UTEP football has had an amazing season and the Battle of Texas in Conference USA is getting plenty of exposure. UTEP moved the game time on November 6th from 2 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. so the game can be broadcast on ESPN2 per KROD.

Check out some of her great Twitter interactions below and we better see Shelly at the game on November 6th. UTEP Athletics, hook the girl up with some prime tickets for her contributions to the UTEP fandom.
