UTEP head coach Sean Kugler held his first game-week press conference as the Miners get ready to face the New Mexico Lobos Saturday in the Sun Bowl. 

Kugler will be trying to lead his alma mater to new heights as UTEP begins its 2013 campaign Saturday at 6 p.m. MDT.

UTEP might have a slight advantage over the Lobos in that nobody knows how the Miners will look under Kugler, while UNM lost to UTSA, 21-13, in the Lobos' season-opener last weekend.
