Battle of I-10

Rival Team: New Mexico State Aggies

UTEP and New Mexico State are both located along Interstate 10, which connects El Paso to Las Cruces. The proximity of these two universities has led to the establishment of a fierce rivalry on the gridiron that dates back 101 years to 1914 when the Aggies shutout UTEP 19-0. UTEP has gotten the better of New Mexico State since then having racked up 56 wins in schools’ 93 meetings.
