The Aggie softball team returns to action tonight against the UTEP Miners at the NMSU Softball Complex. The Aggies enter the game at 2-8 overall while UTEP is 7-3 on the season.

As we mentioned yesterday, the Aggies are in control of their own fate as it relates to winning the regular season title and earning the top seed in the WAC tournament next month. We'd like to clarify that should NMSU win out they will earn at least a tie (not the outright title as reported by the media). If Boise State also wins out then the Aggies and Broncos would share the regular season crown but by virtue of NMSU's season sweep of the series with Boise State, the Aggies would earn the #1 seed in the tournament with Boise State taking the #2 seed. If Boise State loses one game along the way and the Aggies win out, then the Aggies would win the title outright.
