Despite losing to Florida Atlantic this past weekend and suffering their first conference loss, the home game versus the University of Texas at San Antonio this Saturday, November 6, is still a big deal for the UTEP football program.

Not only are the Miners still in contention for the conference championship, but the game against the unbeaten Roadrunners is going to be televised on ESPN2.
