Gildan New Mexico Bowl Football Game December 15

The seventh annual New Mexico Bowl at Univeristy Stadium in Albuquerque December 15, 2012 will once again be the first game played in college football’s bowl season. The game will feature a team from the Mountain West Conference against a team from the Pac-12 Conference.

It has become a holiday-time tradition in New Mexico for our game to be on a Saturday during the holiday season. Kicking off the bowl season has been tremendous for the event and a chance to showcase Albuquerque and New Mexico to a national audience, to host another exciting game and for local fans to come out and enjoy a terrific event.

Last year’s Gildan New Mexico Bowl saw the Temple Owls beat the Wyoming Cowboys 37-15 in the first game of the bowl season. The inaugural New Mexico Bowl was played on December 23, 2006 when San Jose State defeated New Mexico 20-12.
