    Default Game 1 New Mexico St. - Exhibition Schedule

    Look at all of the exhibition games New Mexico State has played.

    This is our first opponent in the Cajundome.

    Timing and playing together in games can be very helpful.

    Wonder why we only have 1 exhibition game?

    I see that we also return a road game to their campus.

    Looks like they were playing in an int'l tournament. It's something the NCAA lets teams do every couple of years.

    That's a huge advantage.

    A school can do that once every 4 years.

    Denver went to Spain in August and September.

    Very important to do. Great tool to recruit to. Get a trip out of the country every four years. And if you time your redshirt right, you can go twice.

    It's also a huge benefit if you can do one in early August, b/c the NCAA allows you practice time leading up to it.

    You can play two exhibition games, or do 1 exhibition game and a private scrimmage with another D1 team.

    I heard from a buddy that they will go to Natchitoches to scrimmage NW St. These scrimmages must be closed to public though. Probably more bang for your buck from a coaching perspective to do that.

    Yes, those scrimmages are closed to the public.

    I was not aware of that Int tourny rule , but that can be used as a real nice advantage coming into the season esp early on. Learn something new all the time !

    I've been told that the Cajuns will play a closed scrimmage against Northwestern State on Nov. 7 (Sunday).
