UTSA played San Diego State, which at the time ranked 24th, in the Frisco Bowl in 2021 when the Aztecs won.

Marshall, a Sun Belt team, enters the game with a .500 record.

The Roadrunners wanted a bowl game in Texas, and they got it.

“More than anything, I’m just excited about how close it is to San Antonio because I know how our crowd travels,” said UTSA head coach Jeff Traylor. “What a great job they did getting to Tulane and giving us great support. They’ve done it all year. Tennessee, they were there. It doesn’t matter where we go -- those guys show up. I know the last time we were in Frisco, our crowd was incredible. I’m sure it will be even better this time around.”

This will be UTSA’s fourth straight bowl appearance.
