Miners to Hold Media Day, Scrimmage on Saturday
UTEP's 2005 Football Media Day will be held on Saturday (Aug. 20) at 10 a.m. in the Sun Bowl.
The event is open to the public. Fans will have a chance to meet Miner players and coaches and take photographs. The UTEP team photo will also be shot.
Fans are also invited to attend Saturday's 8 p.m. scrimmage in the Sun Bowl.
"We'll have Conference USA officials there," UTEP head coach Mike Price said. "So it will have the feel of an actual game, from the 25-second clock to coaching headsets."
Price said half of the 100-play scrimmage will be devoted to scout team work, but additionally the No. 1 offense will be pitted against the No. 1 defense in various situations (i.e. long yardage, goal line and red zone).
UTEP opens the 2005 season on Sept. 3 at New Mexico State.
