From May 22nd to June 2nd, Hook’em Headlines will rank the biggest games of the 2013 football season. Today we will breakdown the 12th biggest game of the season, the season opener against the New Mexico State Aggies.

Why could this game be bigger? 

It really couldn’t be a bigger game. It is the season opener so much of the anticipation will be about finally watching football games. In reality, this should be an easy win. According to, Texas has opened up as a 42 point favorite for the game against New Mexico State. This is a warm up game for the Texas Longhorns to knock off all the offseason rust and get into midseason form.

About New Mexico State:

New Mexico State will begin it’s first and only season as an FBS Independent in Austin, Texas on August 31st, 2013. The New Mexico State Aggies will join the Sun Belt in 2014 for football only. The Aggies finished 2012 with a record of 1-11 and didn’t win a game in the final season of WAC football. They are lead by Head Coach Doug Martin in his first year in Las Cruces, New Mexico. He was formally the Head Coach at Kent State where he finished with a 29-53 overall record. If Coach Martin is able to win at New Mexico State, he should win coach of the year.

Come back tomorrow as we release the 11th biggest game of the 2013 Texas Longhorns football season.
