UTEP football season is less than 40 days away and fans are already preparing for the season's kick-off with some amazing fan-made apparel.

Anthony Tuialuuluu, the father of UTEP offensive lineman and Del Valle graduate Tristen Tuialuuluu, is taking pre-orders for these custom-made "Miner Mafia shirts." Fans have a chance to choose between orange and white colors. These shirts come in short sleeve ($35) and long sleeve ($40), with sizes for adults and youth sizes.

The "Miner Mafia" is a group of UTEP fans that throw a huge tailgate before each home game. They also try to make as many road games for the squad as possible. They have made these custom shirts year after year. The shirt above, which is made of dri-fit material, was customizable for Anthony with his son's jersey number. For more information on the shirts, visit the Miner Mafia Facebook group or connect with Anthony via Cash App at $AnthonyTuialuuluu.

If you're a UTEP fan, what do you think of these custom-made shirts? I'm a big fan of the intricate design and the combination of the three colors. Knowing they're lightweight, these seem like perfect gameday shirts.

Speaking of new Miner swag, I loved the official collaboration between the university and the El Paso Chihuahuas for a student-alumni night. The featured hat that will be on sale for that date combines the iconic "EP star" hat from the Chihuahuas with the Miner orange for a nice twist. This is one that fans won't want to miss on Aug. 31.
