Meep meep. The Roadrunners continued to maintain their unbeaten season.
No 22 UTSA went into the fourth quarter following UAB late on Saturday, but in just over a minute, quarterback Frank Harris took 77 yards, overtaking with a 1-yard jump to close Oscar Cardenas tight with three seconds left for keep touching down to remain undefeated.

Victory certainly doesn’t come easy for a team that has largely won all of its games this season.
UAB scored a goal with 5:19 remaining in the game when running back DeWayne McBride dashed in from 16 yards to put UAB 24-17 ahead. On the next drive, the Roadrunners advanced down to the UAB’s 41-yard line, but couldn’t get the 10 yards needed to switch on 4th and 10th lines to keep this driveway alive.
But the defense appeared tight, forcing UAB to punt after a tit-for-tat third half.

Enter Harris. UTSA started the match at its own 23-yard line with 1:06 remaining. Harris didn’t finish well on the first play of the helm, but completed three straight passes of 28.6 and 33 yards to send teammates down the field. He then dashed for nine yards before an unfinished run resulted in a third and the goal.
Harris dropped a low shot to start, but was able to dive to the left to avoid any potential pressure. He saw Cardenas open up in the final area, but his pass was blocked by a UAB defender before Cardenas caught up to the clearance.
