Say what?

We now have a video game company sponsoring our bowl game.

Maybe the gamers out there have heard of them. I certainly have not. It is what it is.

Who is coming for Fresno?  Their coach and QB are already long gone.

I'd be surprised to see even 500 Fresno State fans here for the bowl game. The times they have been here before, their fanbase hasn't really turned out. Crowd will probably be 90 percent UTEP fans.

Another negative Nancy. Just be happy we have a sponsor. The bowl ain't going away.

We have a bowl game - it’s on National Tv. the opponents both have winning records and are from our region and have relevance for NM.

it would be refreshing for NM to take some pride in something other than chile

Not whining.  Just had to do some research on who PUBG was. Not a known name like Gildan that's for sure. At least we're not the Jimmy Kimmel bowl.

I hope that they put Utep's fans on the east side of the stadium for tv eye candy. they'll have a few thousand fans here and will be loud. Last time we had FSU here, they had maybe a couple hundred fans?

Haters will always hate...

They'll hate on it when it's here, they'll hate on it when it's gone. They just live to hate.

No quarterback? We could loan them one of ours.

Not sure why they do. I've been to several NM Bowl Games, over the years, and they are always well run and entertaining. I've got a buddy from Atlanta that will be in town for some work, so I got us two tickets on the 50 yard line. He's excited to check out the game and the stadium.

Truth to tell I never heard of Gildan prior to the NM Bowl.

Same. I've been to a few myself. They were very entertaining and competitive matchups. Also, it's nice to see teams (some years) that don't necessarily get to cycle their way to University Stadium.

I am excited for the game. And also PUBG being the sponsor. It is one of a few games I play on my iPad. I’ll take it.

I plan on being there with a buddy. We took advantage of the sweet deal

Well known video game that is extremely popular with anyone younger than 35.  My son walked in during the game and said, "oh shit, PUBG New Mexico Bowl???".  He watched the rest of the game with me and he hates football.

I think this is a great sponsor for younger fans...

No wonder I have never heard of PUBG before. I am 36 years old.😅

For anyone curious, PUBG stands for "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds"

That should be the official name of our stadium.

How are you gonna feel if NMSU is in the game? The way Jeffy was hard selling the Aggies this morning it sounds like he wants them in his game, bad, if they get a waiver.

If Fresno comes back it’s time to get a new game director.  Attendance has been awful at the game as of late.  We keep getting the California schools who bring absolutely nobody!  The bowl game has a legit shot at a sell out with NMSU.  Dirk idea needs to wheel and deal to get NMSU.  I don’t believe the game is sustainable at the current attendance rates.  The NM Bowl legitimately needs NMSU.

BYU does also travel well. What about NMSU taking on the cougars? That would draw pretty well I would think...🤷‍♂️

@lobobear NMSU sold 25k tickets to the Arizona Bowl.  A NM Bowl with BYU would be standing room only.

I’ll pass on the NMBowl this year if the school down south is in it. And I’ll cheer  for the other team to shred them!

I’m starting to warm up to the possibility of the las cruces goat ropers getting an invite. 

Let them fill up the stadium so that UNM can recoup some of the $$ they lost when they had to cancel the home BB game against them.

 

🐐🏈
