UTEP Miners vs Texas Longhorns 09/09/2020 – UTEP Miners will be on their way to Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium/Jamail Field in Austin, Texas to play against Texas Longhorns. The Miners will be playing their second game of the season after they defeated Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks in their opening game. Texas Longhorns will try to make the best of this season, especially after they settled with a 5-4 record in the Big 12 last year. The Longhorns will take advantage of this situation considering how the Miners sat at the bottom of their conference play last season. The top betting websites have predicted a winner for this game as these teams battle to build on their overall record.
UTEP Miners were not recognized for their performance last year when they held a 0-8 record in the C-USA West Conference. Overall, the Miners won just a single game on the season and they were forced to settle with a final record of 1-11. Gavin Hardison did his best from the quarterback spot against the Lumberjacks as he covered 212 throwing yards with 17 touchdowns. Jacob Cowing touched 116 yards for his team while Freshman Deion Hankins had 17 carries with two touchdowns in 113 yards.

The star player held the eighth rank in passing yards and drew for the second spot in passing touchdowns. When it comes to rushing, Elingher covered 1,145 yards with 23 touchdowns.
