Miners to kick off 2021 season via ‘The Battle of I-10’ vs NMSU

The Miners will renew their long-standing rivalry against NM State in the season opener for the 2021.

UTEP and NMSU will continue the Battle of I-10 at 7:30 p.m. MT in Aggie Memorial Stadium, on Saturday, August28

“We’re excited to resume our rivalry with NM State after not playing the Aggies last season,” UTEP Head Coach Dana Dimel said. “It’s fitting that we open the 2021 season against the Aggies and we hope Miner Nation makes the trip to Las Cruces. We want to see a lot of Blue and Orange in the stands that night!”

The contest will be streamed live on FloSports Football, and can be heard on 600 ESPN El Paso with “The Voice of the Miners” Jon Teicher calling the action and Mike Perez providing color analysis.

The contest will mark the 98th meeting in the Battle of I-10 with the Miners leading the all-time series, 57-38-2, over the Aggies. UTEP last faced NM State on November 23, 2019 in Las Cruces.
