UNT-Houston lead art

North Texas running back Tre Siggers celebrates with teammates after scoring during the Mean Green's win over UTSA earlier this season at Apogee Stadium. 

A showdown between North Texas and Houston this Saturday looked like it would be one of the biggest games of the week in college football at the Group of Five level not all that long ago.

Expectations were sky high for Houston heading into the first season of Dana Holgorsen’s tenure as the Cougars’ head coach, especially with quarterback D’Eriq King returning for his senior season. Hopes were just as high for UNT with quarterback Mason Fine leading a team that is projected to win Conference USA’s West Division.
