Details of New Mexico State Aggies and the Ticket Luck value
After years of underperforming, things are looking up for the resilient New Mexico State Aggies. Stadiums are filling up for the I-10 and Rio Grande Rivalries as the 16 varsity teams of the New Mexico State University that comprise the Aggies look to register compelling performances. The Aggies compete at NCAA Division I level in the Western Athletic Conference. Of the sixteen teams, six are men's (football, baseball, basketball, cross country, tennis, and golf) while ten are women's (soccer, swimming and diving, track and field, softball, equestrian, volleyball, basketball, cross country, and tennis). Fans will be jostling for New Mexico State Aggies tickets to transform the arenas into cauldrons of noise in support of the teams.
Las Cruces is the location of New Mexico's only land grant university, New Mexico State University. The county seat of Dona Ana County lays in the picturesque Mesilla Valley in Rio Grande's flood plain, flanked by the Dona Ana, Robledo and Organ Mountains. The university started out in 1888, with football being the first sport kicking off proceedings with a game against interstate rivals University of New Mexico in 1894. The duo has since competed in the Rio Grande Rivalry (New Mexico leads 113-94). New Mexico State Aggies also trail in the fierce Battle of I-10 football rivalry with University of Texas at El Paso. The Aggies' famous Memorial Stadium, completed in 1977, hosts the football team. 30,343 New Mexico State Aggies Tickets holders can fill the arena, which is constructed in a novel design employing the excavated earth used in forming the lower level to support the upper level. The successful Aggies basketball and volleyball teams play at the 12,500-capacity Pan American Center. Presley Askew Field, with its bullpens, press box, and batting cages, can host 750 baseball fans. Soccer is played at the Soccer Athletic Complex.
McKinley Boston is the New Mexico State Aggies Athletics Director since 2004, having earlier had a playing career with the New York Giants. Aggies basketball employs Marvin Menzies as head coach in his third year, while DeWayne Walker would want an improvement on his 3-10 football coaching record in his debut season. Women's Volleyball has Coach Mike Jordan pulling the strings, and they complete the selection panel for the Aggies. Famous football alumni include Super Bowl veterans Roy Gerela and Leo Barker and Aggies favorites Charley Johnson and Denvis Manns. Notable basketball players include Lou Henson, three-time NBA Champion Randy Brown and twice ABA-winner John Williamson.
New Mexico State Aggies football has four Conference championships. The first two were accrued in the Border Intercollegiate Athletic Association (1938 and 1960) while the last two were part of a golden 70s run in the Missouri Valley Conference (1976 and 1978). The Aggies also enjoyed consecutive Sun Bowl wins in 1959 and 1960 under Coach Warren B. Woodson. 14 Conference Championships for the Aggies basketball team accompany a lone Final Four appearance in 1970.
