UTEP begins conference play this afternoon, and first up for the Miners is a road game against East Carolina University. The Pirates are one of the early favorites to win the league’s Eastern Division, so it should be another exciting, hard-fought game for the Miners. And thanks to our local CW channel, we'll be able to watch all the action from the comfort of our living rooms.

The game will be broadcast on the El Paso-Las Cruces CW beginning at 5 p.m. Saturday on Time Warner Cable Channel 13; Comcast Cable Channel 14; DirecTV Channel 8; Dish Channel 17 and over the air on Channel 7.2

After back-to-back away games, UTEP return home to host SMU at 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 6. Hopefully, with another "W". Picks up! Go Miners!
