The Daily Aggie :: 09/08/07

It's finally here! Gameday. Aggies vs. Lobos in the 98th meeting between the two football teams. Can the Aggies beat the Lobos for the first time since 2002? Can they win in Albuquerque for the first time since 1999? We'll find out tonight!

Before the Aggies and Lobos kick off though, the Aggie volleyballers take the court against the No. 1 team in all the land, Nebraska. The Huskers are not only No. 1 but they also have a 58 match home winning streak. Only one team out of their six opponents this season has even won a single game against them, that team was UCLA.
