The UTEP football team will kick off their 100th season against no. 7 Oklahoma on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. in Norman.
The Miners will meet the Sooners for the first time since 2012. They are coming off a four-win 2016 campaign, while the Sooners won the 2016 Big 12 Championship and defeated Auburn, 35-19, in the Sugar Bowl to finish 11-2 last season. On the roster for UTEP is All-American offensive lineman senior Will Hernandez senior linebacker Alvin Jones, an All-Conference USA performer in 2016. Both of whom were also selected to the 2017 Preseason All-Conference USA team.
The game will be televised live on KFOX-TV.
