Football Tailgates

Alumni at Homecoming 2016

The NMSU Alumni Association hosts family-friendly tailgates during the Aggie Football season, including one during Homecoming and at least one more for rivalry games at home (UTEP or UNM). Tailgates typically charge an admission cost, but the price includes food and beverages - normally a cash bar is available as well. Bring your kids, nieces, nephews and other children to enjoy some bounce house fun and other yard games before the big match-up later that evening.

This year, the Alumni Association planned two tailgates, including one at Homecoming and one against the UNM Lobos on September 15. For pictures from these events, visit our Facebook page @NMSUAlumFriends.

Are you near one of our Aggie Football away games? Want to host a tailgate for traveling fans and nearby Alumni? Your Alumni Chapter can host a tailgate as well. This past season, Minnesota alumni came together in Minneapolis to cheer on the team and connect with Alumni in a rarely visited part of the country.
