The COVID-19 pandemic has taken its toll on the nation's sports world. Well, Roadrunner fans get ready to relive some fond memories from the gridiron beginning on Saturday.
The CW 35, in partnership with Roadrunner Sports Properties, will rebroadcast three UTSA football games on each of the next three Saturdays.
The first rebroadcast will feature the 2016 Conference USA match-up between the Roadrunners, sporting all-black uniforms for the first time in program history, and the Mean Green. Jalen Rhodes and Jarveon Williams rushed for 74 yards apiece, while the defense forced four turnovers — two fumbles and a pair of interceptions — in the 31-17 win.
The re-air on May 2 will showcase the 31-14 victory over the Miners in El Paso. UTSA used a ball-control offense that tallied 393 yards and held possession for more than 34 minutes, while interceptions by Nate Gaines and Devron Davis — which he returned 22 yards for a TD — helped the defense limit UTEP to 243 total yards.
The third telecast on May 9 will look back at the 9-7 conference victory against Marshall in the 2017 home finale, one day after UTSA Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Lisa Campos was introduced. The Roadrunners rode the right foot of place-kicker Jared Sackett — who made three field goals, including the game winner with two seconds left — and saw the defense limit the Thundering Herd to 229 yards of offense.
All games begin at 1 p.m. on the CW 35.
