I-10 Rivalry: One down, one to go

Football: Aggies 44, UTEP 35

New Mexico State University’s 44-35 rivalry victory over Texas-El Paso last weekend gives the Aggies the chance to end their season on a three-game winning streak.

The Aggies' final game will be Saturday, Nov. 30, in Lynchburg, Virginia, against Liberty.

Liberty defeated NMSU earlier this season, in a 20-13 victory Oct. 5 in Las Cruces.

NMSU enters the game with a 2-9 record, having defeated Incarnate Word and UTEP in its past two games. Liberty, now 6-5, has lost three of its last four games.

The Aggies’ victory over the Miners, their third straight in the rivalry, was fueled by running back Jason Huntley’s career best 191 yards and three touchdowns.

Quarterback Josh Adkins also had a strong game, completing 18 of 30 passes for 175 yards, and caught a seven-yard touchdown pass from wide receiver Tony Nicholson on a trick play that put the Aggies up 27-22 in the fourth quarter, a lead they wouldn’t relinquish.

Basketball: Aggies seek payback

The basketball version of the I-10 Rivalry between NMSU and UTEP renews once again as the Aggie men host the Miners Tuesday, Dec. 3, at the Pan American Center.

The 7 p.m. game will see NMSU try to avenge its Nov. 12 loss to the Miners in El Paso.

The Aggies were 2-3 on the season prior to its games in the Cayman Islands Classic tournament, which took place after the Bulletin’s press time this week.

The Miners were 4-0 prior to their Nov. 27 game.

The two teams have had one common opponent this season: the University of New Mexico.

The Miners defeated the Lobos 66-63, Nov. 19, in El Paso. The Aggies lost to the Lobos, 78-77, Nov. 21, in Las Cruces.
