UTSA (2-3, 1-1 C-USA) rushed for 320 yards as a team and contained the Miners (1-4, 0-2 C-USA) offense to 280 yards of total offense on the night, as the Roadrunners sped off to a 26-16 win over UTEP on homecoming night.
Three straight losses for the Miners (1-3, 0-1 C-USA) and not a lot of answers for this young season gives UTEP a frustrating start to their season. Hosting a UTSA squad that also lost three consecutive games could be just what the Miners need to rebound.
Questionable offensive play calls along with the defense allowing too many big plays turned UTEP's Conference USA opener against Southern Miss upside down, as the Miners (1-3) left Hattiesburg, Miss. with an unfulfilling 31-13 road loss.
