2016 Miners Season Preview
The UTEP Miners have been one of the most consistently talented teams in C-USA over the last 5 years. But UTEP comes into 2015 with a bit of uncertainty at many of their most crucial positions. Gone is star quarterback Jameill Showers who led the team with 16 total touchdowns a season ago. The Miners will turn to Mack Leftwich to lead the program and the talented sophomore looks up to the task. Expect last season’s rushing leader for the Miners Aaron Jones to be the focal point of what should be a deadly UTEP rushing attack. The young Miners team will not have long to adjust to their new roles, traveling to Arkansas and Texas Tech in the season’s first two games. Top games on the UTEP Miners 2015 football schedule are in El Paso against Incarnate Word, UTSA, and Rice.

UTEP vs. New Mexico State
In 1914, UTEP (then Texas College of the Mines), faced off against New Mexico State (then New Mexico A&M), in it’s first ever football game. A century later this rivalry has been played almost 100 times and is known as The Battle of I-10. The matchup is one of the few in the country to have two traveling trophies, the Silver Spade, and the Mayor’s Cup. The rivalry is currently as competitive as it has been in its history with the home team winning almost 60% of the time.
UTEP vs. UTSA
Satirically known as the “New” Battle of I-10, this is one of newest matchups in all of college football. Although UTSA has only had a football program since 2011, the proximity and similar size of these two schools makes this matchup a prime target to turn into great rivalry. Both schools are members of C-USA’s West Division, and they compete for recruits, students, fans, division, and conference championships. If there was one new C-USA matchup to keep an eye on in the next decade, this might be it.
