Schedule and Odds

Texas San Antonio had its sights set on bigger things last season with a lot of returning talent, but due to injuries, still finished with only Four wins. The Roadrunners are now stuck with the least amount of returning starters in FBS and have an over/under of 2.5 wins. With so few players returning, not much is expected from these guys.

Quarterback will be up for grabs for possibly the entire season until someone takes hold of the position. Austin Robinson and Blake Bogenschutz are the ones competing and both got time last year. Unfortunately, the two combined for one touchdown and seven interceptions in their limited amount of work. Improving on that number will be at the forefront for this offense. UTSA will lean on all-around running back Jarveon Williams as much as possible, but he’s also coming off an injury. Their top receiver might be tight end David Morgan II, who only started in six Games last year due to injury. Wide receiver is a question mark with Aaron Grubb (23 receptions) and Kenny Bias (seven receptions) the top returners.

To go along with that, the offensive line isn’t in a great position either. They’ll have two seniors on the right side, led by guard William Cavanaugh, but the left side and center will be extremely young with three sophomores expected to start from that group. This is a team that scored 17.1 points per Game last year and only returns two starters from that offense.

The defensive side has Four returning starters, but that’s not saying much. Three of those guys make up 62 of the 79 total starts from the two-deep roster. Meaning the 19 other players account for just 17 career starts. A positive is that the defense was solid last year, only allowing 25.9 points per Game, which is pretty good for a team that had eight losses.

Linebacker Drew Douglas has the most experience of anyone and was third on the team in tackles last year. He’ll be helped by a couple more seniors in the secondary in Bennett Okotcha and Mauricio Sanchez. There are some pieces to work with in addition to multiple transfers coming in. The line doesn’t feature any returning starters, but there are three seniors expected to start.

The problem for UTSA once again is that its non-Conference Schedule is absolutely brutal. The Roadrunners almost knocked off Arizona last year, but that’ll be harder to do this year. In addition, they get to face three other schools that are almost certainly losses. It’s hard to point out wins for UTSA’s C-USA Schedule, considering they were shutout by UTEP last season. Their home Schedule isn’t all that kind either, with Old Dominion being UTSA’s best shot at a win, to go with road trips at North Texas and Southern Miss (two teams they beat last year).

The Roadrunners have a tough Schedule combined with an inexperienced team, which doesn’t scream improvement. It’ll be hard for this team to surpass three wins. In fact, it’ll be hard for them to even reach three wins.
