The UTSA football team got a much needed bye last weekend coming off three straight losses and a 1-3 start to the season.
The Roadrunners return to action at the Alamodome on Saturday against the 4-1 Southern Miss Golden Eagles, who look to knock off a third Texas C-USA team in as many weeks.
The winning streak continued for UTSA as they defeated North Texas on Friday and UTEP on Sunday. Both matches saw UTSA take the first two sets, only to allow their opponents to rally back and take it to five sets, which UTSA ultimately won in both cases.
Outside hitter Dajana Boskovic was named Conference USA Offensive Player of the Week for the third time this season as she recorded a league-high 41 kills in the two matches last weekend.
The NCAA released the first set of RPI rankings this week, with UTSA coming in at 56th, joined by conference foes WKU (22) and Rice (80) in the top 100. All three teams are sitting on 7+ game winning streaks and undefeated in conference.
The Roadrunners have now won nine straight matches, with their last loss coming over a month ago on September 3 against Army. They travel to Huntington, WV for a match-up with 13-5 Marshall (2-1 C-USA) on Sunday as they go for ten straight.
After a promising start to the season, the Roadrunners came away with zero points from two matches this weekend. ODU dominated the match on Friday, out-shooting the Roadrunners 14-6 on the way to a 3-0 shutout.
Sunday’s match at Charlotte saw UTSA squander a 2-1 halftime lead to lose 3-2 after double overtime. UTSA now sits at the bottom of the table with 3 points, tied with Middle Tennessee, who the Roadrunners defeated in the opening match of conference play.
UTSA returns home this weekend and looks to get back on track with two in-state conference matches against 2-2 Rice on Friday and league-leading North Texas (3-0) on Sunday.

None of UTSA’s alumni were in action last week, but it sounds like we may see both Teddy Williams and Brian Price return to action in Week 5, while David Morgan II remains sidelined with a knee injury.
