Product Description



UTEP Miners (NCAA) (1963-present) Brut Sun Bowl Game (NCAA) (1963-present) El Paso Patriots (USL PDL) (1989-2001) Texas vs. The Nation Game (NCAA) (2007-present)

The Sun Bowl is an outdoor football stadium on the campus of the University of Texas at El Paso. It is home to the UTEP Miners of Conference USA (formerly of the WAC), and the late December college football bowl game, The Brut Sun Bowl. The stadium was opened in 1963 and has a current seating capacity of 51,500.

The land on which the stadium sits was originally donated by the university to the city of El Paso, who built the stadium for the school and the Sun Bowl game. Both had previously used Kidd Field, the school's current track and field stadium, which only seats 15,000. The city had realized that the game could not expand its audience or the list of teams that it could invite without a bigger stadium, so the Sun Bowl was built in a natural bowl lying to the west of the old stadium.
