New Mexico State is expected to announce that its football program has found a new home. Sun Belt Conference and school officials say both sides are scheduled Wednesday to announce that the Aggies will accept an invitation to join the Sun Belt Conference in 2014. The move comes after the Western Athletic Conference gave up trying to field a football league in 2013. New Mexico State played eight years in the WAC and its football team will play as an independent in 2013. Sun Belt Conference Commissioner Karl Benson will hold a teleconference Wednesday and school officials will hold a news conference afterward in the Pan American Center. The Aggies, who went 1-11 last season, have not appeared in a bowl game since 1960.
