North Texas vs Houston Cancelled Due To Covid-19

Four North Texas players reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 and the game this weekend against Houston will be cancelled. No doubt Dana Holgorsen will want to “chirp” about this game as well.

NT vs Houston: Half-time Notes

North Texas moved the ball in the first series against Houston, but stalls out midfield. That was North Texas most successful series until a field goal in the second quarter. Houston then took over the quarter, putting pressure on the North Texas offensive line. UNT’s plays developed too slowly for Mason Fine to get a…
