UTSA BEATS TX STATE IN DOUBLE OT IN I-35 THRILLER
UTSA started the Jeff Traylor era with a win and improved its perfect record against Texas State to 4-0 all-time with a 51-48 win in double overtime on a 29-yard field goal by Hunter Duplessis. Roadrunners quarterback Franks Harris, a former star at Clemens High School, started and accounted for four touchdowns, including a school record-tying three on the ground. Judson High School alum Sincere McCormick rushed for a school record 197 yards. Fellow former Rocket, Rashad Wisdom registered a career-high-tying 10 tackles and picked off a Tyler Vitt pass, returning it 81 yards for a touchdown and giving UTSA a 41-28 lead with 3:24 remaining.
Vitt, a former MacArthur Brahma, got the start after Bobcats QB Brady McBride was ruled out Saturday morning due to Covid-19 protocol. Vitt finished with 346 yards through the air on 26 of 40 passing, helping the Bobcats tally 472 yards of offense. Texas State, who tied the game with 1:16 to play in regulation on a 91-yard punt return by Jeremiah Haydel but failed to take the lead on a missed extra point, falls to 0-2.
