2019 Baylor Football Opponent Quick-Hitter: University of Texas - San Antonio

NCAA Football: Baylor at Texas-San Antonio Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Opponent: University of Texas - San Antonio

Nickname: The Roadrunners

Kickoff: September 7th, 3:00 PM CT

Location: McLane Stadium

Conference: Conference USA

Head coach: Frank Wilson

Last year’s record: 3-9

Notable outcomes: Lost to Baylor 37-20; lost to Kansas State 41-17; defeated Rice 20-3

Key losses: Greg Campbell Jr., WR; D.J. Gillins, QB; Josiah Tauaefa LB; Les Maruo LB

Strength: Defensive line. The Roadrunners lose only one defensive lineman, the rest are set to return and they were pretty good last season.

Weakness: The entire offense. They were horrendous last season, ranking second to last in the FBS, and are losing some of the only contributors they had. Young guys will have to step up otherwise it could be another long season.

Prediction: Baylor is just a much better team than the Roadrunners on paper. They get to play them at home with an FCS tune up game already under the belt. Baylor’s defense should be able to handle the pretty abysmal UTSA offense and the Baylor offense should get separation. The Bears should win this one by 3 or 4 touchdowns, putting them at 2-0 on the season.

35-7 Baylor
