NM State Aggie Football wants you to Make a STATEment

After 57 years and a dose of déjà vu, the New Mexico State University Aggies will take on a familiar opponent in their first bowl game appearance since 1960. A decades-old rematch against Utah State at the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl in Tucson in a couple weeks takes us back in time almost to the day on December 31, 1960, when the NM State Aggies captured a 20-13 win.

Since then, Aggie football carried on with only nine winning seasons. But despite the performance, tried and true Aggie fans remained, cheering in the stands and hoping for the day when the program would reemerge in victory.
