Jalen Rhodes had a 26-yard touchdown run, Williams scored twice inside the 6, and Dalton Sturm threw a 16-yard TD to Josh Stewart as UTSA (5-4, 4-2 Conference USA) led 28-10 at halftime.

John Urzua threw a 53-yard touchdown to Richie James to pull Middle Tennessee (6-3, 3-2) to 28-17, but Matt Guidry ran for 57 yards on the ensuing kickoff and Williams scored on a 22-yard run two plays later to stretch the Roadrunners lead to 35-17.
