Following a 41-7 road win over Rice on Saturday, UTSA has entered the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll at No. 25.
The Roadrunners received 70 points in this week’s coaches poll to move into the national rankings for the first time since Dec. 5, 2021. Last year, UTSA rose to as high as No. 16 in the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll on Nov. 7 and 15th for three weeks in a row in the Associated Press Top 25 last November.
UTSA totaled 85 votes in this week’s AP Top 25 and is the first team listed as receiving votes outside the rankings, just ahead of South Carolina (44).
