Schedule[edit]

UTSA announced its 2017 football schedule on January 26, 2017. The 2017 schedule consisted of 6 home and away games in the regular season. The Roadrunners hosted CUSA foes Marshall, Rice, Southern Miss, and UAB, and traveled to FIU, Louisiana Tech, North Texas, and UTEP.[1]

The Roadrunners hosted one of the three non-conference opponents, Southern from the Southwestern Athletic Conference and traveled to Baylor from the Big 12 Conference and Texas State from the Sun Belt Conference. The Roadrunners were to also host the season opener against Houston from the American Athletic Conference but the game was cancelled due to Hurricane Harvey.

The Roadrunners ended the season with their first winning record since 2013, with one of their six wins being a 17–10 victory against Baylor, giving the school its first ever win against a Power Five team.
