UTEP gets ready to host UTSA Bret Bloomquist, Wochit

The UTEP football team finds itself in the most unfamiliar of situations Saturday against UTSA.

For the first time since 2016, a stretch where they have won two of 28 games, the Miners are favored to beat an FBS team, and one from their own conference at that.

Do it on Homecoming night, the Miners will be 1-1 in Conference USA for the first time since the bowl season of 2014 and take real hope into their second bye week and the rest of the season.
