The Arizona men's club rugby team will host its lone home game of the fall semester against New Mexico tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. at Estevan Park.
The Ruggers (3-0) are off to their best start in five seasons after dispatching ASU 38-24 Sunday in Tempe.
Arizona has won by an average score of 40-18 in defeating Baylor, Texas and the Sun Devils.
"The great news is that we have much to add, and in many ways (we) can improve," said Ruggers head coach Dave Sitton in a press release.
Arizona is 6-2 all-time against New Mexico (8-4), including a 41-22 loss in the teams' last meeting in 2003 in Tucson.
The Lobos lost their last game against No. 18 Colorado State.
The Ruggers enter the matchup sans four injured starters. Fullback Joey Ordonez suffered a broken collarbone on a 45-yard scramble against ASU, and flanker Matt Wagoner broke a fibula.
They, along with center Matt Stewart and flanker Matt Seward, are expected to return healthy when Arizona's season restarts in January.
Estevan Park is located at 1000 N. Main St.
