NM State hopes to break even from appearance

Read Time:4 Minute, 3 Second

New Mexico State Football Coach Jerry Kill and Athletics Director Mario Moccia conduct a news conference Thursday, Dec. 1, 2022, to discuss the team's bowl eligibility.

LAS CRUCES – Bowl games are rarely money-making ventures for college football programs fortunate enough to win six games and extend their season.

New Mexico State’s 2017 Arizona Bowl game was somewhat of a perfect storm that resulted in a $130,000 profit. Not only was there a historical aspect, breaking the nation’s longest bowl drought of 57 years, but the proximity of the game to Las Cruces created a ticket sales bonanza.

This week’s trip to the Quick Lane Bowl in Detroit to cap Jerry Kill’s first season as the head football coach won’t yield that kind of return, at least in the athletic department’s bottom line. NM State plays Bowling Green in the nationally televised game Monday.
