a win over New Mexico and had a big game against number 25 Kansas State and should be ready to take on all of their stiffest
Conference USA opponents as the conference season gets underway. The Miners will be looking to pull of some big conference
wins and make a move up the conference standings but will need all the help they can get from their fans at Sun Bowl Stadium
to do so. Get your Miners tickets from StubHub early as tickets for the best seats never stay available long.

Miners' first home conference game. If UTEP is going to be a contender in Conference USA, winning as many home conference
games as possible is a must. On November 1st the Southern Miss Golden Eagles come to El Paso for another big conference game
that could be one of the biggest home games of the year. Two weeks later on November 15th the North Texas Mean Green take
on the UTEP Miners in yet another big game at Sun Bowl Stadium. November 29th marks the final home game of the 2014 season
for the UTEP Miners when they go up against the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders in a game that could have huge implications
on the Conference USA standings. Every die-hard Miners fan will definitely want to be in the stands for this one as it will
be the last chance to cheer on UTEP and try to give them some momentum before they head off to a bowl game.
Miners Football Team
The UTEP Miners are entering their second season in Conference USA as well as their second under
new head coach Sean Kugler. Last season did not go according to plan but much of that can probably just be chalked up to growing
pains and expectations are much higher for the Miners this season. Early on in the 2014 season UTEP has proven to have one
of the most prolific rushing attacks in all of college football. Aaron Jones has proven to be a touchdown machine and is averaging
almost seven yards per carry while Nathan Jeffrey, his partner in the backfield, has been averaging over five yards per carry.
If the Miners' passing game can catch up with its rushing game and the defense can pull off some clutch stops there could
be no stopping UTEP this season. This is an exciting time to be involved with Miners football and you will certainly want
to be there all season long to cheer UTEP on to some big wins.
UTEP Miners Football Conference
are one of the newer members of Conference USA but already have been developing rivalries within the conference. There are
thirteen universities in Conference USA for football which are divided into two divisions. The West Division contains Louisiana
Tech, Rice, UTEP, North Texas, Southern Miss, and UTSA, while the East division is made up of Middle Tennessee, Florida Atlantic,
Florida International, Old Dominion, Marshall, UAB, and Western Kentucky. The 2014 season is the first in which the conference
has been split up into two different divisions and it should be exciting to see how the conference plays out this year. There
have been several changes within the conference in recent years with the addition of new teams and the implementation of the
division system but these changes have only proven to make Conference USA more exciting and competitive.
When your favorite team storms the gridiron for an electrifying match up against a rival, you'll understand
the difference between seeing them on your fancy TV and seeing them from the stands. Once you've seen the game the way it
was meant to be seen, the TV experience suddenly feels like taking a look at the Grand Canyon on a postage stamp. Be there
for all of the hard-hitting college football action, from highlight reel runs and eye-popping catches to clutch throws that
will have you jumping out of your seat in no time. With a game loaded with players that know how to put on a show, you'll
see first-hand why the college football has become the cream of the crop in American sports. There is nothing quite like seeing
college football alongside tens of thousands of fans, and that's definitely the case when it comes to seeing the UTEP Miners.
As always, UTEP Miners tickets are always there for the taking with a little help from StubHub, the only ticketing outlet
you ever need to turn to for access to the most anticipated games on the college football calendar. Before you know it the
Miners are methodically driving down the field with the clock dwindling late in the fourth quarter, with the intensity rising
with each snap of the ball as fans eagerly anticipate the outcome. We all know you can follow the action on your smart phone
or watch from a bar down the street, but it's a completely different level of experience to be there to watch all the drama
unfold before your very eyes.
The UTEP Miners have won two conference championships, one in 1956
while playing in the Border Intercollegiate Athletic Association and the other in 2000 while playing in the Western Athletic
