee. De'Corian Clark was tabbed the East-West Shrine Bowl Breakout Offensive Player of the Week on Sept. 26 after piling up a school-record 217 yards and three touchdowns on nine receptions in the 52-24 win over Texas Southern. Lucas Dean was named to the Ray Guy Award Ray's 8 list after averaging 60.5 yards on four punts, which included a school-record 76-yarder and a 67-yard kick, versus Texas Southern. Harris picked up several honors following his performance in the 41-38 comeback win over Army in overtime on Sept. 10. He was named Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award National Player of the Week, as well as C-USA Offensive Player of the Week, and he also landed on the Davey O'Brien Great 8 and the Manning Award Stars of the Week lists. Harris also earned C-USA's weekly award following the season opener against No. 24 Houston, while Jared Sackett picked up C-USA Special Teams Player of the Week accolades after the triple-overtime setback against the Cougars in week one. Sackett earned his second weekly award this season and fourth of his career after making a 49-yard field goal as time expired in the first half and all four extra points in the win over WKU.
Traylor off to resounding start at UTSA
Head coach Jeff Traylor is off to a resounding start to his tenure at UTSA. The Gilmer, Texas, native has turned around the program by instilling his 210 Triangle of Toughness culture, producing results on and off the field. Taking over a team that won a combined seven games in the two seasons prior to his arrival, he has led the Roadrunners to a 23-9 record, the best record through 32 games by a UTSA head football coach. He already has mentored five All-Americans and a pair of NFL Draft picks during his time in San Antonio. In his first season, Traylor guided the Roadrunners to a 7-5 overall record, a runner-up finish in Conference USA's West Division with a 5-2 mark and an appearance in the First Responder Bowl. The Roadrunners received votes in a national poll for the first time in program history and the seven wins are the most by a first-year UTSA head coach. The Roadrunners enjoyed a record-setting campaign in his second season. The Roadrunners won their first 11 games, were nationally ranked (as high as No. 15) for the first time in school history and captured the program's first league title by winning the 2021 C-USA Championship with a 49-41 victory over WKU. UTSA capped the season with its second straight and third overall bowl appearance. Traylor was honored for his success as the 2021 C-USA Coach of the Year, the AFCA FBS Regional Coach of the Year for Region 4 and a finalist for the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award, AFCA National Coach of the Year and George Munger College Coach of the Year Award. A member of the Paul "Bear" Bryant Awards Coach of the Year watch list, he was chosen as the 2021 San Antonio Express-News Sportsman of the Year.
Season 12
UTSA is playing its 12th season of football in 2022. The Roadrunners started their program from scratch and, following a practice year in 2010, played their first season as an FCS Independent in 2011 before joining the Western Athletic Conference for the 2012 campaign. UTSA moved into its current league home — Conference USA — in 2013 and became a full-fledged FBS member starting with the 2014 season. The Roadrunners set NCAA modern startup program records in 2011 by drawing 56,743 fans to their inaugural game against Northeastern State and by averaging 35,521 fans for their six home contests that season. UTSA made its first postseason appearance at the 2016 New Mexico Bowl in its sixth season of play and registered its first win against a team from a Power 5 conference the following season with a 17-10 victory over Baylor. The Roadrunners captured their first conference championship by claiming the 2021 C-USA crown and capped a 12-2 campaign with their third bowl game. UTSA has posted at least six wins in six of the 11 seasons in program history and it has reached the seven-win plateau four times, including in the first two years of the Jeff Traylor era. 
UTSA picked to win C-USA crown
The defending Conference USA champion UTSA Roadrunners have been picked to finish first in the conference this season. The Roadrunners received 14 of a possible 22 first-place votes from a panel of media members that covers all 11 C-USA schools. UAB received the remaining eight first-place votes and is slotted second in the preseason poll, followed by WKU, which UTSA beat 49-41 to claim the 2021 conference crown.

