Wisconsin adds UTEP to 2012 football schedule

By Kevin Kelley -

The Wisconsin Badgers have added the UTEP Miners to their 2012 football schedule. An exact date for the game has not been announced (Source).

This will be the first ever meeting between the two schools. UTEP, currently a member of Conference USA, finished the 2009 season 4-8 overall and 3-5 in the conference.

Wisconsin has one other non-conference game scheduled for 2012, a Sept. 8 trip to Oregon State. Their Big Ten schedule is set, but will likely be changed due to the addition of Nebraska to the conference.

UTEP opens the 2012 season at home against New Mexico and will also host New Mexico State. They were supposed to play at Texas, but that game has been moved to the 2016 season.
