UTEP football: November home game with Rice moved to Friday night

Friday night lights versus Rice on November 6th, 2015.

UTEP's early November home game with Rice has been moved to Friday night November 6th according to a release from the Conference USA league office.

The move was made to accommodate national television which the networks and kick off time will be announced at a later date.

This marks the second straight year UTEP and Rice meet on a Friday night, and it also marks the first time in the Sean Kugler era that Rice visits El Paso after two straight tilts in Houston. 

The move was a part of nine games across the conference changing their dates to weekdays for national TV purposes.

A trio of C-USA teams will open the 2015 season on Thursday September 3rd.

The Miners will hold their spring game on April 10th at 7:00 p.m. in the Sun Bowl, admission is free!
