UTSA Football Keys To Victory vs UTEP

1. Avoid Game-Changing Mistakes

Mistakes and turnovers are a part of the ebb and flow of any football game. But what UTSA has exeperienced recently have been game-changing turnovers and mistakes. From a shotgun high snap in the shadow of their own endzone to interceptions deep in their own territory, these plays have become the defining moments in recent games. In order to get back on track, UTSA must avoid these types of mistakes.

2. Push Tempo

With a young QB at the helm, one would think a slower more methodical pace would be toward UTSA's advantage. But because of the type of offense UTEP runs, we could very well see possessions and opportunities at a premium. UTSA has to be careful as to not fall into a slow, grind-it-out pace. The times the Roadrunner offense has gotten going have come on quick-moving/quick-hitting plays.

3. Play With Desperation

With their backs against the wall at La Tech last week, the 'Runners tried to rally late in the game. Although the rally fell short, it was another example of how this team never quits. In fact, UTSA has a history of not quitting when they are down. Now, with a 2-5 record and post-season aspirations on the line, the entire team will need to play with that mentality of desperation in order to keep the goal of post-season play alive.
