UTSA Roadrunners Unveil Football Schedule for 2024, Aim for Continued Glory in Second AAC SeasonSource: X/UTSA Football

The UTSA Roadrunners are gearing up for another run at gridiron glory, as their football schedule for the 2024 season has officially been released. Following a previous season highlighted by their first bowl game win, the Roadrunners' slate features 12 regular season games, nine of which will be played deep in the heart of Texas. Fans can look forward to four contests at the Alamodome in the San Antonio area, providing ample opportunity to witness their team live in action.

The Roadrunners' schedule surfaced as a potential gust of fresh air for a team hungry for success. According to KENS5, the team looks set to return 16 starters for five years under Coach Jeff Traylor. The season will start at home against Kennesaw State on August 31st and will include a much-anticipated match against in-state rival, Texas.

The rest of the Roadrunners’ non-conference action includes a visit to San Marcos to tackle Texas State on September 7th and a duel with the Longhorns in Austin on September 14th, which marks their second encounter in the past three seasons, as reported by UTSA's official website. Moreover, the American Athletic Conference (AAC) play launches September 28th at East Carolina, with the team intent on securing another victory after last season's triumph at the Alamodome.

Commissioner Mike Aresco of the American Athletic Conference has outlined a 111-game football schedule, and it's clear the Roadrunners are set to face a host of formidable opponents in their second AAC season. Among the heated contests, the Roadrunners are set to welcome Florida Atlantic on October 19th for their AAC home opener, after stampeding past the Owls last year in Boca Raton, as indicated by KENS5. UTSA is also slated to close the regular season with a tough battle against the Army in West Point on November 30th.

Adding to the excitement, the 10th American Athletic Conference Football Championship game is scheduled for December 6th and will be televised on either ABC or ESPN in prime time, heightening the stakes for all involved teams. The Roadrunners' performance in this upcoming season could pave the way for a coveted spot in the expanded 12-team College Football Playoff field, a prospect that has the fan base buzzing with anticipation for what's shaping up to be a thrill-filled 2024.