Roadrunners reel in preseason honors

Under the direction of co-offensive coordinators Will Stein and Matt Mattox, UTSA has emerged as one of the top scoring offenses in Conference USA. The Roadrunners are averaging 37.3 points per game, which puts them second in the league behind Western Kentucky (40.8 ppg) and 27th among FBS teams. UTSA has posted 30-plus points in five of the first six contests this season and they have topped the 40-point barrier three times. The Roadrunners set school records for scoring last season, tallying 516 total points in 14 contests for a program-record 36.9 points per game. UTSA has scored 20-plus points in 24 consecutive games dating back to the 2020 campaign. The Roadrunners have scored a total of 1,079 in 32 games under third-year head coach Jeff Traylor, good for an average of 33.7 per game.
Aerial attack
UTSA boasts one of the top offenses in the country, featuring one of the most prolific aerial attacks in the FBS this season. Led by quarterback Frank Harris and the wide receiver trio of Joshua Cephus, De'Corian Clark and Zakhari Franklin, the Roadrunners are averaging 350.3 passing yards per contest, good for second in Conference USA and sixth nationally, and they rank 11th nationally with a league-best 498.3 total yards per game. UTSA opened the campaign by throwing for 337 yards in the 37-35, triple-overtime loss to No. 24 Houston. The Roadrunners then aired it out for 359 yards as part of a 512-yard output in the 41-38 overtime triumph over Army on Sept. 10. UTSA broke the school record for passing yards in a game with 441, including a program-record 392 from Harris, and racked up 553 yards of offense in the 52-24 victory over Texas Southern on Sept. 24. Less than one week later in the 45-30 road triumph over Middle Tennessee, Harris broke his own single-game passing yardage mark with 414 as UTSA threw for 423 yards and cranked out a season-best 590 total yards, the most since setting the school record of 624 against North Texas on Nov. 29, 2020. The Roadrunners racked up 486 yards — 273 passing and a season-best 213 rushing — in the 31-28 victory against WKU in their last outing. UTSA — which has eclipsed the 2,000-yard mark for passing yards in six games, two quicker than the previous school standard set in 2013 and matched a year ago — has registered four of the top nine single-game passing performances in program history so far this season.

Leader under center
During the course of his UTSA career, senior quarterback Frank Harris has developed into one of the team's unquestioned leaders. The Schertz Clemens High product, who owns a 24-10 record as the starting QB and more than 30 school records, has thrown for 7,290 yards and 55 touchdowns — both program records — on 643-of-964 passing (.667) and rushed for 1,474 yards and 20 TDs, the most in a career by a UTSA quarterback. In fact, Harris is one of only 13 active FBS quarterbacks with 7,000 or more passing yards and 1,000-plus rushing yards, and he has piled up those numbers in the second-fewest number of games (36) among that group. Harris opened the 2022 campaign by piling up 400 yards of offense and four TDs, passing for 337 and three scores and rushing for 63 and a touchdown in the triple-overtime loss to No. 24 Houston. He followed that with 359 yards and three scores on 32-of-45 passing to help UTSA rally from a 14-point, second-half deficit for a 41-38 overtime triumph over Army, earning him Conference USA Offensive Player of the Week for the second straight week, as well as Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award National Player of the Week accolades. Harris broke the school record for individual passing yardage with 392 on 20-of-31 passing, tossing four TD passes and adding 31 rushing yards for a school-record 423 yards of total offense in the 52-24 victory over Texas Southern. He broke his own single-game marks for passing yards with 414 and total offense with 445, scoring four total touchdowns in the 45-30 road win over Middle Tennessee, earning C-USA Offensive Player of the Week honors for the third time this season. He owns five of the top six individual passing performances in program annals with four coming in the first five games this season. Harris currently leads the nation in total offense with 375.2 yards per game and he ranks fourth in passing yards (1,997) and eighth in points responsible for (110). The 2022 Conference USA Preseason Offensive Player of the Year guided UTSA to the most successful season in program history last fall, helping lead the Roadrunners to a 12-2 record, their first conference championship and top-25 ranking and to their second straight and third overall bowl game. He set school single-season records for passing yards (3,177), completions (398), touchdowns (27), attempts (263), completion percentage (.661), passing efficiency (152.5), total offense (3,743) and touchdowns responsible for (33). He also rushed for 566 yards — a program record for a QB — and six scores and caught three passes for 36 yards and a TD en route to Dave Campbell's Texas Football Offensive Player of the Year and second-team all-conference accolades. A member of preseason watch lists for the Davey O'Brien, Earl Campbell Tyler Rose, Manning, Maxwell and Walter Camp Player of the Year Awards, Harris has overcome multiple season-ending injuries sustained earlier in his career to emerge as one of the top signal callers in the country.

