Round-Up Recap: Eventually Respectable Won't be Enough, UTSA Falls to 'Zona

UTSA (1-2) 13

Arizona (3-0) 38

PASS: Soza (UTSA): 30-46, 277 Denker (ARIZ): 14-21, 158, TD

RUSH: Glasco (UTSA): 10-70, TD Carey (ARIZ): 27-128, 2 TD

REC: Freeman (UTSA): 6-57 Grant (ARIZ): 5-48, TD

When you play Arizona you better control the Denker. UTSA could not and fell to the Wildcats 38-13 in Tucson. Arizona quarterback BJ Denker accounted for two rushing quarterbacks and one passing to pace the ‘Cats.

UTSA took the opening kick off down the field and took a 3-point lead in the first but then were forced to kick the ball off to Arizona; this would prove their undoing. The Wildcats, led by Denker and running back Ka’Deem Carey, scored on an 82 yard drive, then took advantage of a UTSA interception and scored again three plays later.

Eric Soza continued to be effective despite 2 turnovers (a fumble and an interception). The Roadrunners defense played surprisingly well after the initial onslaught, but by that time the Roadrunners were playing catch up.

UTSA, after two weeks of rough scheduling gets a little break with a winnable trip to El Paso.
