“Fiesta Night” will mark the 90th meeting between UTEP and New Mexico State on Saturday (Sept. 15) in the Sun Bowl, and fans can have a fiesta of their own in the UTEP Gameday Zone!
El Paso and Las Cruces Mexican restaurants are invited to participate in a contest to determine who has the best chips and salsa in the Borderland. Fans can enjoy free samples in the Gameday Zone beginning at 4 pm, then vote for their favorites! The winning restaurant’s name and logo will be displayed on the video board at halftime of the Miner and Aggie game. Kickoff is set for 6 pm.
Local establishments already confirmed to participate include Casita Linda, Delicious Mexican Eatery, L and J Café, Leo’s, Little Diner, Salsa Sandoval and Vista Supermarkets.
Restaurants wishing to participate in the contest should contact Daniel Veale in the UTEP Marketing Department by phone (747-6782) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org ).
There will be live music in the Gameday Zone beginning at 3 pm with DJ Johnny Kage and Radio La Chusma.
Sept. 13-15 is also Parents Weekend at UTEP. The UTEP Parents Association is a membership-based organization founded in the fall of 2007 that works to unite Miner parents and guardians, connect them to the University through a variety of activities, and engage them as future parent leaders.
