SAN ANTONIO – The UTSA season is officially over.
The Roadrunners (6-5) finished the season with a winning record in its 11 games. It didn’t play a full 12 due to Hurricane Harvey forcing a cancellation of its first game against Houston.
Despite grabbing its sixth win against Marshall to become bowl eligible, the Roadrunners were left out of postseason play. They join two other teams, Buffalo and Western Michigan, who were eligible for bowls but will not play.
Many thought UTSA would play in either the New Mexico Bowl or Armed Forces Bowl. Instead, Marshall got a bid to go to New Mexico, while San Diego State and Army will duke it out in the latter.
It was a rough ending to the season for the Roadrunners, who fired their offensive coordinator after the last game of the year. The only consolation to this is means 2017 is the first winning season for UTSA since 2013 when it went 7-5.
