Third NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl will feature surging New Mexico State vs. Utah State

Utah State finished the regular season 6-6 after losing to Air Force 38-35. The Aggies could land in the Arizona Bowl.

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.

"I told my guys, I told my o-line you know lets go make history right now and it was an incredible feeling to do that", said NMSU QB, Tyler Rogers.

New Mexico State was enduring one of the worst and most brutal bowl droughts in FBS history as they had not been to one in 1960.

CSU is 1-3 over its last four games after a 4-0 start to conference play. All-time, USU is 4-7 in its 11 bowl games and this marks the first repeat opponent for Utah State in a bowl game.

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. "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.

"We are excited to prepare for a quality New Mexico State team that had an outstanding season". In a unusual and remarkable coincidence, NMSU's last bowl game appearance was also versus Utah State in the 1960 Sun Bowl.
