University of Texas at El Paso Sports
UTEP offers Division 1-A men and women collegiate sports. The men’s basketball team is probably the best known with a history that includes star players Nate Archibald, Tim Hardaway and Nolan Richardson and the 1966 National Championship team, immortalized in the movie “Glory Road.” Football games are played in historic Sun Bowl Stadium, nestled in the rocky hills with views of El Paso and Juarez. Boisterous crowds also attend the men and women track and field events plus women’s basketball, volleyball and soccer games. Info and tickets: 915-747-6150.
