After the university opened its doors in the 1970s, UTSA played its first season in intercollegiate athletics in 1981-82. Initially, the Roadrunners were NCAA Division I independent before joining Division I conferences in the Trans America Athletic Conference and later the Southland Conference.

They’ve been members of the C-USA since 2013-14.
