Lobos, Aggies brace for Thursday soccer showdown

LAS CRUCES — Rivals New Mexico (4-2) and host New Mexico State (4-3) play for the 10th time in women’s soccer Thursday at 7 p.m. at the NM State Soccer Athletics Complex. Tickets are $7 for adults; kids 12-under are admitted free.

The Lobos are 8-1 all time vs. the Aggies and have outscored them 16-2 over that span. NMSU’s lone win, 1-0, came in 2017.