Terrific trio
UTSA boasts arguably the most productive pass-catching trio in the FBS this season. Senior wide receivers Joshua Cephus, De'Corian "JT" Clark and Zakhari Franklin have teamed up to provide the Roadrunners with a formidable air attack. The trio has combined for 492 receptions, 6,286 receiving yards and 57 touchdowns during their career. No other FBS team has a trio of active players with more receptions, receiving yards or touchdown catches. The next closest teams are Eastern Michigan for receptions (425) and Ball State for yards (5,094) and TDs. This season, the trio has totaled 126 catches for 1,753 yards and 15 TDs. They all rank in the top five in Conference USA in both receptions per game and receiving yards per contest. Additionally, all three receivers are in the top 15 nationally in receiving yards with Clark seventh (618), Franklin 14th (586) and Cephus 15th (549). No other team currently has more than one player on that list and Kent State and Ohio State are the only other schools with two in the top 25. They also all rank in the top 25 nationally in receptions per game this season, while no other FBS team has more than one player on that chart. All three receivers were voted into the coveted single-digit jersey numbers by their teammates this season, with Cephus wearing No. 2, Clark in No. 1 and Franklin donning No. 4.

Keeping the streak alive
The UTSA receiving duo of Zakhari Franklin and Joshua Cephus both rank near the top of the chart for consecutive games with a reception entering the 2022 campaign. Franklin has caught a pass in all 38 career contests in which he has been available dating back to 2019, good for a tie for the second-longest streak in the FBS behind Minnesota's Chris Autman-Bell, who has a reception in 41 straight games. Cephus has at least one catch in 32 consecutive games dating back to the 2020 season opener, putting him in a tie for seventh nationally.
Franklin rewriting record book
UTSA senior Zakhari Franklin has rewritten UTSA's record book for receivers. The Biletnikoff Award and Reese's Senior Bowl watch list honoree smashed UTSA single-season standards for receptions (81), receiving yards (1,027), receiving yards per game (79.0), receiving touchdowns (12) and 100-yard games (4) last year en route to first-team all-conference and second-team Dave Campbell's Texas Football All-Texas College honors. The Cedar Hill High product also owns the program's single-game record for receptions with 12, which he turned into 138 yards and a pair of scores versus Army in 2020. He started the 2022 campaign off with a bang by catching 10 passes for 100 yards against No. 24 Houston. He then hauled in 10 passes for 122 yards and a pair of TDs in the 41-38 overtime win at Army to push his UTSA career record for 100-yard games to 11 and give him eight of the top 14 single-game receiving yardage totals in program history. He caught six passes for 84 yards and a touchdown against No. 20 Texas and followed that with six catches for 87 yards and a score in the win over Texas Southern. He found the end zone twice and totaled 98 yards on five catches in the 45-30 win at Middle Tennessee and had six receptions for 95 yards in the home victory over WKU to give him 43 receptions for 586 yards and six TDs this year, and he ranks in the top 12 in the FBS in all of those categories. Franklin continues to sit atop the UTSA all-time charts for receptions (211), receiving yards (2,798) and TD catches (28). Further, he ranks third among active FBS players in receptions and receiving touchdowns, fifth in receiving yards, seventh in receptions per game (5.55) and ninth in receiving yards per game (73.6).
