ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - There were a lot of smiles at University Stadium Saturday night, even though the last home game this season ended in a loss for the Lobos.
Fans KRQE News 13 talked to were not too disappointed.
This season residents sort of come to expect a bigger show of support than in recent years, especially for this final home game, but there were a lot of empty seats in the stands.
It's been a problem all season long despite the fact this year's team has managed to turn things around.
They have won more games this season than they have in the past three seasons combined.
Many people say it's because of the new head coach, Bob Davie.
"Compared to the last three seasons way better,” David Tapia said. “I do like Davie's control of the team, his good discipline and play callings a lot better. It’s been a great season so far, I’m happy.”
There are 22 seniors on the Lobos football roster that are saying goodbye while hosting the Nevada Wolfpack Saturday.
The Lobos fell short of their 5th win of the season, the final score 31-24.
While this was the last home game, the Lobos play next at Colorado State.
