Who's Playing

Stephen F. Austin @ UTSA

What to Know

The Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks have had a week off and are no doubt ready to get back on the field. They will hit the road for the second straight week as they head to Alamodome at 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday. They are the clear underdogs, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one.

The Lumberjacks might have drawn first blood against the UTEP Miners two weeks ago, but it was UTEP who got the last laugh. Stephen F. Austin came up short against UTEP, falling 24-14. One thing holding Stephen F. Austin back was the mediocre play of QB Trae Self, who did not have his best game: despite one touchdown, he threw one interception with only 133 yards passing. Self's longest connection was to WR QuenTyvian Borders for 33 yards in the first quarter.

Meanwhile, it may have taken double overtime to finish the job, but the UTSA Roadrunners ultimately got the result they were hoping for last week with a 51-48 victory over the Texas State Bobcats. UTSA relied on the efforts of RB Sincere McCormick, who rushed for one TD and 197 yards on 29 carries, and QB Frank Harris, who passed for one TD and 169 yards on 31 attempts in addition to rushing for three TDs and 51 yards. McCormick's longest run was for 58 yards in the first quarter.

Special teams collected 15 points for the Roadrunners. Kicker P Hunter Duplessis delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.

UTSA's win lifted them to 1-0 while Stephen F. Austin's loss dropped them down to 0-0. The UTSA defense got after the quarterback against Texas State to the tune of five sacks, so Stephen F. Austin's offensive line better have put in some good practice this past week in preparation for the matchup.
