The difference between UTEP Football and Basketball is a mile, so I highly doubt that.

Gonna be a close game. Not sure who wins, I hope it's UTEP.

Question? Not a hater, just wondering. Tafoya on the bench, why is he on the team? Let's get real, the kid is not Division 3 material, much less Division 1. I dont even think he was a starter when he was at El Paso High. There is much more talent in El Paso......I guess it was the "donations" Daddy gave? just saying......and I am sure many many fans are thinking the same....come on UTEP!

This is a chance to get into the top 25. The Miners have the talent to beat BYU.

Yes, go to UTEP Athletics the CSTV link is on there. The premium package givess you all the games.

BYU is tired and UTEP isn't coached by Tony Barbee anymore. Defence is the critical component tonight. Stone has to have the defensive game of his life, Polk will have help to keep the BYU defence off Culpepper and we'll need Portaltin back too. If UTEP can score inside and not foul at the other end I think UTEP WINS BY 5.

GO MINERS!

Negative. Only the home games and a select few road games are streamed on that website. I believe the home team owns the rights to the game, so UTEP would have to get permission from the home team to stream it via their arena cameras. Now I'm sure they do have cameras at BYU, but last I checked it was not going to be offered online either.

You are an idiot. Why gamble when you can invest? And especially, why gamble with your heart? I bet you are very poor with that kind of fincancial sense.

Keep telling yourself that. You only have a few hours left to believe it. BYU by double digits. Utep shoots less then 35% from the field. Tell me I'm wrong it'll...make me smile.

I'll be there in my seats behind the team, so for all of those out their who can't see it, I'll check back in after the game and give you a recap. Or I'll just tell you now...UTEP leaves a loser...just like football.

Any word on Internet links where I can access the game overseas? I would really love to watch this game, as I attended UTEP during the days of the old WAC rivalry between these two universities, so I am very familiar with the rivalry. GO MINERS!!!!!

UTEP is 27th in the nation in FG%, and are also 33rd in Assists. Look for UTEP to take advantage of each possession and try to find the best shot. BYU is a good team, no doubt about it, and it will be tough to win in Provo. I still see UTEP winning, especially now that players are buying into Floyd's system. UTEP plays very good defense our interior defense is superb and our fastbreak defense is lights out.

This will be a good barometer for the Miners to see if they belong in the top tier of college hoops this year. If UTEP sticks to CTF's gameplan, chalk up a win.

BYU fading star - you're wrong. Whoever pulls out the win will probably get it by single digits.

Go Miners!
