UNT-SMU series story

North Texas running back DeAndre Torrey (3) breaks through SMU’s defensive line during the Mean Green’s loss to the Mustangs last season at Gerald J. Ford Stadium in Dallas. UNT and SMU will play their last nonconference game this Saturday at Apogee Stadium before the Mean Green join the American Athletic Conference next summer. SMU is a member of the American.

North Texas wide receiver Roderic Burns won’t soon forget the night SMU rolled into Apogee Stadium back in 2018.

The Mean Green have only experienced a few fleeting moments of success in one of the program’s longest-running series.
