UTEP Miners 2016 Schedule Breakdown

Here is a look at the 2016 UTEP Miners football schedule:

9/3 New Mexico State
9/10 at Texas
9/17 Army
9/24 Southern Miss
10/1 at Louisiana Tech
10/8 FIU
10/22 at UTSA
10/29 Old Dominion
11/5 Houston Baptist
11/12 at FAU
11/19 at Rice
11/26 North Texas

Notes: The Miners get three of four at home in September, and they could win two of those against rivals New Mexico State and against Army. I see losses to Texas in Austin, and to Southern Miss.
The Miners could be in a similar situation in October, as I see potential wins over UTSA and Old Dominion, while FIU brings a huge coin flip attitude. I project a road loss to Louisiana Tech.
Every game for the Miners in November is winnable, and this could be a real home run month with potential wins over Houston Baptist,  FAU, and North Texas. I likely see a loss in the road trip to Houston to face Rice.
Overall Projected Record: 8-4
