UTSA Roadrunners vs Texas Longhorns

UTSA Roadrunners

UTSA currently holds a 1-1 record coming into Week 3 against Texas. In Week 1, the team lost to the Houston Cougars 37-35 in three overtimes. However, last week, they achieved a win over the Army Black Knights by a score of 41-38.

So far this season season, UTSA has recorded 366.5 passing yards per game, ranking 11th in NCAA Football. Meanwhile, their rushing yards per game total 128.5, ranking at number 94 among all college football teams. They have also recorded five sacks on defense and will need to get pressure on the quarterback to disrupt Texas dual-quarterback system.

The Roadrunners reported that RB Kaedric Cobbs will miss some games due to a knee injury. RB De'Anthony Lewis, RB Jaylon Lott and OL Demetris Allen will also be absent from some games for undisclosed reasons.

Texas Longhorns

The Longhorns' current record is 1-1. They won over the UL-Monroe Warhawks 52-10 in Week 1, but got defeated by the Alabama Crimson Tide 20-19 in Week 2.

Texas has recorded 294.5 passing yards per game, ranking 37th overall in NCAA Football. The team's rushing yards per game figure is currently 106.5, placing them in 107th among all college football teams. They, like UTSA, have recorded five sacks including two against the mighty Crimson Tide a week ago.

Starting QB Quinn Ewers reportedly will be absent for four to six weeks after sustaining a collarbone injury. His backup in the last two games was Card, who will likely start for the UTSA game. Several other injuries are plaguing the team as well, including WR Jaden Alexis (knee) and TE Brayden Liebrock (shoulder).
