Stony Brook University, a small FCS school in Rochester, New York, announced yesterday that they will open the 2011 football season on September 3, 2011 at the Sun Bowl against the UTEP Miners.  The addition of Stony Brook finalizes UTEP's 2011 non-conference football schedule which will include a home game against the Mountain West's Colorado State Rams and a road game against the Big East's South Florida Bulls.  The Miners will also travel up the road to take on New Mexico State in the Sonic Battle of 1-10.

The schedule fits along with Bob Stull's stated goal of scheduling one FCS team, one BCS conference school, and one FBS but not BCS conference opponent.  Below is a chart of UTEP's scheduled opponents through 2018.  Note that the Miners still owe the Kansas Jayhawks a game in Lawrence but that game which would have been played next season was moved to accomodate the Big 12 school's new nine game conference schedule following the departure of Nebraska and Colorado to the Big 10 and Pac 10 respectively.  The Miners added a money game at South Florida next season to replace the Jayhawks.

UTEP has future road dates at Wisconsin and Texas and has home and home deals with the MWC"s New Mexico Lobos and Colorado State Rams
