UTSA Roadrunners College Football 2021 Preview: Offense

– It wasn’t that long ago when the UTSA rating was optional. The 2018 team scored a total of 170 points, and it was like pulling your teeth to get a consistent score from the 2019 attack. Enter Jeff Traylor’s new head coach and the O started to work.

It wasn’t Alabama, but it was fantastic for this program, getting 415 yards and 28 points per game. The passing game was fine and the assault was second best in Conference USA because …

– Sincerely, McCormick had a great season. The junior tore off nearly 1,500 meters and 11 points as a workhorse with a bit of lightning. He wasn’t alone with senior Brenden Brady, who showed a flash and had the knack of relieving the captain greatly.

Everyone returns to the offensive front, which was fine in pass protection but was fantastic for the ground attack. It’s an excellent size and enough depth to rely on the allstars Ahofitu Maka in the middle and Spencer Burford and Makai Hart plus a tackle.

– Frank Harris just needs to stay healthy. The senior was second on the team with 528 rushing yards and nine touchdowns, and he hit 64% of his passes for 1,630 yards and 12 points with six picks. The knees are the problem – he’s been battered throughout his career.

Josh Adkins was from New Mexico state and got some work, and before sustaining a leg injury, 2019 starter Lowell Narcisse saw time in mid-last year after Harris and the offensive began to stutter.

The story goes on

The receivers are good enough to expand the field further. 6-1 Zakhari Franklin led the team with 694 yards and seven points despite missing a few games, 6-3 Joshua Cephus led even more size at receptions with 58 as a short-range target and 6-4 Tykee Ogle-Kellogg.

UTSA Roadrunners College Football 2021 Preview: Defense

– The defense accelerated the pass rush, was solid against the run, and only allowed 383 yards and 26 points per game. There are ten starters back to keep everything going, starting with a great safety couple.

All-Conference USA performer Rashad Wisdom led the team with 95 tackles with four picks, and Antonio Parks is a super senior who added 50 stops. The turns are experienced and manageable too – Corey Mayfield is the No. 1 guy who is great in the open.

– – The three-man front wants to bring the masses. Trumaine Bell led the team with 4.5 sacks, but £ 300 Brandon Matterson is the captain on a tackle job. The 6-2, 290-pound Jaylon Haynes is the veteran anchor on the nose – he can get into the backfield with four sacks in nine games.

– The Roadrunners have two large all-star linebackers to help clean up. The 6-3, 230-pound Trevor Harmanson finished second on the team with 73 stops and 6-3, 245-pound Jamal Lingon comes in with 72 stops.

If that wasn’t enough bulk, a 245-pound Charles Wiley is put in on the outside – he led the team with ten tackles for the loss – and Clarence Hicks is a veteran with 48 tackles on the other side.

UTSA Roadrunners College Football Preview 2021: Top Players

Best UTSA Roadrunners Offensive Player

RB Sincerely McCormick, Jr.
Breece Hall, Iowa, had an extra game and won the national rushing title. McCormick was number 2 with 1,487 yards and 11 touchdowns and 20 catches. The 5-9, 200-pounder isn’t huge, but it can pound eight times with 19 stretches or more.

The wheels are there, but he has no problem sharpening if necessary. Now he’s trying to generate a better second level burst to develop even more big chunks.

2. OT Spencer Burford, Sr.
3. C Ahofitu Maka, Sr.
4. OT Spencer Buford, Sr.
5. QB Frank Harris, Sr.

Best UTSA Roadrunners Defensive Player

S Rashad Wisdom, Jr.
The 5-10, 205-pounder entered the line-up as a newcomer and made an impression with 44 tackles and a pick six. Last year he did it all with 95 tackles with four interceptions and – for the second time in a row – one touchdown. He is an intimidating force and a great hitter. It is again a lock for the honors of the All-Conference USA.

3. DT Brandon Matterson, Sr.

5. CB Corey Mayfield, Sr.

Top Incoming UTSA Roadrunners Transfer

WR Tre’von Bradley, Jr.
When paired with Texas’s Kennedy Lewis, Bradley UTSA adds pop, size and firepower to the passing game. The former Houston Cougar scored 37 hits for 613 yards with one score in his three seasons. He wasn’t getting the ball in the right direction enough, but it averaged nearly 17 yards per catch.

UTSA Roadrunners College Football 2021 Preview: Keys To The Season

UTSA Roadrunners Biggest Key: Offense

The passing game needs to be more consistent. The barrel attack will be the main mode of transportation, but it would be nice if the Roadrunners could count on all of the parts to work week after week.

Nothing happened through the air against UAB, and then everything intensified against BYU. Frank Harris hit 79% of his throws against North Texas but only 38% of his passes earlier this year against Army.

Overall, Harris and the passing game were okay, but the team did less than 50% of their throws three times and had way too many games that didn’t include downfield games.

UTSA Roadrunners Biggest Key: Defense

Charge and stop the run further. UTSA has been a stone against the run for years, but the 2019 defense allowed more than five yards per carry and never seemed able to take control of games.

The 2020 defense battled Army and Louisiana, but both teams are outliers. The defensive front has been great at putting pressure on the backfield, there’s enough size to hold, and the roadrunners have collateral to hit.

They were 5-0 last year and 8-0 for the last two seasons when fewer than 125 rushing yards were allowed

UTSA Roadrunners key players for a successful season

DT Jaylon Haynes, Sr.
The Roadrunners need a big season outside of the quarterbacks, but it’s a deep group with lots of options. RB Sincere McCormick needs to stay healthy and a few more recipient weapons need to mount.

However, the defense mostly needs their skilled 6-2, 290 pound anchor to be the one who can handle it all. In 2019 he had 40 tackles with two sacks and 12.5 tackles against loss, but could only play nine games last year and still had four sacks. If he’s an All-Star, this could be the best D in Conference USA.

UTSA Roadrunners key game for the 2021 season

UAB, November 20th
Is UTSA Really Ready to Win the USA West Conference? The rest of the schedule isn’t all that bad, and that includes important late-season games against Southern Miss and UAB at home.

The Roadrunners lost 21-13 to the Blazers last year after dropping the game 35-3 in 2019 – those were the only two games the two have played.

UTSA Roadrunners College Football 2021 Preview: What Will Happen, Season Forecast

UTSA has flirted with being great since she got into the FBS world in 2012, but she hasn’t quite managed to get there.

That could change this year.

It was good from the start when it was a member of the WAC, but there have been a slew of wins against a slew of really mediocre teams to build the first totals.

Offense became optional for a while, great defense wasn’t enough to last a decent couple of seasons, and Jeff Traylor was the extra spark he needed when making his first appearance as head coach last season.

It is what you want in the inaugural year of a new regime – a plan.

Of course it was nice to go to a bowl game and develop a successful season, but on top of that, UTSA showed what life under Traylor is likely to be like with a great ground play, defense that can get into the backcourt, and a lot of fighting in close games.

Set the UTSA Roadrunners Regular Season Win Total to… 8

And now an invited team is returning.

UTSA has perhaps the best Conference USA player in RB Sincere McCormick, the defense is full of veterans who will be on all of the All-Star teams, and the lines are in place to hold their own against a schedule that is almost perfect is working .

There might be a few rocky spots against Illinois, Memphis and a strong WKU team on the road, but the big games against Southern Miss and UAB from the west are at home, and after winning seven games last season, those are Appropriate expectations do a little more.

That includes at least playing for the Conference USA title and maybe winning it.
