Utah State to face New Mexico State in Arizona Bowl

Utah State to play in Arizona Bowl versus New Mexico State

Held in Tucson, Ariz. on December 29 at 3:30 p.m. MST, Utah State (6-6) will face a New Mexico State (6-6) team that hasn't been to a bowl game in 57 years. Ironically, that was the last bowl game NMSU had appeared in prior to this season.

A bowl appearance by New Mexico State would be its first since 1960, when it beat Utah State in the Sun Bowl.

For a while, though, that excitement was clouded by the possibility of a financial struggle - could the university afford to go to a bowl game, should they qualify? That shouldn't be a concern for Florida State (6-6), which lost coach Jimbo Fisher but is now set to extend its record streak of bowl appearances to 36 seasons.

The two Aggie teams most recently met in 2012, during USU's past year in the WAC, with Utah State winning 41-7.

Rogers passed for 451 yards and led the late drive that earned the Aggies a 22-17 win over South Alabama on Saturday, earning the school its first bowl game in 57 years in the process.

Utah State also has a history with the Sun Belt Conference, as it was a football-only member of the league for two seasons from 2003-04.

New Mexico State's last bowl bid came in 1960 against Utah State in the Sun Bowl, a game won by NMSU, 20-13.
