The New Mexico Bowl, just as it did last year, has a hometown team this season. The UNM Lobos will play on Saturday in their own stadium, effectively hosting UT San Antonio as both teams cap their season. The Lobos fell short by a touchdown in last year’s game against Arizona, and this will be their fourth time acting as de facto hosts. UTSA is the official home team, however.

The game should be a pretty big deal for UTSA. The Roadrunners have never been eligible for a bowl before, starting up as a program in 2011 and playing at the FBS level since 2012. They’ve won enough games before, but this is the first time they’ve qualified while eligible after reclassifying to FBS. It’s a substantial milestone for the program and its head coach, longtime LSU assistant Frank Wilson.

Bowl season begins with the 2016 iteration of the New Mexico Bowl, which features upstart programs in the New Mexico Lobos and the Texas San Antonio Roadrunners.

The 2016 Gildan New Mexico Bowl takes place Saturday, Dec. 17 at University Stadium in Albuquerque, New Mexico. New Mexico (8-4) meets Texas-San Antonio (6-6) in the game. ESPN will televise the action beginning at 1 p.m. Central (2 p.m. Eastern).
