UTSA put some points on the board just over a minute after the opening kickoff as Soza threw a 31-yard touchdown pass to Jarveon Williams. The Bulldogs went three-and-out on their next to drives before pushing all the way to the Roadrunners' 6-yard line near the midpoint of the first quarter. They were unable to capitalize on the red zone opportunity and settled for a 24-yard field goal by Kyle Fischer.

UTSA took a 14-3 advantage late in the first quarter when Soza scored on a 20- yard quarterback draw play. The Roadrunners added three more points with just under seven minutes remaining in the first half as Sean Ianno converted a 21- yard field goal attempt.
