The Arizona Wildcats knew it would be tough.
Texas-San Antonio gave the Wildcats everything they could handle and more in the Wildcats 26-23 win Thursday night at the Alamodome.
David Glasco II punched in a three-yard touchdown run with 7:32 remaining in the fourth quarter, cutting the Wildcats lead to 26-23. But the Arizona defense came up big, forcing an interception and holding off the Roadrunners to improve to 2-0 on the season.
Anu Solomon passed for 231 yards, including an 85 yard touchdown pass to Cayleb Jones on the first play from scrimmage. Jones finished with four catches for 143 yards and Nick Wilson rushed for 174 yards and a touchdown.
The Wildcats outgained UTSA 454-349 and did not turn over the football. Arizona hosts Nevada next Saturday while UTSA (1-1) travels to Oklahoma State.
