Lobos Pass On Moving Game With Texas A&M To San Antonio

By  | 

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- New Mexico has rejected a 1.8 million dollar offer to move a September 6th home football game against Texas A&M -- to San Antonio.
Athletic director Paul Krebs says UNM declined the third-party
offer.
Krebs says administrators didn't want to deprive New Mexico fans
of seeing one of the nation's storied programs at University
Stadium.
An unidentified third party approached New Mexico at the end of
the 2006 season, just after the school had signed a home-and-home
contract with the Aggies, and offered the Lobos 1.5 million dollars
to move the game.
UNM declined, and the offer eventually increased to 1.8 million
by June 2007.
New Mexico again turned it down.
Coach Rocky Long supports the decision, saying it will help
build loyalty.
The Lobos are scheduled to travel to Texas A&M on September 5th
of 2009.