Sure-handed Cephus
Joshua Cephus has built a reputation as a wide receiver who does not drop anything thrown his way. The senior from Houston has been tagged with only six drops during his career — none this season — for a drop rate of 3.2% according to Pro Football Focus. He started 2022 by piling up 106 yards on seven receptions, including a 51-yard catch-and-run that opened the scoring for UTSA against No. 24 Houston. Cephus then recorded his second straight 100-yard game with 112 on 10 receptions in the 41-38 overtime triumph over Army. He caught seven passes for 80 yards and had a 45-yard TD catch wiped out by a penalty against No. 20 Texas before topping the century mark for the third time this season with a career-high 114 yards and a TD on five receptions versus Texas Southern. Cephus had seven receptions for 91 yards in the road triumph over Middle Tennessee and eight for 46 in the win over WKU to give him 44 catches for 549 yards and two TDs this year. The Dekaney High product now has turned 181 catches into 2,052 yards and 14 touchdowns during his career, marks that rank in the top three on the program's all-time chart.
Clark creating highlight-reel catches
De'Corian "JT" Clark has emerged as one of UTSA's top receiving targets, often making catches worthy of a spot on any highlight reel. The senior from Fort Worth caught six passes for 70 yards and a pair of spectacular touchdown grabs in the season-opening setback to No. 24 Houston. Clark — who gets his nickname from his middle name, John Thomas — hauled in a 15-yard pass that gave the Roadrunners a 21-7 advantage in the third quarter, and he made a diving catch between two defenders on a 13-yard TD that forced a third overtime. Clark provided another highlight clip with his game-winning 7-yard grab in the corner of the end zone to help lift UTSA to a 41-38 overtime triumph over Army. He provided more highlights in the 52-24 win over Texas Southern, breaking the school record for receiving yards in a game with 217 — the third-most by any FBS player this season — on nine receptions and was tabbed East-West Shrine Bowl Breakout Offensive Player of the Week. He caught three touchdown passes — a 31-yarder where he stretched the ball just inside the pylon, a 69-yard catch-and-run on the opening possession of the second half and a 7-yard grab over a defender in the end zone in the fourth quarter — to match his own UTSA standard set last year in the road win over WKU. Clark turned in his second straight 100-yard game with 139 yards on eight catches in the 45-30 road triumph over Middle Tennessee to give him five for his career, earning him a spot on the Biletnikoff Award watch list as part of 10 midseason additions. In his last outing, he hauled in a 12-yard touchdown grab over a defender in the corner of the end zone in the 31-28 victory against WKU. Clark now has 39 catches, 618 yards and a team-high seven touchdowns and is one of only 17 FBS players with three touchdown catches in a game this year. A product of O.D. Wyatt High School, he surpassed the 1,000-yard mark for his career against Texas on Sept. 24 and now has 1,436 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns on 100 catches in 39 contests.
Cardenas a dual threat at tight end 
UTSA junior Oscar Cardenas has developed into a punishing blocker and reliable pass-catcher at the tight end position. The San Antonio Brandeis High graduate earned a spot on the John Mackey Award preseason watch list this summer after a breakout 2021 campaign. He appeared in all 14 games and made four starts last fall, catching 16 passes for 233 yards and two touchdowns. Cardenas played a role in one of the iconic moments in UTSA's history, hauling in the game-winning TD reception after a tipped pass with three seconds left in the 34-31 victory over UAB last November. He also had a 28-yard catch on the game-winning drive in the final minute versus the Blazers to help the Roadrunners clinch the Conference USA West Division title. Cardenas, who has 36 career contests under his belt, came up big in a key road triumph over WKU last season as well, catching a pair of passes for 19 yards, including an 11-yard TD. He caught a pair of passes in the 2022 opener against No. 24 Houston including a key 25-yard reception that set up the game-tying field goal as time expired. He added two more receptions for 18 yards in the 41-38 overtime triumph over Army and followed that with 28 yards on three catches against No. 20 Texas. Following a 16-yard grab in the 45-30 win at Middle Tennessee, Cardenas now has eight catches for 98 yards this year and 27 receptions for 377 yards and two touchdowns as a Roadrunner.
