New Mexico Bowl moved...

Is there any particular reason that Apogee couldn't host the game?  Seems like a missed opportunity. 

My guess is Frisco is 10 times more proactive than Denton or UNT and is far more equipped to take on a short notice event than many cities. They could have looked at Lubbock because its close or anywhere else in Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, or Arizona.

There's a reason the Cowboys are in Frisco, the PGA is moving to Frisco, the Stars are in Frisco, FC Dallas is in Frisco, the FBS National Championship is in Frisco, Frisco has a Bowl game, Conference BB Tournaments, and even we are opening a real campus in Frisco. It was probably a pretty easy choice for them. 

I just hope we make a bowl and don't have another NM Bowl disaster like the last one.

and I'd assume outdoor (safer) vs indoor.   Although, I'm wondering if they'll even allow fans?

They currently have fans in there for HS Football and FCD so I assume there will be folks in the stands unless the NCAA has some gripe.

My first thought was also why not Apogee? 
Maybe lack of hotels and little outreach as you mentioned also.
