UTSA Announces 2021 Football Schedule

UTSA has announced the full 2021 football schedule in conjunction with Conference USA’s schedule release for this fall, as well as a 2023 road game against Tennessee. 

The Roadrunners will play eight C-USA contests beginning with a home date against Middle Tennessee on Sept. 18 at the Alamodome.

Following two weeks of non-conference action, UTSA will travel to Bowling Green, Ky., to face WKU on Oct. 9 before returning home to host Rice on Oct. 16. The Roadrunners then will close out their October calendar at Louisiana Tech on Oct. 23 in Ruston, La. 

After their only idle week of the regular season, the Roadrunners will make the bi-annual trip to El Paso to face UTEP on Nov. 6 before hosting back-to-back home contests against Southern Miss on Nov. 13 and defending C-USA West Division champion UAB on the following Saturday. 

UTSA will round out the league’s regular season schedule on the road against North Texas on Nov 27 in Denton.

C-USA’s 17th annual Championship Game, pitting the champions of the East and West Divisions, is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 4. 

The second season of the Jeff Traylor era will kick off on Sept. 4 at Illinois before UTSA hosts Lamar for the home opener on Sept. 11 at the Alamodome. The Roadrunners also travel to Memphis on Sept. 25 and host UNLV on Oct. 2 to close out the non-conference slate.

It is important to note that all games are subject to date changes and some dates are expected to move in the coming weeks in order to accommodate national television. A schedule of televised games will be released at a later date. 

UTSA completed its 2023 non-conference schedule with Wednesday’s announcement of the Tennessee matchup. The Roadrunners will face the Volunteers of the SEC for the first time on Sept. 23, 2023, in Knoxville. UTSA also is scheduled to travel to Houston on Sept. 2 and host Texas State and Army West Point on Sept. 9 and 16, respectively, in 2023. 

Additionally, the 2027 road game at UNLV in Las Vegas has been moved to Sept. 25 from its originally scheduled date of Sept. 18 of that year.

UTSA is coming off a 7-5 campaign that ended with the program’s second bowl appearance, a narrow 31-24 setback to 16th-ranked Louisiana in the SERVPRO First Responder Bowl on Dec. 26 in Dallas. Traylor guided the Roadrunners to the second-most wins in school history and to a second-place finish in Conference USA’s West Division with a 5-2 mark.
