Lobos get bowl bid in Las Vegas

The UNM Lobo football team has accepted an invitation to play in the SEGA Sports Las Vegas Bowl on Dec. 25 at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Nev.

UNM will make just its second bowl appearance in the past 41 years and first under fifth-year head coach Rocky Long.

As the second place team in the Mountain West Conference, New Mexico (7-6, 5-2 MWC) will face the fifth selection out of the Pac-10 conference, which will be announced at a later date. The game is scheduled to kickoff at 1:30 p.m. (PST) on Christmas Day and will be televised live on ESPN.

“We are committed to bringing a large contingent of cherry-and-silver-clad New Mexico fans to one of most exciting cities in the world. The Lobo faithful will invade Las Vegas to have a wonderful time and watch a great football game against a Pac-10 opponent,” said UNM Athletic Director Rudy Davalos.

Several packages have been created for individuals wanting to attend the game. For more information call 925-5014.
