With rumors swirling of head coach Seth Littrell’s potential departure, this game could be his last with the UNT organization. In his first 3 years of coaching he has proven himself to be integral to the organization, as UNT has a 23-16 record in that time-span.

The Utah State Aggies are first in the Mountain West Conference at 10-2, only losing their first and last games of the regular season.

UNT has a record of 3-4 against Utah State all-time, and a 2-6 record all-time in bowl games. UNT has not won a bowl game since 2013. UNT has not played Utah State since 2004.

The New Mexico bowl game will be held on Saturday, Dec. 15, 2018 at Dreamstyle Stadium in Albuquerque, NM at 3 pm CT.
