ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- ESPN has announced that the University of New Mexico's Nov. 23 game against 16th-ranked Fresno State has been moved to 2 p.m. and will be broadcast live on ESPNews.
The game originally was slated for a 5 p.m. MT start, but was shifted for television considerations.
The Bulldogs, No. 16 in the latest Associated Press Poll and No. 14 in the Coaches Poll, are 9-0 on the season and 6-0 in the West Division of the Mountain West.
They have a bye week this week, while the Lobos (3-6, 1-4 Mountain Division)) prepare for their final home game of the season against Colorado State (5-5, 3-2 Mountain) on Saturday at 5 p.m. on Branch Field at University Stadium.
That game will be televised by ROOT Sports.
UNM will honor 18 Lobo football seniors on Saturday: kicker Justus Adams, tight end Andrew Aho, defensive lineman K.J. Atkins, linebacker Dallas Bollema, free safety Dante Caro, running back Kasey Carrier, center Dillon Farrell, running back Emmanuel Fatokun, nose tackle Jacori Greer, offensive tackle Darryl Johnson, tight end Mat McBain, offensive guard Calvin McDowney, linebacker David Orvick, linebacker Malcolm Proctor, linebacker Rashad Rainey, running back Demarcus Rogers, punter Ben Skaer and defensive end Fatu Ulale.
It's also Cherry Crush Night as UNM is selling "Cherry Crush" T-Shirts for $12.95, which includes a Cherry Level general admission ticket to Saturday's game.
The game also is Youth Night; fans can purchase a youth ticket (ages 2-18) for $5 in the Cherry and Turquoise sections, and UNM will recognize its 2013 Hall of Honor inductees at halftime.
