C-USA media days blog

North Texas quarterback Mason Fine speaks with Arkansas coach Chad Morris following the Mean Green’s win over the Razorbacks last season. Fine and safety Khairi Muhammad will represent UNT next week at Conference USA media days.

North Texas quarterback Mason Fine will join safety Khairi Muhammad at Conference USA media days next week at The Star in Frisco.

The league's annual event serves as a kickoff of sorts for the football season. Each team’s head coach and two players represent their program at media days.

UNT is coming off a 9-4 campaign that included an appearance in the New Mexico Bowl. The Mean Green are expected to be one of the top teams in C-USA this season, largely due to the return of Fine.

The two-time C-USA offensive player of the year enters his senior season as the nation's active leading passer with 9,417 yards to go along with 64 touchdown passes.

Muhammad was an honorable mention All-C-USA selection last season, when he finished with 67 tackles and four interceptions.

C-USA traditionally releases its preseason poll and all-conference team in the days leading up to the media event.
