2017 UTEP Miners Football Schedule Realistic Best Case Scenario
After getting drilled by Oklahoma, the Miners managed to beat Rice in the Conference USA opener, and they fight hard at home in a loss to Arizona. Wins on the road against New Mexico State and Army lead to a 3-2 start, and the tone will be set before a brutish October. They win one of the three games against WKU, at Southern Miss and UTSA, and they split the road dates against Middle Tennessee and North Texas. A bowl game is ensured with a win at UAB late.
2017 UTEP Miners Football Schedule Realistic Worst Case Scenario
UTEP starts out 0-for-September, losing at home against Rice and on the road against New Mexico State and Army, leading to a likely coaching change. It doesn’t get any better with three losses in October, and a loss at Middle Tennessee to open up November. The Miners will be good enough to win at least two games no matter what, but going 3-9 won’t matter – there will be a new era starting in El Paso next year if that happens.
