UTSA Game Balls for UTSA’s 31-17 Win vs North Texas

Presented by Pat Clynes and The Fritz Kennel


Remember when there was a quarterback controversy? That seems like forever ago. Dalton Sturm has performed admirably these last few weeks for UTSA. So much so that we haven’t heard or seen from backup Jared Johnson in what feels like months. Sturm had another efficient effort vs North Texas. He was 10 for 19 for 142 yards and a touchdown. But what the stats don’t show is that there were no turnovers and very few mistakes. His ability to escape pocket pressure with his run-game also helped the offense. For his exceptional individual perform, Dalton Sturm earns our offensive game ball.

Defensive Tackle King Newton had his best game as a Roadrunner. The redshirt freshman didn’t start like he did last week but when came off the bench with a vengeance. Newton recorded seven total tackles (one shy of the team high). He also had two very big plays: a fourth quarter sack and a second quarter forced fumble that UTSA would recover. Both plays helped stymie potential North Texas scoring drives. For his exceptional individual performance, King Newton earns our defensive game ball.
