San Antonio, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Eric Soza completed 17-of-20 pass attempts and accounted for a pair of touchdowns as the Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners coasted to a 30-10 victory over the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs in a Conference USA matchup at the Alamodome.

Soza passed for 271 yards and a score with only one interception for UTSA (7-5, 6-2 C-USA) as it won its fifth game in a row to conclude its first year in the conference.

UTSA put some points on the board just over a minute after the opening kickoff as Soza threw a 31-yard touchdown pass to Jarveon Williams. The Bulldogs went three-and-out on their next to drives before pushing all the way to the Roadrunners' 6-yard line near the midpoint of the first quarter. They were unable to capitalize on the red zone opportunity and settled for a 24-yard field goal by Kyle Fischer.

UTSA took a 14-3 advantage late in the first quarter when Soza scored on a 20- yard quarterback draw play. The Roadrunners added three more points with just under seven minutes remaining in the first half as Sean Ianno converted a 21- yard field goal attempt.

UTSA controlled the game after the intermission. Okotcha scored on a one-yard run at the 6:25 mark of the third stanza to register the only points in the quarter.

The Roadrunners added some insurance points as Ianno connected on field goal attempts from distances of 21 and 37 yards in the fourth quarter,
