On Saturday, college football action resumes with the interconference showdown from DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin, Texas, where the Texas Longhorns welcome the UTSA Roadrunners. These two schools meet for the first time ever, so this is definitely going to be an interesting matchup to watch.
After losing a triple-overtime nailbiter to the No. 24 Houston Cougars 37-35 in Week 1, the UTSA Roadrunners needed overtime to beat the Army Black Knights 41-38 in Week 2. Senior QB Frank Harris had a big game at Michie Stadium in West Point, throwing for 359 yards and three touchdowns, while senior wideout Zakhari Franklin posted ten receptions for 122 yards and a couple of scores.
The Roadrunners took good care of the ball while forcing two turnovers. They also outgained Army 512-483 in total yards, and senior RB Brenden Brady led the way for UTSA’s backfield with 19 carries for 76 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The Roadrunners managed to slow down the Black Knight’s rushing, but they gave up 304 yards through the air and a thumping 16.9 yards per pass.
On the other side, the Texas Longhorns lost to the Alabama Crimson Tide 20-19 in Week 2. Playing as 21.5-point home underdogs, the Longhorns nearly pulled off a huge upset against the No. 1 team in the country. Alabama was sloppy, dropping passes left and right, but the Longhorns certainly proved their worth and stood toe to toe with the arguably best team in the country.
Texas racked up 371 total yards and yielded 374 in a return. Sophomore signal-caller Hudson Card completed 14 of his 22 passing attempts for 158 yards, while freshman Quinn Ewers went 9-of-12 for 134 yards. Junior RB Bijan Robinson had 21 totes for 57 yards and a touchdown while catching three passes for 73 yards, and sophomore WR Xavier Worthy added five receptions for 97 yards.
