  • 426 640 The New Mexico Lobos got a pre-Southern taste of the new-look Branch Field on Thursday as the Bob Davie Lobos took to University Stadium for a controlled scrimmage. 211157721 New Mexico Athletics

    426 640 Here is a close look at the FieldTurf recently laid down as "Branch Field" in University Stadium. Lobo Coach Bob Davie said the artificial turf did not feel as spongy as some turfs and had a fast feel to it. 211157723 New Mexico Athletics
    426 640 Here is a higher look at the South end zone. The field has "New Mexico" in both end zones and soon will have "Branch Field" located on each sideline. That's about the last touch "Branch Field" needs -- besides an opening game which is set for Saturday, Sept. 1 vs. Southern. 211157724 New Mexico Athletics
    426 640 "Branch Field" also includes the letter "MW" -- Mountain West. The Lobos' first-ever Mountain West game on Branch Field will be played Sept. 29 when Boise State visits. 211157725 New Mexico Athletics
  • 426 640 Branch Field is named for Turner Branch and Margaret Branch -- two former UNM graduates and local attorneys, who donated $1.5 million for the naming rights. Turner Branch said the donation was not based on ego, but was a symbol of the support UNM needs to help turn around the Lobo football program. 211157726 New Mexico Athletics
    426 640 This view from the University Stadium press box shows UNM's logo, which earned the spot at midfield. 211157727 New Mexico Athletics
    426 640 Here is a press box view of the North end zone and the completion of a play the Lobos ran during Thursday's scrimmage. The Lobos open the season Saturday, Sept. 1 against Southern. 211157728 New Mexico Athletics
