The Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners face a huge task in the form of the Arizona Wildcats on Saturday.
It was a case of too little, too late in the Roadrunners 56-35 defeat at Oklahoma State in week two as the Cowboys led 42-7 before UTSA threw 28 fourth quarter points on the board to get the cover and make the score more respectable. Texas-San Antonio totaled 504 yards and 31 first downs wiith most of their success coming on the right arm of Eric Soza who threw for 302 yards and three touchdowns while also throwing a pair of interceptions. Kenny Bias led 12 other receivers with 96 yards on only three catches with 19 yard and 67 yard touchdowns. The run game did produce 135 yards and over four yards per carry but was abandoned because of the scoreboard. The Cowboys simply were too much for the UTSA defense with over 500 passing yards.

Arizona comes in to this match up having a very easy time of it against a pair of inferior opponents. UNLV was thought by many to be able to stay remotely close but were never a factor with the Wildcats amassing 424 yards on the ground and averaging over six yards on 68 carries in a 58-13 rout. Four players totaled at least 67 yards with Ka'Deem Carey romping for 171 yards on 16 totes with 12 yard and 68 yard scoring runs. Zona didn't need much from ate air and that was a good thing with BJ Denker a non factor throwing the ball with 81 yards on an 8-21 performance. The defense gave up just 283 yards buy 69 yards came on a pass play and 79 on a run although thie unit did return a pair of picks for touchdowns.
This is a big spread and opens things up for the back door cover with Arizona giving up a few big plays to UNLV and the Roadrunners capable of making some plays. Much of this depends on whether the Wildcats call off the dogs early or not and I don't like to guess...
