Having the UNM Lobos considered in the expansion of the Big 12 Conference has given us the opportunity to showcase our Athletics Program, UNM, Albuquerque and New Mexico. This process has allowed us to reflect the pride we have in our successes and the commitment of our amazing fan base. We received very positive feedback from the Big 12, and look forward to continuing as a proud and competitive member of the Mountain West Conference in the upcoming season. Go Lobos!
