Albuquerque does have a certain appeal for the New Mexico State University football team and its fans.
The Aggies, in town for Saturday’s annual Rio Grande Rivalry game against New Mexico, might find the Duke City even more appealing in December. Such a visit became more likely Friday when NMSU announced an agreement with ESPN Events that could allow the Aggies to play in the New Mexico Bowl.
The six-year agreement, which begins in 2020, makes NMSU eligible for selection by any of ESPN Events’ 16 affiliated bowl games. It also brightens the prospects for a bowl-eligible Aggies team landing in Albuquerque.
