Sports
UTEP will host Texas Tech in 2020 and play at Texas in 2020, 2025, 2027, 2029 and 2031, highlighting the Miners’ future football schedules.
UTEP will also face Oklahoma and Arizona on the road in 2022 and 2023 respectively.
 
“We’re excited about getting Texas Tech and Texas back on the schedule, and continuing our series with Arizona and Oklahoma,” Director of Athletics Jim Senter said. “The in-state rivalries mean a great deal to our fans. Overall, going up against some of the nation’s premier teams will benefit us tremendously as we strive to build a program that competes for and wins championships.”   
 
“All these games are very helpful in our recruiting efforts,” UTEP football head coach Dana Dimel said. “We want to sign guys with a desire to compete against the highest level of competition. Plus, the games against the Red Raiders and Longhorns will enable our Texas guys to play in their home state.”
 
The Miners will play at Texas Tech on Sept. 7 this fall.  The Red Raiders’ visit to El Paso on Sept. 5, 2020 will be their first since the 2014 season.
 
UTEP’s matchups with the Longhorns are slated for 2020 (Sept. 19), 2025 (Sept. 13), 2027 (Sept. 18), 2029 (Sept. 15) and 2031 (Sept. 13).  The Miners will square off against Oklahoma on Sept. 3, 2022, and Arizona on Sept. 16, 2023.
 
All dates of future games are subject to change.
 
UTEP opens the 2019 season on Saturday, Aug. 31 at home against Houston Baptist.