Experience up front
UTSA boasts one of the most experienced offensive lines in the FBS this fall. The quartet of Kevin Davis (47 starts), Makai Hart (22), Terrell Haynes (26) and Ahofitu Maka (43) have combined for 138 career starts, which ranks in the top five among FBS schools. That foursome also has combined to play in 156 games. With four starters returning entering the 2022 campaign, UTSA was tied with several other schools behind nine squads that returned all five starters this season.
Maka makes it happen on and off the field
Ahofitu Maka is back for his fourth season as UTSA's starting center, leading the way on a veteran offensive line. A second-team all-conference selection in each of the last two seasons, the Honolulu, Hawai'i, native has started 43 career games — 42 at center — as a Roadrunner after transferring from Independence Community College prior to the 2019 campaign. Dating back to the start of the 2020 season, the Lombardi Award and Outland Trophy preseason watch list member has allowed only two sacks in nearly 1,200 pass-blocking snaps, according to Pro Football Focus, helping pave the way for a record-setting offense. In 2020, UTSA broke single-season program records for rushing yards (2,585), rushing yards per game (215.4), yards per rush (5.21) and rushing touchdowns (24). Maka surrendered just one sack and three hits on the quarterback in 430 pass-blocking snaps that season. Last fall, Maka — a member of the Polynesian College Football Player of the Year watch list — started all 14 contests, allowing just one sack and three hits on the quarterback in 471 pass-blocking snaps to help UTSA set school records for total yards (6,146), total yards per game (439.0), passing yards (3,577), passing yards per game (255.5), points scored (516) and points per game (36.9). So far this season, Maka has not surrendered a sack or hit on the quarterback in 290 pass-blocking snaps and has only committed two penalties in 474 plays. Also an excellent student, Maka is a two-time CoSIDA Academic All-District honoree, a three-time C-USA Commissioner's Honor Roll member, a 2021 C-USA All-Academic Team pick and a C-USA Academic Medal recipient. On Sept. 28, he was chosen as a semifinalist for the William V. Campbell Trophy, college football's premier scholar-athlete award.
Fourth-down stops
UTSA has found recent success in stopping opponents on fourth down. In the 31-28 victory against Western Kentucky on Oct. 8, the Roadrunners stopped the Hilltoppers three times — all in the second half — on four fourth down-conversion attempts. They forced an incomplete pass on a fourth-and-15 try midway through the third quarter before Nick Booker-Brown batted down a pass on a fourth-and-14 situation later in the stanza. With less than four minutes remaining in the game, Rashad Wisdom broke up a long pass attempt on a fourth-and-seven to give the ball back to UTSA for good. In the 45-30 road triumph over Middle Tennessee, the Roadrunners stopped the Blue Raiders on a pair of fourth-down tries in the fourth quarter and they also thwarted Texas Southern's only fourth-down attempt in the third quarter of the 52-24 victory the week prior. In the last three contests, UTSA's defense has gotten off the field on six of the past eight fourth down-conversion attempts combined.
