Aggie footballers return home to face Hawaii


FOOTBALL: New Mexico State University returns to Las Cruces after a grueling three weeks on the road that left the Aggies 0-4 on the season.

Their opponent Saturday at Aggie Memorial Stadium is Hawaii. The Rainbow Warriors are 1-3, and enter the game allowing 45.5 points per game, second worst in FBS football. Hawaii and NMSU played each other twice in 2021, after having not played since 2011. The Aggies lost 66-7 Sept. 17 to Wisconsin, their second defeat of the season to a Big Ten opponent.

VOLLEYBALL: The Aggies are 7-4 heading into a pair of home matches this week at the Pan American Center. Thursday, Sept. 22, they face UTRGV at 6 p.m., and California Baptist at 1 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 24. They’ll follow the next week with two more home matches: 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29, vs. Southern Utah and 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, vs. Utah Tech.

CROSS COUNTRY: In cross country, the Aggie women placed fifth, and the men placed seventh at the Texas Tech Open last week. Anekin Hetman and Richelle Sandin led Aggies with a pair of top-ten finishes.
