New Mexico State University-Main Campus Top Questions

Tell us about the sports scene on campus.


Sports are not the strong suit at NMSU, but the students still rally and enjoy the games. Our football team is known for not being good, but we have beat our rival UNM for the last few years, which is so much fun! We actually have a very good basketball team, and they have made it to the NCAA tournament several times. Our basketball coach, Martin Menzies, is one of the coolest people I have ever met. There is nothing he won't do for his team, or our school. We love going to basketball games and watching our Aggies play on ESPN during March Madness. We almost made it to the Sweet Sixteen two years ago, and we have an excellent team again this year! We also have a rodeo team and an equestrian team, so there is a cowboy feel on our campus. We have some odd teams as well, like out NMSU Baking Team.
