ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Six years ago, New Mexicos football team was at one of the lowest points in its history with a dismal 1-11 record.UTSA was just about to start its football program.On Dec. 17, the two schools with rising programs will kick off the college postseason in the New Mexico Bowl following painful years of losing and long efforts to build competitive teams.At a New Mexico Bowl news conference, first-year UTSA head coach Frank Wilson said its an honor to lead the Roadrunners in the schools first ever bowl appearance.This is history for our program, Wilson said. No matter what happens, this will always be the first time for us.UTSA (6-6) won five of its last eight games to become bowl eligible for the first time in the programs six-year history.When Wilson took over the Roadrunners, he didnt make promises on when UTSA would make it to a bowl. I said wed make it whenever were good enough, Wilson said.And now that UTSA is in a bowl, Wilson said watch out for the teams exciting offense and speed. We vary game to game based on what we need to do to win the football game, he said.Meanwhile, the Lobos (8-4) shared the Mountain Wests Mountain Division title and are in a bowl for the second year in a row following years of losing records.New Mexico head coach Bob Davie said he was happy to play in back-to-back New Mexico Bowls.You know, you have to take advantage of the momentum, said Davie, the former Notre Dame coach who took over the struggling New Mexico program in 2012.He said New Mexico and UTSA have traveled similar paths in recent years to get to this point.UTSA athletic director Lynn Hickey said it was fitting for her school to play Davie and New Mexico in its first ever bowl. Thats because when Hickey was building the football program, she sought Davies advice while he was a college football analyst for ESPN and ABC.Did UTSA ever offer Davie the head coaching job before he came to New Mexico?I think that was probably something thats in the past and theres no reason to get that specific, Davie said. Its been a long journey. I have tremendous respect for them.---Follow Russell Contreras on Twitter at http://twitter.com/russcontreras .
