The Roadrunners struggled on the road against Old Dominion Saturday afternoon, leaving UTSA with more questions than answers. UTSA drops to 1-3 overall and 0-1 in CUSA. The Roadrunners get a bye week before hosting Southern Miss.
A few thoughts:
- The quarterback position at UTSA is became a black hole on Saturday. Dalton Sturm struggled with turnovers and inefficiency and eventually gave way to Jared Johnson. Johnson wasn't much better, though he was on the field as UTSA mounted something approaching a comeback. The bye week is much needed to sort things out.
- The offensive line had its best game rushing the football for UTSA. Jarveon Williams had by far his best rushing day of the season with 93 yards on 21 carries. Jalen Rhodes added 68 yards on just 12 totes. The Roadrunners first scoring drive was an 81 yard, 13 play, all rush, thing of beauty.
- ODU's David Washington was a prototypical dual threat quarterback for the Monarchs, throwing for 207 yards and two scores and adding 69 yards and a score on the ground.
- Yanis Routsas did a great job punting and at least flipping field position for the Roadrunners. He averaged 45 yards on the night with a 60 yarder to boot.
