This Saturday the UTSA Roadrunners will host the Rice Owls in what is shaping up to be a good in-state rivalry. This is the second meeting between the two teams and the first at the Alamodome.

The UTSA roadrunners are looking to bounce back after a disappointing loss at the hands of Marshall University. Rice, to the surprise of many casual college football fans, have put together a pretty good squad.  They open up this game three-point favorites – but the roadrunners have the talent and experience, not to mention Larry Coker, to win this game. They also have Roadrunner Nation, super fans and sports news junkies who are experts at UTSA game analysis and having a great time.

All you have to do is tell us what you enjoy the most about UTSA football.  Is it the players, the tailgates, the atmosphere in the Alamodome or its close proximity to downtown? We want to hear from you and you want these tickets. Win-win.
