Jason Bean Leads North Texas to Win Over Houston Baptist 57-31

Jason Bean was the last minute choice to start the pandemic season opener and did about all he could to win the job permanently. In split action with co-starter (according to the depth chart) Austin Aune, he put up a nice line: 11 of 18 for 217 yards and 3 touchdown passes against one interception.…

Rice Beats Up North Texas 20-14

HOUSTON, TX — As usual, the traveling North Texas crowd looked bigger than the home supporters, but that did not matter. Mike Bloomgren’s Rice Owls came to play on Saturday at Rice Stadium, and Seth Littrell’s Mean Green did not. Of course, things are not as simple as effort and desire and the twenty-two starters…

North Texas Men’s Basketball Falls to Oklahoma 73-57

Mean Green basketball was 8-0 coming into this game and had a big regionally televised game against Oklahoma on the road tonight. NT had every reason to figure it could compete reasonably well in this one. Last year, NT went to Norman and only lost by ten to a Trae Young-led Sooner squad. It could…

Late Show: Mean Green Pull Away From Rice 41-17

Let you think this was the blowout that was expected — NT came into this game 28 point favorites — it was not. North Texas was tied with Rice at 17 late in the third quarter before scoring 24-straight points to win. DeAndre Torrey had all three of those final three touchdowns including two rushes…

Defense Dominant as North Texas Beats Southern Miss 30-7

North Texas moved to 6-1 and 2-1 in C-USA play after a nice, business-handling win over Southern Miss. Perhaps you wanted some kind of 44-26 win where Mason Fine shows off his arm and his weapons? This blog wanted that but is more than happy to sit here with a 30-7 victory in which the…

Struggle Win: North Texas 27 UTEP 24

The North Texas Mean Green went to UTEP and struggled with the Miners. This has been a theme for some time. NT lost the last two in El Paso coming into today, including that awful 52-24 defeat in 2016 that served as the Miners’ most recent win. Senior Ryan Metz started in place of redshirt…
