ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – It’s now less than two weeks away from the kickoff to the UNM football season.


The Lobos open at home Sept. 2 against Abilene Christian. UNM head coach Bob Davie said he wants to throw the ball more this year, so the team has been working on their air attack in the offseason.

One of the targets getting his hands on the ball quite a bit is senior Emmanuel Harris. He only caught six passes last year, but improved in the offseason and should get a lot more catches in 2017.

“I got to lift weights, and I got to be strong and be the guy that I am on the field in the weight room,” Harris said. “I got stronger during the offseason and I got faster during the offseason, so it was an eye-opener.”


It was announced Monday that UNM’s road game at Fresno State and their home game against Utah State will be broadcast on AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain, bringing the team’s number of national or regional broadcasts this season to eight.
