"Our C-USA schedule is loaded with quality football teams who are led by outstanding head coaches," Dimel said in the official press release. "Just look at the number of Conference USA teams that are on the rise. It’s exciting to have North Texas, UAB, Middle Tennessee and Southern Miss coming to the Sun Bowl. This is a tremendous schedule for our fans. We have two home games each month. I really think our fans will enjoy watching our team compete from start to finish, whether we’re hosting Northern Arizona in the season-opener, playing in Knoxville against Tennessee, or battling down the stretch in November against an exciting C-USA slate that ends with Southern Miss in the Sun Bowl."

The C-USA championship game is scheduled for Saturday, December 1st. On Thursday, February 15th, UTEP season tickets can be purchased or renewed online at www.utepathletics.com.
