Jake Roberts

North Texas tight end Jake Roberts carries the ball after catching a pass from Austin Aune in UNT's loss to SMU on Saturday at Apogee Stadium.

North Texas showed signs of building the type of potent offense it had in the height of coach Seth Littrell’s tenure in a season-opening win over UTEP.

UNT ran the ball effectively, quarterback Austin Aune threw three touchdown passes and the Mean Green came away encouraged with where they stood heading into their annual showdown with SMU.
