UTEP head football coach Mike Price discusses the disheartening loss to No. 25 Southern Miss. The Golden Eagles took advantage of some key Miner miscues in the fourth quarter to run away from UTEP, improving to 7-1.
Last night, I was enjoying UTEP's fourth win of the season, a convincing 31-17 win over Colorado State. All of a sudden, I looked up into the stands at the Sun Bowl, and I saw tens of thousands of empty seats.
The Miners gave their fans the type of performance they have been begging for yesterday afternoon in New Orleans. They dominated both sides of the ball, thoroughly destroyed their C-USA opponent, and ended a 12-game conference road losing streak against Tulane.
When Houston and UTEP meet every year you never know what to expect. This trend continued as the 2 teams met for a rare Thursday night game at the Sun Bowl. Houston won the game 49-42 in front of a rather thin crowd of 24,111. It's a shame that more people didn't show up becasue they missed remarkable offensive performances by both squads as they combined for 1,248 total yards.
At this point in the season Miner fans are growing tired of hearing about moral victories and close calls. With that in mind I'm going to tell the fans what they want to hear. The Miners should have defeated Houston at the Sun Bowl.