D-line rotation keeps Roadrunners fresh
UTSA defensive coordinator Jess Loepp uses a deep rotation up front to keep the Roadrunners fresh throughout the course of a game. The Roadrunners played nine defensive linemen in the season-opening 37-35, triple-overtime loss to No. 24 Houston. Brandon Brown, Brandon Matterson and Asyrus Simon drew starts and combined to register 10 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a forced fumble and a pass breakup. Simon led that trio with seven stops, while Brown made 1.5 sacks and caused the fumble. Joe Evans (3 tackles, 1.5 TFL, 0.5 sacks), Lamonte McDougle (2 tackles), Trumane Bell II (0.5 TFL, QBH), Christian Clayton (tackle), Zach Causey and Ronald Triplette also saw snaps against the Cougars. A total of 10 defensive linemen saw action in the 41-38 comeback triumph over Army on Sept. 10, led by Matterson (5 tackles, 0.5 TFL), McDougle (4 tackles), Bell (4 tackles, sack), Evans (3 tackles) and Nick Booker-Brown (3 tackles, sack). UTSA has rotated 10 players on the d-line in each of the past four games with Matterson's five tackles pacing the unit against No. 20 Texas, Triplette's six stops leading the way in the win over Texas Southern, Evans' two tackles topping the group in the 45-30 win at Middle Tennessee and Brown's three tackles setting the pace in the 31-28 victory over WKU. A total of 10 UTSA defensive linemen have been credited with a TFL this fall with Brown's 3.5 leading the unit.
Linebacker leaders 
The Roadrunners are not short on leadership in the second line of defense this fall, as three players who earned one of the coveted single-digit jersey numbers lining up as starters at linebacker. The tandem of Trevor Harmanson, who is wearing No. 1, and Jamal Ligon, who is donning No. 8 for the second straight season, provides UTSA with two veterans in the middle. A super senior from Dickinson, Texas, Harmanson has recorded 215 tackles, 23.5 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, two interceptions, three forced fumbles and a pair of recoveries in 43 career contests. Ligon, a junior out of Tyler, has registered 178 tackles, 10 TFLs, five sacks, three forced fumbles, a pair of recoveries and an interception in 29 games as a Roadrunner, and he owns the program single-game tackles record with 19 against Middle Tennessee in 2020. Meanwhile, Dadrian Taylor is back in his No. 7 jersey for his final year manning the SAM linebacker spot. In 51 career appearances, the Shiner, Texas, native has logged 95 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, four PBUs, two fumble recoveries and a pair of interceptions, including a pick-six versus Louisiana Tech last season.
Wisdom in the secondary
UTSA senior safety Rashad Wisdom has been one of the team leaders since he stepped foot on campus in the spring semester of 2019. A two-time first-team all-conference performer, the Converse Judson High graduate has paced the Roadrunners in total tackles in each of the past two seasons. Last fall, the 2022 C-USA Preseason Defensive Player of the Year recorded 88 tackles, 67 solo stops, four tackles for loss, six pass breakups and a forced fumble. A member of preseason watch lists for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and Chuck Bednarik and Paycom Jim Thorpe Awards, he opened 2022 with five tackles, including four solo stops, against No. 24 Houston, followed by a tackle and a fumble recovery in the comeback win over Army. Wisdom registered four tackles at No. 20 Texas and two more in the win against Texas Southern despite only playing one half. Wisdom, who missed the Middle Tennessee game due to injury, logged a season-high 10 tackles, including eight solo stops, and a key PBU on fourth down late in the 31-28 win against WKU. He now has 249 total tackles, 11 tackles for loss, five interceptions, four forced fumbles, two sacks and a pair of fumble recoveries in 43 career contests. Wisdom is ninth among active FBS players with a school-record 176 solo tackles and 11th with two interception returns for touchdowns, which also is good for a share of the school record.
