Four years after it's last bowl appearance, the UTEP Miners are going back to the Gildan New Mexico Bowl. The Miners (7-5, 5-3 C-USA) will face Utah State (9-4, 6-2 Mountain West) on Saturday, Dec. 20 at 12:20 p.m. at University Stadium in Albuquerque.
Parking for UTEP games has just gotten a lot tougher. Because of last weekend's massive brawl that erupted in the parking lot of the Life Care Center on Mesa, the parking lot is now closed during game days. No parking. No tailgating.
This past Saturday I was honored to escort Hunter James Garcia to the Utep/SMU game so that he could receive the game ball. Hunter was chosen to get the game ball from a list of nominees and as you can see he deserved it.
