The Turning Point (Houston)

The Turning Point (Houston)

UTSA's late second quarter drive, followed by a strong start to the third quarter propelled the 'Runners to victory on Saturday in Houston.

It was late in the first half, under two minutes. The UTSA Hard Hat Defense had just posted their seventh three and out. Despite the Roadrunners dominating the first half, they only held a 7-0 lead.

After a Houston punt, UTSA took over at their own 44 yard line. QB Tucker Carter then hit three straight passes to Marcellus Mack, Aaron Grubb, and Seth Grubb. The big play on that drive was the 34 yard completion to S Grubb as Carter moved out of the pocket and made an ad-lib type of a play.

One play later, RB David Glasco II rushed over the right side for the score. The drive covered 54 yards in just :53 seconds.

UTSA received the second half kickoff. What followed was a back-breaking drive by the offense. 13 plays, 60 yards, and 6:53 chewed off the clock culminating with an 11 yard touchdown run on a drawn play by RB Jarveon Williams.

Williams and Glasco shouldered the load, literally, as the duo combined to rush 11 times during this drive alone. Each of the scampers were between the tackles. It was as physical of a rushing attack as UTSA has ever deployed.

After struggling offensively for most of the game up to this point, these back to back scores all but won the game for UTSA.
