Despite Low Attendance, UTEP’s Kugler Is Happy With Miner Fans [VIDEO]
All of the local sports talk on Team 600 this week has been on the low attendance figures UTEP has been attracting to the Sun Bowl. I took this picture at the Sun Bowl just six minutes before kickoff last Saturday for the UTEP/S.Miss game.
Despite the small crowd at the game, UTEP head coach Sean Kugler is still happy with the Miner fans that are coming to watch his team play.
On Saturday, the Miners will travel to Bowling Green for a huge conference road game against Western Kentucky. Despite having a better record, UTEP (5-3) is a seven point underdog against a Hilltoppers (3-5) team that is averaging 55 points and 600 yards of offense in their three home games. Kugler knows this game will be a major test for his team.
Have you ever wondered why Sean Kugler wears a dryfit workout t-shirt on the sidelines at every UTEP game? This question has puzzled me for weeks, so I decided to ask the UTEP head coach about his game day wardrobe.
