UTSA quarterback Cordale Grundy threw for a pair of touchdowns and ran for another to lead the Roadrunners to a 30-21 victory over UTEP in the Conference USA opener for both teams on Saturday night at the Alamodome.

Grundy completed 20-of-35 passes for 187 yards and two scores and the junior quarterback rushed for 44 yards and a score to help the Roadrunners improve to 2-3 on the year and 1-0 in league play. It also marked the first time the home team won in the series, which UTSA now leads, 4-3. 

Greg Campbell Jr. hauled in four passes for a game-high 61 yards, while Kirk Johnson Jr. and Jalen Rhodes also had four receptions each.

The Roadrunners will travel to Houston to face Rice (1-4, 0-1) next Saturday, Oct. 6. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. at Rice Stadium.
