A press conference has been called for Friday to announce the bowl selection for the UTEP football team. Sources close to the team say it is highly likely that the Miners will be headed to Albuquerque to face former WAC rival BYU in the New Mexico Bowl. Arrangements have been made to inform boosters and alumni of the selection.
However the New Mexico Bowl commisioner said Thursday that there is still a possibility another school, most likely Fresno State, could fill the vacant bowl slot.
Other possibilities for UTEP are the New Orleans Bowl and the TicketCity Bowl in Dallas.
