UTSA announces 2024 season opener versus Kennesaw State

SAN ANTONIO — UTSA announced on Tuesday that it will host Kennesaw State in the 2024 season opener on Aug. 31 at the Alamodome.
The Roadrunners and the Owls, currently an FCS Independent that will join Conference USA next year, will meet for the first time in the 2024 lid-lifter.
The matchup replaces the originally scheduled 2024 season opener against New Mexico State, which was part of a four-game series that was canceled in July as the Aggies have transitioned from an FBS Independent to a member of Conference USA. The game also completes next year's non-conference slate, which includes back-to-back road contests against Texas State and Texas on Sept. 7 and Sept. 14, as well as a home game against Houston Christian on Sept. 21.
The Roadrunners also will host American Athletic Conference home contests against Memphis, North Texas, Temple and Tulane and travel to Navy, Rice, South Florida and Tulsa in 2024 for their second season in the league.
Under the direction of two-time conference coach of the year Jeff Traylor, the Roadrunners are coming off an 11-3 campaign that saw them capture their second straight Conference USA crown and play in a bowl game for the third year in a row. UTSA has been ranked in the top 25 in each of the last two seasons and boasts a combined 23 wins over that span, the fourth-best total among all FBS teams behind only Georgia (29), Michigan (25) and Alabama (24).
UTSA has been picked to finish second in the AAC Preseason Media Poll and will kick off its 13th season of play on Saturday, Sept. 2, against Houston. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. at TDECU Stadium and the game will be televised nationally on FS1.
The Roadrunners will face Texas State for the home opener at 2:30 p.m. the following Saturday at the Alamodome. The Roadrunners also will host Army at 6 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 15, UAB on Oct. 14, East Carolina on Oct. 28, Rice on Nov. 11 and South Florida at 8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 17.
