UTEP head coach Rodney Terry has yet to release the Miners’ 2018-19 schedule, but Arizona head coach Sean Miller has and UTEP is on it. The Miners and Wildcats will play a non-conference game Wednesday, November 14 in Tuscon at the McKale Center.

The UTEP-Arizona rivalry dates back to 1920. The Miners and Wildcats last played in 2014, when no. 3 Arizona topped UTEP 60-55 at the Don Haskins Center. The Wildcats lead the all-time series with a record of 61-30 against the Miners.

UTEP is also scheduled to play at Marquette this season in December. Terry is expected to release the full schedule in the coming weeks.
