Ugly Wins Are Wins: North Texas 45 ODU 38

Mason Fine saw the rush, stepped up, scrambled to his left. He found daylight to his left and sprinted toward it. He began his slide and NT was safely in the win column following some cursory kneels. Why was NT in need of a 3rd-and-8 scramble to win things? Well the reason is a long… Read more »