Mayfield comfortable on an island
UTSA cornerback Corey Mayfield Jr. was thrown into the fire, so to speak, as a true freshman in 2018, seeing action in 10 games and drawing two starts. The Forney, Texas, native has made the most of that early playing time, developing into a steady presence at the position during the course of his career with 40 starts in 53 contests, the most games played on the current roster. The son of former Oklahoma and NFL defensive lineman Corey Mayfield has received honorable mention all-conference accolades in each of the past two seasons. Last fall, he registered 37 tackles, three tackles for loss, three pass breakups one forced fumble and an interception that he returned 49 yards for a touchdown in the 45-0 shutout of Rice. In 2020, he had a pair of interceptions and broke up a team-best six passes to go along with 37 stops and three TFLs. He started this season with six total tackles, four solo stops and a key pass breakup deep in UTSA territory against No. 24 Houston. Mayfield then registered three tackles and a PBU in overtime of UTSA's 41-38 comeback win over Army on Sept. 10 before logging four solo stops and a PBU at No. 20 Texas. Mayfield made three tackles in the victory against Texas Southern, added four more in the road win over Middle Tennessee and then posted six unassisted tackles and a pair of pass breakups in the win over WKU to give him 26 tackles and five PBUs this year and 129 tackles, 15 PBUs, four interceptions and two forced fumbles for his career.
Punter from Down Under
In its brief history, UTSA has developed consistent success in the punting game with the likes of Kristian Stern and Yannis Routsas, a 2017 Ray Guy Award semifinalist. Lucas Dean has emerged as the next in that strong punting lineage. A product of Prokick Australia and the first Roadrunner from Down Under, Dean has used an Australian Rules Football background to help provide UTSA with a weapon in the kicking game since his arrival on campus in 2019. This season, he is averaging 45.9 yards on 18 punts with six of 50-plus yards and eight inside the 20-yard line. Dean enjoyed a career day in the 52-24 win over Texas Southern on Sept. 24, breaking his own school record with a 76-yard punt late in the contest He also had kicks of 67 and 52 yards and averaged 60.5 on four punts in that contest to smash his own UTSA standard of 51.2 set against North Texas last season. Dean averaged 52.0 yards on two punts with a long of 57 in the 45-30 win at Middle Tennessee one week later. As a true freshman, he averaged 40.8 yards on 65 punts and booted 12 of 50-plus yards. Dean provided quite the encore in 2020, shattering UTSA's single-season punting average record with a 46.0 mark to lead Conference USA and rank sixth nationally. He was a Ray Guy Award semifinalist, the C-USA Special Teams Player of the Year and a second-team All-American by the Sporting News that season. Last fall, Dean punted 47 times for a 45.2 average that ranks second on the program's single-season chart, earning second-team all-league accolades. The Ray Guy Award preseason watch list member now owns four of the five longest punts in UTSA history and has improved his school record career average to 44.0, which ranks 10th among active FBS punters.
Welcome back, Sackett
Not often does a college football player finish his career where he started after transferring, but UTSA senior Jared Sackett is doing just that this season. As a true freshman for the Roadrunners in 2017, he made 19 of 22 field goals (.864) for the Roadrunners to rank third in the FBS in field goals per game (1.9) and ninth in field-goal percentage (.864) despite not appearing in the season opener. Those numbers helped him become the second Freshman All-American in program history and UTSA's first Lou Groza Award semifinalist. The Fort Worth native connected on 14 of 19 field goals en route to his second straight season as a Groza Award semifinalist in 2018. He transferred to Arkansas to kick for a coaching staff that included Jeff Traylor, but he sat out the 2019 season and then moved on to USF following a coaching change. Sackett made 5 of 7 field goals and all 10 extra points he tried in limited action in 2020 for the Bulls. After not kicking in any games last fall, he transferred back to UTSA for his final campaign, entering this season as a member of the Lou Groza Award watch list. He opened his second stint as a Roadrunner by drilling a pair of field goals, including a 37-yarder as time expired to send the game into overtime, and also made all three extra points and had two touchbacks on four kickoffs against No. 24 Houston. Sackett was tabbed C-USA Special Teams Player of the Week for his effort against the Cougars. Against No. 20 Texas, he made both field goal tries and two extra-point attempts, recorded three touchbacks and executed an onside kick that was recovered by Jimmori Robinson. Sackett drilled a 43-yard field goal, had three touchbacks and made seven PATs in the 52-24 win over Texas Southern and then made a 28-yarder and six extra points to go along with three touchbacks in the 45-30 victory at Middle Tennessee. After splitting the uprights from a season-long distance of 49 yards and making all four PATs in the 31-28 win versus WKU, Sackett earned the C-USA weekly award for the second time this season. He now has made 45 field goals — tied for 21st among active FBS kickers — on 57 tries (78.9%) and 78 PATs during his collegiate career.
