UTEP announced this morning that the athletic department, in conjunction with the Miner Athletic Club will be hosting their annual kickoff football luncheon on Thursday, August 25th from noon - 1pm at the El Paso Convention Center. Tables of 10 ($350) or individual tickets ($35) to each luncheon can be purchased by calling the Miner Athletic Club at (915) 747-8759 or via email at mac@utep.edu.

If you've never been to the luncheon, it is a great way to hear Coach Kugler preview his team in an informal setting, while offering some insight into what to expect from Miner players. He will also have updates from Camp Ruidoso, which lasts from August 4th through the 14th. UTEP's first game is on September 3rd when they host the NMSU Aggies in the annual Battle of I-10 at the Sun Bowl.
