PROVO — Unheralded UTSA arrived at LaVell Edwards Stadium Saturday afternoon as a 34.5-point underdog against No. 15 BYU.
But the Roadrunners didn’t play like it. In fact, they had their chances to spring a major upset.
For four quarters, UTSA hung with the Cougars, pushing them to the brink, as the outcome wasn’t decided until the final seconds. In the end, the Roadrunners suffered a heartbreaking 27-20 setback.
UTSA backup quarterback Lowell Narcisse and his teammates didn’t come to Provo only to play a close game with BYU. The Roadrunners, who fell 21-13 last week at UAB, were confident that they could knock off the undefeated Cougars.
