The New Mexico State Aggies will host the Incarnate Word Cardinals in 2019, according to UIW’s official website.
New Mexico State will entertain Incarnate Word at Aggie Memorial Stadium in Las Cruces on Nov. 16, 2019. The game will be the first-ever meeting between the two schools on the gridiron.
Incarnate Word is a member of the Southland Conference in the Football Championship Subdivision. The Cardinal, which started up their football program in 2009, are 1-7 overall and 1-5 in Southland play this season.
New Mexico State is playing its last season as a member of the Sun Belt Conference. In 2018, NMSU will join Army, BYU, Liberty, Notre Dame, and UMass as an FBS Independent.
UIW is the ninth known opponent on NMSU’s 2019 football schedule. The Aggies are slated to host UTEP, Liberty, and Incarnate Word and travel to Washington State, Alabama, Georgia Southern, Ole Miss, Liberty, and New Mexico.
New Mexico State still needs to schedule three additional opponents in 2019. Two of those opponents will need to be home games in order to meet the FBS minimum requirement of five.
