The city of El Paso was certainly excited Saturday night, as the big, bad Texas Longhorns came to town to face the hometown UTEP Miners. Despite a competitive game early on, Mack Brown’s boys eventually mauled Mike Price’s players 42-13. (Not that surprising, since this is the same UTEP squad that was squashed by MAC member Buffalo the week before.)
Still, the loss couldn’t dampen the excitement of El Pasoans, as a record 53,415 fans jammed into the Sun Bowl for Saturday’s showdown. And for those fans who couldn’t get a stadium seat, a nearby mountain provided a perfect spot to watch.
But even as the Longhorns pulled away, one mountainside couple managed to stay excited. And ESPN’s cameras were there to catch the action:

Notice where the girl’s left hand is located. Seems this Miners fan decided to do a little mid-game prospecting herself. Maybe she got the idea from this randy Rays couple.
Although this gal’s handiwork is quite a sight, it still doesn’t compare to the most intriguing image to come out of the Texas-El Paso campus.
That award goes to Claudia Porras.
