The Colorado St. Rams an the UTEP Miners face off for the first time since the 1998 season, the last time the Rams were members of the WAC. The next season the Rams joined their current conference, the Mountain West. The Rams hold an eight-game winning streak in this series, but with 13 years gone by since the last meeting don't hold past history against the Miners.
And soon the Rams and the Miners will be members of the same conference since Conference USA and the Mountain West announced a merger one week ago. Maybe the Rams will be able to start their dominance over the Miners again, but Saturday's game is going to be a tough one.
