This morning, UTEP released the Conference USA schedule for the 2020-21 men's basketball season. The Bonus Play experiment is over after two seasons and instead, the Miners will play five home and home series against regional rivals UTSA, Rice, North Texas, LA Tech, and Southern Miss. UTEP will begin conference play at home welcoming Florida Atlantic and FIU. Their toughest road stretch will be in early February, when they play Marshall, Western Kentucky, and UTSA over a nine day period. The 2021 C-USA Tournament will once again be held March 10-13 at The Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas. The 2020 C-USA Tournament was canceled after first round games had been played on March 11th.

The non-conference schedule is still being finalized and it will be released at a later date, although 600 ESPN El Paso's Adrian Broaddus highlighted some of the big matchups in a story from May.
