Ice Miners Hang Tough in Conference Play; Host UNM Lobos this Weekend
After a successful road trip, the Miner Hockey Teams look to continue their winning ways as they take on the always-tough University of New Mexico Lobos this weekend.
Splitting a series with the Texas A&M Aggies, then bouncing back to sweep the Texas State Bobcats last week, Head Coach Tom Herman and the Ice Miners are glad to be back home.

Southern Division, UTEP will host the Lobos as part of the Annual Stick it to Cancer weekend, October 20 and 21.
“We’re looking forward to renewing the rivalry,” said Coach Herman. “Plus, it’s a weekend of bringing awareness to a cause too many people have been affected by.”
