The UTSA Roadrunners have added the Houston Baptist Huskies to their 2024 football schedule, FBSchedules.com has learned.
A copy of the game contract was obtained from the University of Texas at San Antonio via a Texas Public Information Act request.
UTSA will host Houston Baptist at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, on September 21, 2024. The Huskies will receive a $350,000 guarantee for playing the game, according to the copy of the contract.
The 2024 UTSA-Houston Baptist contest will be the first-ever meeting on the gridiron between the two schools.
Houston Baptist competes in the Southland Conference of the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). The Huskies are coming off of back-to-back 1-10 seasons and haven’t finished above .500 since starting their football program in 2013.
