Thoughts

The Mean Green appear to have a better conference schedule draw than last season. North Texas only plays last year’s top 4 programs a total of 5 times — @Middle Tennessee; @La Tech; Old Dominion; UTEP – home and away. North Texas will play the Florida twins twice (both home and away), who finished with a combined record of 9-27 in conference play and an overall 17-44 record last season.

Grant McCasland will be looking to right the ship after the program has not seen a winning record since Johnny Jones left the program to become the Head Coach at LSU in 2012.

The complete schedule should be announced in the next month or so. Last year the complete schedule was announced on August 10th.
