Historical Record: 32-381 in 5 years (began in 2011)
Bowl Games: 0-1
Hate Level: Very Dislike. Much feels.
What began as a mild dislike and mild outrage morphed into outright severe dislike after UNT dropped the final home game of the 2013 season to UTSA. A win would have put UNT in the conference title game (assuming a win at Tulsa) and preserved the perfect home record. Instead, on a cold day in November, UNT fans were introduced to a potential rival. Some fans (including yours truly) consider UTSA a rival squad since they meet the criteria: Regional, Played A Part in Conf Pain, Historical/Cultural Ties. An good number of both sides’ fans feel this isn’t yet at true rival. Overall, UTSA fans hold more hate for Texas State than UNT. Similarly, with the renewal of the SMU rivalry, UNT fans generally have more feelings toward the private school down the road. See George Dunham’s epic rant.

Yours Truly is from San Antonio. Upon taking a job back home, I thought it would be good times to start a UTSA blog as they were starting out their football program. As a proud San Antonian, I thought it would be cool for the city. It has been. I had hopes that one day far in the future they could be my alma mater’s rival. Lo, and behold! It has happened much sooner than anyone could have expected.
I briefly lived in a dual world where my reward for following two programs was to get beat down by the worst of both fan bases. I blame Todd Dodge.
