UTEP releases its 2015 football schedule

UTEP has released its 2015 football schedule.

Coming off a 7-6 campaign and berth in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl, the Miners will play five home games, seven road games and have a challenging non-conference slate.

“We’re excited about our 2015 football schedule, as we look to build on the momentum generated from a winning season,” said UTEP Director of Athletics Bob Stull. “While there are only five home games, there is an opportunity for fans to see a couple more at NM State and Texas Tech, both driving distance from El Paso. The obligation to return games at Arkansas and Texas Tech gave us less flexibility in scheduling this year. The good news for our fans is that we will have seven home games in 2016 as we continue to build the program under coachSean Kugler.”

The Miners will open the season with three consecutive road games — Arkansas (Sept. 5), Texas Tech (Sept. 12) and NM State (Sept. 19) — for the first time since 1985.

The Miners will open the home schedule against Incarnate Word (Sept. 26). UTEP will also play host to C-USA foes UTSA (Oct. 3), Florida Atlantic (Oct. 24), Rice (Nov. 7) and LA Tech (Nov. 21). Both the Owls and Bulldogs played in a bowl game this past season.

UTEP was 5-1 at home last year, including 4-0 in conference play at the Sun Bowl.

Season tickets and prices will be released and go on sale for the 2015 season on Monday, Feb. 9 at 8 a.m. MT. Football season ticket renewal invoices will go out in mid-March.For more information or to purchase season tickets, please call the UTEP Season Ticket Office at (915) 747-6150.
