SAN ANTONIO -- The UTSA Roadrunners lost their second straight game today in the Alamodome, losing to San Jose State 52-24.
The 28-point loss is the biggest in UTSA's two-year history.
Starting quarterback Eric Soza did not play today because of a hip injury he suffered last week in the loss to Rice. Ryan Polite filled in for Soza and threw two touchdowns in the second half.
UTSA will host Utah State in the Alamodome next Saturday at 1:00 pm.
