UTEP, San Jose State announce future football series

The UTEP football program will play a future home-and-home series with former Western Athletic Conference foe San Jose State beginning in 2026, it was announced by the two universities on Monday.

The Miners are scheduled to play the Spartans on the road on Sept. 26, 2026 in what will mark the team’s fifth visit to San Jose all-time and first since the 2004 campaign.

San Jose State will make the return trip to El Paso a year later to battle UTEP on Sept. 25, 2027 in the Sun Bowl.

The series history between UTEP and San Jose State dates back to 1966 when the Miners knocked off the Spartans, 35-0, in El Paso. Beginning in 1996, UTEP and San Jose State met every year for the next nine seasons as Western Athletic Conference members.

The all-time series between the Miners and Spartans is knotted at 5-5 with UTEP coming out on top, 38-20, in the most recent meeting in San Jose in 2004.

UTEP Football Season Tickets are on sale now and prices have been reduced at all levels from the 2018 season. The UTEP Season Ticket Office is located at Brumbelow Building Room 109 (next to the Don Haskins Center). Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Tickets can also be purchased online or by calling (915) 747-6150.
