UTEP is asking fans to stay in El Paso for Labor Day weekend and watch their hometown Miners take on Arkansas-Pine Bluff in the Sun Bowl. The first game of the 2010 season is this Saturday (Sept. 4) at 7:05 p.m.
“Staycation Weekend” is the theme for the Miners’ 93rd season opener, and as usual there will be plenty of giveaways and in-game promotions for the fans.
Purchase a game program for your chance to win a trip to Las Vegas! The lucky winner will be announced during Saturday’s game.
Another lucky fan will be chosen to kick a field goal for the opportunity to win a 64” flat screen TV from Pat Goffs.
In addition, schedule key tags will be presented to the first 7,500 fans, and Adidas UTEP t-shirts will be given away to the first 3,000 fans.
Kids can help celebrate Paydirt Pete’s 30th Birthday in the Southwest Dairy Farmers Fun Zone and get their picture taken with the Miners’ venerable mascot.
