New Mexico has finalized their 2013 non-conference football schedule with the final addition by adding Pitt. This will be the toughest game on their upcoming schedule, and Lobos head coach Bob Davie is excited with the challenge:
"Playing the University of Pittsburgh at Heinz Field in September will be a great experience for our team," Davie said. "All of us respect the tradition of Pitt football and realize the challenge ahead of us."
This game replaces the road game to Texas A&M for next year, but that game is not cancelled but it has been pushed back to 2017. The Lobos will be paid a nice sum of $700,000 for this game which is scheduled for Sept. 14. For Pitt it will be their first season in the ACC.
Here is New Mexico's 2013 non-conference schedule:
Aug. 31 vs. Texas-San Antonio
Sept. 7 at UTEP
Sept. 14 at Pittsburgh
Oct. 5 vs. New Mexico State
The expected conference schedule for New Mexico hosts Air Force, Colorado State, Hawaii, and UNLV and travels to Fresno State, San Jose State, Utah State and Wyoming. The dates have still not been announced, but they are expected to be released in the next month or two.
