The #21 Texas Longhorns host the UTSA Roadrunners on Saturday at a sold out Darrell K. Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium. The Roadrunners, led by head coach Jeff Traylor, bring a bold offense into the matchup led by dynamic redshirt senior quarterback Frank Harris. Harris averages 348 passing yards per game but can also make plays with his feet.
The Texas quarterback situation isn't as certain as that of UTSA. The Longhorns will either start Hudson Card who suffered an ankle injury in the Alabama game, or redshirt freshman Charles Wright.
The outcome of Saturday's contest is critical for both teams. Texas looks to wrap-up its non-conference slate with a winning record before heading to Lubbock next week to face Texas Tech in its Big 12 opener. Simply put, the Longhorns need to prove they can get over the hump after suffering an emotional low following the loss to Alabama. For the Roadrunners, a loss means a losing record after three games. UTSA lost only two games all of last season, and it would be very difficult to mirror last season's success.
The Roadrunners are 0-10 against Top-25 ranked opponents since the football program began in 2011. The Longhorns hope to make that 0-11 after four quarters on Saturday.
