The New Mexico Lobos are the athletic teams that represent the University of New Mexico, located in Albuquerque. The university has participated in the NCAA Division I in the Mountain West Conference (MW) since 1999, after leaving the Western Athletic Conference. The university's athletic program fields teams in 20 varsity sports. The only varsity teams that do not compete in the MW are in sports that the conference does not sponsor: men's soccer, which plays in Conference USA (C-USA); and skiing, which competes in the Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Ski Association (RMISA).
