SAN ANTONIO — The second episode of "UTSA Football: The Birth of a Program" will premiere at 10 p.m. on Saturday.
 
The second 30-minute installment of the six-part series can be seen on FOX Sports Southwest, which reaches more than 10 million cable and satellite TV homes in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana (check local listings for channel number).
 
The reality sports documentary series that began two weeks ago is chronicling the start of the Roadrunners' inaugural football campaign leading up to their season opener on Sept. 3 against Northeastern (Okla.) State.

The show offers an all-access look at how the UTSA football program was started from scratch two years ago by University President and San Antonio native Dr. Ricardo Romo and Athletics Director Lynn Hickey, the only female AD in Texas to oversee both men's and women's sports.

The series also takes viewers on a behind-the-scenes journey that began in March 2009 when UTSA hired Larry Coker to guide the new program. UTSA and FOX Sports Southwest camera crews began following Coker this spring as he readied the team for the inaugural season and they have continued to record Coker's preparations throughout the spring and entering this summer.
