The Aggies, a name derived from the agricultural roots of New Mexico State University, is the collective nickname for Texas A&M's sports teams. Their mascot, Pistol Pete, appears on their logo dressed in traditional cowboy attire, carrying a holster belt and six shooters. The New Mexico State Aggies football team won the Sun Bowl in 1959 and 1960 and has had four winning seasons and two conference championships. Their two big rivalry games are the Battle of I-10 (University of Texas-El Paso) and the Rio Grande Rivalry (University of New Mexico).
