East Sideline Seating consists of sections 18-26, which are behind the home team sideline. Sections 21-23 provide some of the best views here thanks to their positioning near the 50 yard line.
This area is home to largest of any seating sections at the Sun Bowl, with 84 numbered rows of seating in each. Unlike the west sideline which only features a single entry tunnel, the east sideline sections have two entry tunnels, the lower located at Row 29, and the upper at Row 49.
Rows 70-84 on this side of the stadium are often called the Sun Seats because of the plethora of sun that shines on the East side of the stadium. Sections 18-21 are designated student seating areas during UTEP home games.
