UTSA leads La. Tech 21-10 at the Half


UTSA has finished it’s first half of football as a top 25 ranked team.  The Roadrunners head into Ruston at 7-0 and 3-0 in Conference USA play after, quite possibly, the biggest week in the history of UTSA football.

Historical Week

UTSA started the week after their 45-0 win over the Rice Owls with the news that the Raodrunners entered the national rankings for the first time in program history.  UTSA comes in #25 in the coaches poll and #24 in the AP poll. But the big news didn’t stop there.

Throughout the season there has been speculation that the shifting conference situation in college sports could end up allowing the Roadrunners an opportunity to move up to a more prestigious conference.

Late in the week, it was confirmed that UTSA along with 5 other schools would leave Conference USA for the American Athletic Conference.

La Tech was waiting

The Bulldogs did not change conferences, at least not yet. But while UTSA has basked in the glow of a historic week, La Tech waited for the Runners to make their way to Ruston.

La Tech is 2-4 and 1-1 in conference play. Coach Skip Holtz and his team showed they were not ready to give UTSA any victory lap when they moved 82 yards in 6 plays to take a 7-0 lead.

UTSA  Answers and then some

2 plays later Frank Harris connected with Zakhari Franklin on a 75-yard touchdown pass.

LA Tech added 3 more points but Sincere McCormick added a 2 yard touchdown run and Franklin pulled in a second touchdown in the second quarter to take a 21-10 lead over the Bulldogs.

Still Making History

With his 4 catches in the first half, Franklin has caught more passes than anyone in UTSA history.
