Arizona State schedules football series with New Mexico

Arizona State and New Mexico have scheduled a home-and-home football series that will be played in 2014 and 2015.

The 2014 game will be Sept. 13 in University Stadium in Albuquerque. The 2015 game will be Sept. 5 in Sun Devil Stadium.

“This is a series that we have been working on for quite some time,” ASU athletic director Lisa Love said in a statement. “It is important for us to schedule home/home series with schools that are located in the Western portion of the country. Our fans can travel to watch the Sun Devils play in Albuquerque with a manageable drive or a short flight. The University of New Mexico is a very nice addition to our future schedules, which already include Notre Dame, LSU, Wisconsin, Colorado, Missouri and Illinois.”

ASU and New Mexico have met 28 times, with the Sun Devils holding a 22-5-1 advantage in the series, including a 12-1-1 record at home. ASU has won 17 straight in the series, which dates back to 1932. New Mexico’s last win was in 1942, 35-7, in Albuquerque.

The two schools have not met since 1977, but they did every year between 1965 and 1977, when both were members of the Western Athletic Conference.

The addition of the New Mexico series completes the schedules in 2014 and 2015.
