Team History

The UTSA Roadrunners are a Division I program located in San Antonio. UTSA — also known as the University of Texas at San Antonio — competes in Conference USA and is coached by Jeff Traylor.

UTSA, relatively speaking, is still in its infancy stage. The program is barely a decade old, as its inaugural season was in 2011. The Roadrunners started as an independent at the Football Championship Subdivision level (formerly known as Division I-AA) before transitioning to the Football Bowl Subdivision in 2012.

Competing in the Western Athletic Conference under Larry Coker, a former national championship-winning coach at Miami, the Roadrunners went 8-4. As a transitional FBS member, the Roadrunners were not eligible for a bowl despite reaching the six-win threshold.

In 2013, UTSA joined C-USA. Despite being picked last in the preseason media poll, the Roadrunners overcame odds to go 7-5, including 6-2 in the conference. They did not become fully bowl eligible, however, until the following season.

Frank Wilson, an assistant at LSU, took over as UTSA’s head coach in 2016, replacing Coker. In his first season, he guided the Roadrunners to a 6-6 record and their first bowl appearance. The Roadrunners ultimately landed in the New Mexico Bowl, which they lost 23-20 to New Mexico.

Since Traylor came aboard in 2020, UTSA has become one of college football’s best Group of Five programs. The Roadrunners went 7-5 in Traylor’s first season, falling 31-24 to Louisiana in the First Responder Bowl. The following season, UTSA went 12-2, captured the C-USA title, and cracked the Associated Press Top 25 poll for the first time. At one point, the Roadrunners were also ranked by the College Football Playoff Committee. The Roadrunners — who had climbed as high as No. 15 in the AP poll — wound up in the Frisco Bowl, which they lost 38-24 to San Diego State.

UTSA defended its C-USA championship in 2022, going 11-3, including 8-0 in conference play. The Roadrunners, however, dropped to 0-4 all-time in bowl games, falling 18-12 to Troy in the Cure Bowl.

Based on its recent success, UTSA became an attractive program in conference realignment. As such, the Roadrunners are slated to join the American Athletic Conference in July 2023, along with UAB, Florida Atlantic, Charlotte, North Texas, and Rice.

What is the worst season in UTSA program history?
