After Five Straight in Vegas, BYU Ready for New Mexico
The past five seasons have been very successful for BYU earning them consecutive trips to the Las Vegas Bowl, going 3-2 over that span. However Cougar players admit, while having a down year and barely making a bowl was not the plan, they are looking forward to a change of scenery.
"We got really comfortable with the Vegas Bowl, a home away from home. But going to New Mexico, it's a place that we play in our conference so we've been there before," said BYU linebacker Brandon Ogletree. "It's not too unfamiliar but at the same time it will be a unique experience."
UTEP on the other hand is just glad to be enjoying a post season, their first since 2005.
Kickoff at University Stadium is at Noon, December 18.
