UTEP finishes season with 39-7 loss to Southern Miss


The UTEP football team closed out its 2018 season with a 39-7 loss to Southern Miss Saturday afternoon.

The Miners tell to 1-11 on the year, with their sole victory over Rice on November 3

Southern Miss went up 16-0 in the first quarter, and led the Miners 16-3 at the half. 

UTEP receiver Erik Brown scored the team’s only touchdown of the game in the fourth quarter.

Despite the loss, Head Coach Dana Dimel says the Miners are still in a better position moving forward compared to this time last year.

“Obviously, it’s a development process for us. We had our ups and downs this year,” Dimel said. “We showed some stretches where we played really good football.  Even when we were beat up and battered, we played some really good football.”
