New Mexico State: The Aggies are playing in their first bowl game since the 1960 Sun Bowl, when they defeated Utah State. The schools have been conference foes for 26 seasons while each were members of the Mountain West Conference, Sun Belt and Western Athletic Conference over the years.

Though New Mexico State has reached six wins eight times since 1960, the program hasn't played in a bowl since then. "Our staff has great respect for New Mexico State head coach Doug Martin and the entire team with the success they had this season", added Wells. The 2 they wanted did end up in the bowl, with NMSU and USU. In a odd and remarkable coincidence, NMSU's last bowl game appearance was also versus Utah State in the 1960 Sun Bowl. Lower-tier bowl games are typically costly enterprises for schools and New Mexico State isn't in a position to absorb a financial hit.
