NMSU would not give an exact total on how many tickets have been sold for the Aggie-UTEP game this weekend although there was this interesting tidbit.
Associated AD Steve Macy said that typically 7,000-12,000 UTEP fans purchase tickets to the game when its held at Aggie Memorial Stadium. As of Friday morning, by Ticketmaster's count, those numbers are lower.
“UTEP fans are not buying tickets,” Macy said. “Less than 500 have been bought. That's on Ticketmaster counts.”
Those numbers alone would indicate that this season will see a substantial drop in ticket sales for the game.
“Anytime I don't have a sellout I'm concerned,” Macy said. “Regardless of who we play.”
