NM State, who is coming off a 35-win season, a Western Athletic Conference regular-season co-championship and a trip to the NCAA Tournament, will play a total of 51 regular-season games, including 26 chances for Aggie fans to see their team at Presley Askew Field.
“The 2013 schedule is another challenging one for us,” Ward said. “We will play a 27-game conference schedule for the first time in several years, but we still have some quality non-conference opponents as well.”
The Aggies will play five teams that made the NCAA Tournament last season, including two teams that won a regional at the tournament and were part of the final 16-team field, two teams that will be part of the WAC this season and in-state rival New Mexico. Five of NM State’s opponents also finished in the Top 40 of the NCAA Division I rankings, including three that finished in the Top 25.
