Roadrunners beat Zappe, Hilltoppers, 49-41, for C-USA title

SAN ANTONIO (AP) UTSA entered the season with a huge chip on its shoulder and the Roadrunners set it down Friday night to hoist the Conference USA trophy.

Sincere McCormick rushed for 204 yards and three touchdowns and the UTSA Roadrunners escaped another prolific outing by Western Kentucky quarterback Bailey Zappe to beat the Hilltoppers 49-41 and claim their first C-USA championship at the Alamodome.

"My fellas never disappoint," UTSA coach Jeff Traylor said. "They didn't disappoint tonight. We're the champs. It's freaking awesome."
