SAN ANTONIO — UTSA will open its fourth season of play and first as a full-fledged member of the Football Bowl Subdivision in front of a national television audience when it makes the trek east on IH-10 to face Houston on Friday night. The second meeting between the two programs and first non-Saturday game in Roadrunners history is scheduled to kick off at 8 p.m. on ESPNU and it will be the inaugural contest at the brand new TDECU Stadium.

UTSA, which has won 19 of its first 34 tilts in program annals, is coming off a 7-5 campaign that saw it post a 6-2 ledger in its first campaign as a member of Conference USA. In fact, the Roadrunners, who are opening on the road for the third consecutive year, come into this fall's opener riding a five-game winning streak, which is one shy of the school record set from the finale of the inaugural 2011 season through the first five outings of the following year.

Led by fourth-year head coach Larry Coker, UTSA returns a national-leading 37 seniors and total of 21 starters (9 offense/10 defense/2 kickers), which also tops the FBS, this fall.
