LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- Aggie fans are probably still celebrating last week's bowl win, but it's time to look to next year.

New Mexico State won its first bowl game since 1960, beating Utah State in the Arizona Bowl in overtime. In doing so, the Aggies ended the nation's longest bowl drought.

But this was their last year in the Sun Belt Conference. The Aggies will now play as an independent. Their independent schedule will have traditional games against the Lobos and Miners as well as a money game against Minnesota and two Mountain West opponents.

The Aggies will also play Liberty twice to help balance out the schedule -- one at home and one away. They also have a November date with BYU.
