The Eagles played three games throughout this past week in the Gulf Coast Showcase and dropped all of them, bringing their overall record on the season to 2-5.
UTSA was down by two at halftime, with FGCU leading 36-34, but a 12-3 run by the Roadrunners early in the second half gave UTSA the advantage they needed to secure a win.
