Cheer on the Arizona Wildcats football team one last time this year as they take on the Nevada Wolf Pack in the New Mexico Bowl. The game airs at 11 a.m. on ESPN. If you can’t make it to Albuquerque, we recommend catching the game at any one of these great local places. Frog & Firkin on University Blvd has televisions everywhere, an extensive beer list, and a great patio. No Anchovies next door offers a delicious thin crust pizzas, big screen TVs, and good beer. A local brewery such as Barrio Brewing Co. at Toole Ave & 16th St. will make sure your taste buds are satisfied while the Wildcats play.
