Since 1978, Aggie Memorial Stadium has been the home of New Mexico State football. Officially dedicated on Sept. 16, 1978, the Aggies christened the stadium with a 35-32 victory over rival Texas-El Paso. The top seven crowds in the history of Aggie Memorial Stadium, and eight of the top nine, have come in games against UTEP.
Aggie Memorial¹s capacity is 28,853, and was constructed at a cost of $4 million. The construction was funded by the New Mexico State Legislature as part of a capital outlay package. Presently valued at considerably more than the actual construction price, the stadium is one of the finest sports facilities in the Southwest.
