On Sunday, the Bowl Bound UTEP Miners learned that they will be playing against the Fresno State Bulldogs in the PUBG Mobile New Mexico Bowl on December 31 at 12:15 pm.
The Miners (7-5, 4-4 Conference USA) will be trying to win a bowl game since 1967 as they will be making their 15th postseason appearance, and their first since 2014. UTEP will be appearing in the New Mexico Bowl for the third time in 12 years after facing BYU in 2010 and Utah State in 2014.
Here’s what UTEP Coach Dana Dimel had to say about being selected to play against Fresno State in the New Mexico Bowl:
Fresno State (9-3, 6-2 Mountain West) leads the all-time series with UTEP 8-3-1, although the Miners have won two of the last three matchups. In the last meeting during the 2004 season, UTEP – under the direction of first-year head coach Mike Price, topped the Bulldogs in Fresno, 24-21.
