Gildan New Mexico Bowl

The 11th Annual Gildan New Mexico Bowl will once again be played on the first day of the college football’s bowl season. The collegiate bowl game is also playing on opening day for the ninth consecutive season. As the first game on tap from 2010-2013, it provided multiple storybook endings. Last year, the Gildan New Mexico Bowl returned to the opening FBS slot, and nearly saw an astonishing come-from-behind victory from the New Mexico Lobos. The Arizona Wildcats silenced the comeback with a late field goal to make it a two-possession game, and an interception with under a minute to go, sealing the 45-37 win.

The 2016 Gildan New Mexico Bowl is scheduled to feature teams from the Mountain West Conference and Conference USA. The leagues were pitted against each other in the 2014 game when the Utah State Aggies ran to a 21-6 win over the UTEP Miners, as well as the 2010 Gildan New Mexico Bowl when the MW's BYU Cougars cruised to a 52-24 victory over the Miners.
