SAN ANTONIO — The sixth and final episode of "UTSA Football: The Birth of a Program" will premiere at 6:30 p.m. on Friday.

The last 30-minute show 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 series that began in May has chronicled the start of the Roadrunners' inaugural football campaign leading up to their season-opening 31-3 victory on Sept. 3 against Northeastern (Okla.) State, which was played in front of an NCAA start-up program record crowd of 56,743 at the Alamodome.

The documentary has offered 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 has taken 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 continued to record Coker's preparations throughout the spring, summer and his program's first-ever fall camp.
