Contain your excitement, please. Some people are still trying to sleep.
Regardless, and as you no doubt deduced from the headline, New Mexico and Tulsa have reached an agreement on a future home-and-home football series, the schools announced Friday. The Lobos will host the Golden Hurricane Sept. 12, 2015, then travel to Tulsa Sept. 23, 2017.
“Our football program has tremendous respect for Tulsa,” UNM coach Bob Davie said in a statement. “The fact that the Golden Hurricane have gone to a bowl game for three straight years shows the success they’ve had. Giving the proximity between the schools, the series should generate a great deal of fan interest.”
Tulsa owns a 4-2 lead all-time, with the last meeting coming in 2009. The last Lobo win in the mini-series was 1997.
