UTSA Roadrunners 2016 Schedule Breakdown

We conclude our Conference USA schedule preview series for 2016 with UTSA:

9/3 Alabama State
9/10 at Colorado State
9/17 Arizona State
9/24 at Old Dominion
10/8 Southern Miss
10/15 at Rice
10/22 UTEP
10/29 North Texas
11/5 at Middle Tennessee
11/12 at Louisiana Tech
11/19 at Texas A&M
11/26 Charlotte

Notes: For the first time in program history, the Roadrunners have a new head coach in Frank Wilson. The hiring got severely mixed grades early, so anything is possible in 2016. One thing is for certain, and that is the schedule was not built for success in the non con portion.
September opens with a win against Alabama State, but then follows with losses to Colorado State on the road, and to Arizona State at home. The Old Dominion game is on the road, so I would go slight edge ODU just on the locale.
October opens up brutally with likely losses to Southern Miss, Rice, and UTEP, but a win is within range in the final game of the month with North Texas.
November is another meat grinder (shoot the schedule maker, not me). The Birds play 3 straight on the road, and will be decent sized dogs in all three against Middle Tennessee, Louisiana Tech, and Texas A&M. Charlotte brings some relief in the season finale, and a chance for a win to end on a high note.
Overall Projected Record: 3-9