Transfers making immediate impact
UTSA has seen several first-year transfers make an immediate impact this season. Nicktroy Fortune, who last played for West Virginia, has started the first six games at cornerback and registered 18 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss and four pass breakups. LSU transfer Joe Evans has seen action on the defensive line and owns eight stops, 2.5 TFLs and half a sack in four contests. NC State transfer defensive lineman Nick Booker-Brown made his UTSA debut in the 41-38 comeback win at Army, recording three tackles including a sack for a 5-yard loss, and he now has eight stops and a pair of PBUs on the year. Pig Cage, a defensive back from LSU who started his career at Nicholls, has logged seven tackles and a TFL in six contests. On offense, Venly Tatafu, who came from Independence Community College, earned the starting left tackle job and has helped the offense average 498.3 yards per game. Arkansas transfer running back Trelon Smith has rushed for 178 yards and two touchdowns in four outings, while Colorado transfer Chris Carpenter became the first Roadrunner to return a kickoff for a touchdown with a 97-yarder in the victory against Texas Southern.
Carpenter makes history
Chris Carpenter stamped his name in the UTSA record book as the first Roadrunner to return a kickoff for a touchdown when he took one back 97 yards for a score in the 52-24 victory over Texas Southern on Sept. 24. A transfer from Colorado, the Jacksonville, Texas, native's return also soared to the top of the program's list of longest plays, moving ahead of Jarveon Williams' 92-yard run versus Southern Miss in 2016. Now in its 12th season, UTSA had returned a total of 396 kickoffs without a score before Carpenter broke free for his record setter. The previous longest kickoff return before Carpenter's 97-yarder was 87 yards by Kam Jones at Florida Atlantic in 2014. 
FBS graduates
UTSA boasts 22 graduates on its 2022 roster, a total that is tied for the third-most among FBS teams. Nebraska leads the way with 26, followed by Liberty and Rice with 23. The Roadrunners are equal with Baylor, Eastern Michigan, Fresno State, North Texas, Pitt and Texas State.

Duo in seventh season of college football
UTSA seniors Clifford Chattman and Dru Prox are in rare company as two of only 23 FBS players who are in at least their seventh season of college football. In fact, that duo makes UTSA the only school on the list with two current seventh-year players.
A focus on recruiting Texas
UTSA's 112-man roster features 87 players — 78% — who hail from the state of Texas. Louisiana stands second with five players, while there are three each from California, Florida and Mississippi and two apiece from Georgia and Tennessee. Hawai'i, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon and Virginia each have produced one current Roadrunner, while Lucas Dean is the lone UTSA player from Australia.
Keeping them home
UTSA head coach Jeff Traylor and his staff have placed an emphasis on recruiting the city of San Antonio and thesurrounding area. The current roster includes 26 players from Greater San Antonio with a team-high five hailing from perennial power Converse Judson High School.

UTSA's 210 Triangle of Toughness
Since his arrival in December 2019, UTSA head coach Jeff Traylor has instilled into the program his 210 Triangle Of Toughness Culture Pillars: Integrity, Passion, Mental & Physical Toughness, Selfless and Perfect Effort. As part of that culture, the players voted after fall camp on who would earn single-digit jersey numbers, a reward for representing mental and physical toughness on and off the field. The numbers 2, 1 and 0 — San Antonio's area code — were chosen for the players voted to represent the 210 Brand, the UTSA Triangle of Toughness. Below are the single-digit jersey numbers as voted by their teammates:
0 — Frank Harris, Rashad Wisdom
1 — De'Corian Clark, Trevor Harmanson
2 — Joshua Cephus, Corey Mayfield Jr.
