    The problem here is you have loaded up your non-conference schedule with FCS teams, and you can only count one FCS win towards bowl game eligibility. Essentially they’d have to sweep the WAC to be bowl eligible. Good luck with that Roadrunners.

      They’re not bowl eligible next year anyway, there’s a waiting period. Even if they go undefeated -no bowl. FCS opponents are a good thing since the original plan was not to go FBS till 2013 anyway. The WAC called and we accepted.

    I say they win 4 games max.

    Check the UTSA OOC schedule for 2013. Might be one of the toughest in the country.

    I think UTSA has the potential to become the next Boise State, eventually.

    UTSA is not bowl eligible until 2014 season.

    I don’t know how they’re being allowed such schedule and can still be considered FBS. Not only are 2 of those teams (Georgia St. and McNeese St.) FCS, but 2 of them (Texas A&M Commerce and NW Oklahoma St.) are Division II. I don’t even know when the last time an FBS team played a D-II team.

    They aren’t considered FBS yet, they are considered “transitional”. They have until 2014 to be full members of the FBS and the WAC
