RUSTON – The UTSA Roadrunners closed the book on a disappointing 2019 season with a 41-27 loss to Louisiana Tech (9-3, 6-2) at Aillet Stadium on Saturday night.
The game was delayed nearly two hours and 30 minutes due to lightning before kickoff. Roadrunners quarterback Jordan Weeks passed for 280 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions. Running back Sincere McCormick rushed for 119 yards on 17 carries and added 12 receiving yards on four catches.
After a field goal from UTSA, LA Tech answered back to put together two consecutive quick scoring drives to take a 14-3 lead. Brenden Brady cut the UTSA deficit to four when he scored a touchdown from two yards out to make it a 14-10 game after the first quarter.
UTSA’s defense came up big to give the Roadrunners the lead as Blaze Moorhead pounced on the loose football in the end zone, putting the visitors up 17-14. The Bulldogs added 10 consecutive points to take the lead for good and hold the 24-17 lead at halftime.
The second half belonged to the Bulldogs as Weeks was picked off and James Jackson returned it 17 yards for a touchdown to help push the lead to 31-17. The teams traded field goals as LA Tech got the final score of the game, a 24-yard touchdown pass from Smith to Hebert.
The Roadrunners finish up a disappointing season 4-8 overall and just 3-5 in conference play. One of the biggest questions is will Frank Wilson return as coach in 2020 and when can fans expect an announcement?
UTSA athletic director Lisa Campos said it’s too early to say whether Frank Wilson will return as the Roadrunners’ head coach next season.
“The evaluation is still definitely continuing,” Campos said.
