Losing to Oklahoma and Ole Miss was expected. It wasn't by big scores, as has been the case for 30 years against big-game opponents - 24-7 and 28-10. It used to be 40-something to not-much-of-anything.
But UTEP shows no offense and it's tough to win seven games (winning season) when you lose your first two. Next up is archrival New Mexico State, then comes a (yes) for-sure loss at Wisconsin.
UTEP's season now will be chronicled by how well the Miners do after playing at Wisconsin.
