NMSU Considering Football Conference Options Following Sun Belt Decision

New Mexico State University has received word that the Sun Belt Conference presidents and chancellors have decided to remain a 10-football team conference, beginning with the 2018 season. The NMSU Aggie football team will play football in the Sun Belt conference for the next two seasons but will need to consider options for the 2018 season and beyond.

“We’re disappointed with this outcome, but we respect the decision of the Sun Belt Conference,” said NMSU President Garrey Carruthers. “We appreciate being able to play football in the Sun Belt Conference for the past two years and look forward to continuing in the league for the next two years.”

NMSU remains a member of the Western Athletic Conference for its non-football sports. The university is currently evaluating all potential options in regard to football conference affiliation.

“It appears that the landscape of conference affiliation could see significant movement, especially as current television contracts are renegotiated,” Carruthers said.

NMSU was a full member of the Sun Belt from 2000-2005. It joined the Western Athletic Conference in 2005. In 2014, NMSU rejoined the Sun Belt as a football-only member.
