The Aggie football team reports for camp today and the first practice begins on Thursday at 8:30 a.m. The Aggies are expecting to make it to a bowl game this season. We think the Aggies will win between seven and nine games this season including a sweep of rivals UNM and UTEP which is something they haven't done since the 2002 season. We'll have more on which games we think the Aggies have the best chance to win as the season draws closer. And if you haven't purchased or renewed your season tickets you can do so by visiting NMSUGameday.com or calling the NMSU Ticket office at (575) 646-1420.
