UTEP’s Andrew Meyer named to C-USA Academic Watch List

UTEP offensive lineman Andrew Meyer has been named to Conference USA’s 2021 Preseason Academic Watch List, it was announced on Friday.

One student-athlete from each of the conference’s 14 member institutions is recognized for their academic prowess ahead of the 2021 season.

Meyer is a three-time member of the C-USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll and has twice been a C-USA Commissioner’s Academic Medalist. On the field, Meyer was named All-Conference USA Honorable Mention following the 2020 season.

“Andrew has always done a great job representing our football program on and off the field,” head coach Dana Dimel said. “It is nice to see him recognized for both and I look forward to watching him compete on the field and in the classroom this upcoming season.”

In 2020, Meyer started every game on the offensive line as the Miners’ center. He helped pave the way for a UTEP rushing attack that scored 16 touchdowns and surpassed 1,000 rushing yards on the season.

Meyer led an offensive line that blocked for a rushing offense that averaged 138.9 yards per game a year ago.

The 2021 UTEP Football season opens on Saturday, Aug. 28 with the “Battle of I-10” versus NM State in Las Cruces. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. MT at Aggie Memorial Stadium.

The home opener versus Bethune-Cookman is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 4 at the Sun Bowl and will kick off at 7 p.m. MT.

The Conference USA slate opens on Saturday, Aug. 28, and the league’s 17th Conference USA Football Championship Game is scheduled for the first week in December.
