Conference USA announced Thursday its 2019 football schedule and UTSA will play eight league games, four at home and four on the road, as part of a 12-game regular season slate this fall.
The Roadrunners will kick off their ninth season of play on Saturday, Aug. 31, at the Alamodome when they face crosstown opponent UIW for the first time.
UTSA then will travel to Waco, Texas, on Sept. 7 to face Baylor for the third straight season. The Roadrunners scored their first win against a team from a Power 5 Conference with a 17-10 triumph over the Bears at McLane Stadium in 2017.
The Roadrunners will welcome another first-time foe to the Alamodome when Army West Point, which finished the 2018 season ranked 19th nationally, comes to town on Sept. 14.
UTSA will open its seventh season of C-USA play on Saturday, Sept. 21, when they travel to Denton to face North Texas. The game will mark the seventh meeting between the two teams in a series that is tied at 3-3.
After their first of two bye weeks — a first for the program since the 2014 campaign — the Roadrunners will travel to El Paso for a matchup with UTEP on Saturday, Oct. 5. UTSA has won two straight games against the Miners and leads the series, 4-2.
