NMSU Aggies celebrate homecoming despite game postponement

LAS CRUCES, New Mexico -- While New Mexico State University's Homecoming football game has been postponed due to the death of San Jose State University freshman running back Camdan McWright, Aggies fans still celebrated with other Homecoming events Saturday.

"I think it's been bittersweet throughout the entire day. We started the day off with our Homecoming parade down University Avenue. We saw a lot of people come out for that. There was a moment of silence," said NMSU Associate Vice President for Marketing and Communications Justin Bannister, "So it is bittersweet recognizing what happened earlier this week but also taking the time to enjoy each other's company."

According to the institution's official Twitter page, the events planned the NMSU Alumni Association and Associated Students of New Mexico State University included the University's Homecoming parade and tailgate activities.

A program featuring the NMSU Pride Band, recognitions of NMSU's Distinguished Alumni and the NMSU Homecoming Court also took place at Aggie Memorial Stadium. After, the Aggie Football team met with fans on the field.
