In an agreement that began this past Saturday, Longhorn Network viewers will see additional college football games this season as the network has secured exclusive rights to televise five home football games of the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), a Division I FCS independent program.

Added to the previously announced Kansas at Texas Big 12 matchup scheduled for October 29, the agreement will bring the total number of college football matchups for the channel in 2011 to seven.

The Roadrunners are coming off their inaugural game and head coach Larry Coker’s debut with a 31-3 win against Northeastern State to take on the McMurry War Hawks at the Alamodome on Saturday.
