The Roadrunners ran out to a NCAA record first game crowd of 56,743 screaming fans in the Alamodome, easily breaking the record set by South Florida a few years back of 49,212.
Soza engineered three first quarter scoring drives for the Roadrunners and drew praise from head coach Larry Coker after the game.
“He was almost flawless. He executed the offense and ran the ball well,” Coker told the media after the win.
Soza passed for 237 yards, including two first period scoring strikes, and ran for another 102 yard and one TD.
Soza will lead the Roadrunners this Saturday, again in the Alamodome, against the McMurry War Hawks.
McMurry University is a Division III team and lost to Stephen F. Austin, 82-6, in the season opener.
