A change of venue was granted by the New Mexico Public Education Department (PED) for the annual rivalry football game between the Carlsbad Cavemen and Artesia Bulldogs, said Carlsbad Municipal Schools Superintendent Dr. Gerry Washburn. 

Both teams will travel from Eddy County to Hobbs in Lea County to play, following approval of the proposal by the New Mexico Public Education Department on Friday morning, Washburn said.

Washburn said he and Artesia Public Schools Superintendent John Ross Null had initially proposed to PED to allow parents, guardians and grandparents into Ralph Bowyer Caveman Stadium in Carlsbad for the Feb. 5 Eddy County War. 

Washburn argued the stadium had enough space to allow fans to attend safely, but that request was denied.
