North Texas coach Grant McCasland directs his team during its win over Western Kentucky in the Conference USA tournament last season in Frisco. The teams will meet this season in Bowling Green, Kentucky, a matchup that highlighted the Mean Green’s C-USA schedule that was released Monday.

Two of North Texas’ biggest wins in back-to-back championship seasons came against traditional Conference USA power Western Kentucky.

The Mean Green knocked off the Hilltoppers in the final of the C-USA men’s basketball tournament last season and clinched the league’s regular season title in the 2019-20 campaign with a win at the Super Pit.
