The University of New Mexico men's basketball team will face one of its oldest rivals in program history on Saturday as the Lobos host the No. 23 Arizona Wildcats in Dreamstyle Arena - The Pit at 6 p.m.

The University of New Mexico men's basketball team is set to return to Dreamstyle Arena - The Pit on Wednesday, Nov. 29 when the Lobos host Evansville in the Mountain West/Missouri Valley Challenge at 7 p.m.

The University of New Mexico's comeback bid fell just short, losing 27-24 to Colorado State in its "Lobos Love Pink" game on Friday night despite Tyrone Owens rushing for 159 yards and a touchdown.

Overall the team outgained Colorado State 450-411 and UNM rushed for 354 yards a week after getting just 109, despite massive changes along the offensive line.

There were heroes aplenty, but the biggest was certainly Jason Sanders, who kicked a career-long 53-yard field goal with no time left to propel the Lobos to a 16-13 win in the sweltering heat and humidity at Tulsa, evening UNM's record at 2-2.

The New Mexico Lobos' defense kept them in the game, but in the end it wasn't enough to overcome a stout Boise State defense as the Lobos dropped a 28-14 decision in Boise to fall to 1-2 on the season and 0-1 in the Mountain West.
