UTSA football makes history Saturday.
The Roadrunners take the field in their first ever college football bowl game.
“You want to go up there and you want to win it,” ESPN San Antonio’s Jason Minnix said.
This one game has huge implications for the program.
“The national attention that UTSA is getting, on ESPN’s College Gameday last week, they picked UTSA as an upset waiting to happen,” Minnix said.
The Roadrunners take on New Mexico in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl at noon Saturday on ESPN.
Meanwhile, as the UTSA Roadrunners prepare to play in their first ever Bowl Game, City Councilman Ron Nirenberg is declaring this to be Orange Friday.
He says UTSA is the City’s flagship university and he’s excited they will be playing in the New Mexico Bowl.
You can get in on the action by wearing some UTSA Roadrunner gear or anything orange.
Nirenberg says the post season appearance is incredibly important for the young football program.
“This sends the message that we are here to stay and I’m looking forward to the Roadrunners going to New Mexico and taking Division 1 football by storm.”
