Aggies are bowl bound

New Mexico State likely headed to bowl game for first time since 1960

Both teams also use the Aggies mascot, which the Arizona Bowl noted Sunday by changing their handle to "A (ggies) rizona Bowl" on Twitter.

USU will travel to Tucson for the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl vs New Mexico State on December 29 at 3:30 p.m. MT.

Utah State finished the regular season 6-6 after losing to Air Force 38-35. Quarterback Tyler Rodgers threw for 3,825 yards and 26 touchdowns this season and figures to throw the ball plenty against Utah State.

Though New Mexico State has reached six wins eight times since 1960, the program hasn't played in a bowl since then.

Utah State is headed for an all Aggie bowl game against New Mexico State at the Arizona Bowl. 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. Most recently, NMSU went 7-5 in 2002, but was not invited to a bowl.

New Mexico State's last bowl bid came in 1960 against Utah State in the Sun Bowl, a game won by NMSU, 20-13. Lower-tier bowl games are typically costly enterprises for schools and New Mexico State isn't in a position to absorb a financial hit. The Aggies are led by head coach Doug Martin, who is in his fifth season at the university. Florida State beat Louisiana-Monroe, and New Mexico State topped South Alabama.
