  1. EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – UTEP football returns one of their most important pieces on the offense for 2022. Trent Thompson, a senior tight end, is ready to take his game to the next level for the Miners as they approach the beginning of their season. “He is one of the most important guys on our football team,” said UTEP head coach Dana Dimel. “He brings so much to the team and is one of our very, very best players on the team and at his position. He’s an outstanding blocker, can catch the ball well when he gets his opportunities and just a really physical football player, so we love Trent. He’s a really, really important to our ball club.” In 2021, Thompson had his best year for the Miners, as he was the team’s primary tight end target. He collected nine receptions for 133 yards and four touchdowns. Thompson finished his 2021 season on a high note. The product out of Houston, Texas recorded career highs in yards (52) and touchdowns (two) against Fresno State in the New Mexico Bowl. One of his signature moments, was when Thompson was the one on the receiving end of a 51-yard score against the Bulldogs in the bowl game. read more: https://www.ktsm.com/sports/college-sports/utep/uteps-trent-thompson-looks-to-improve-game-for-2022-season/

So it’s an easy prep and a prep to where we can start easily modifying things to specifically fit what they do.” read more: https://www.ktsm.com/sports/college-sports/utep/utep-well-underway-with-implementing-game-plan-for-north-texas/

The Miners responded two plays later when Ryan Metz, in his first start for UTEP, hit Keynan Foster in stride for a 67-yard scoring strike to trail 27-24.

UNT faces UTEP, which is just 1-7 on the year, on Saturday at Apogee Stadium. The Mean Green then has a week off before facing UTSA and then Tulsa to close out the regular season.
