UNT Struggling on Defense

The North Texas Mean Green head into Saturday’s contest having dropped two of their last three, both losses seeing the defense surrender more than 40 points. The last three wins had North Texas allowing an average of 14.6 points, thus the defensive success translates to “W’s”.

UNT will have defensive coordinator Phil Bennett taking the reins of the squad, that after Seth Littrell was fired on the heels of the loss to UTSA. Bennett may try to make some changes defensively in an effort to improve the team’s fortunes.

Junior quarterback Austin Aune leads the offense, 3,309 passing yards (32 touchdowns, eighth in the country). Aune’s two interceptions did not help in the loss to UTSA, and he’ll need to avoid those mistakes against the Broncos.

The Mean Green had a balanced run game, three different players with over 500 yards. Sophomore Ayo Adeyi paced the team with 740 yards (four touchdowns, 7.6 yards per carry).

Boise St. Couldn’t Go West

The Boise St. Broncos didn’t come away with the Mountain West title, having lost in the aforementioned championship game to Fresno St. Coach Andy Avalos is still looking forward to the Frisco Bowl as a way to continue building the program.

We didn’t accomplish what we set out to do today, but we accomplished a lot of things this year,” Avalos said after the loss to Fresno St. “And we do get one more chance in a bowl game.”

Freshman quarterback Taylen Green struggled a bit in the losing effort, 17-of-38 (175 yards, two interceptions). Green ended with 1,905 yards (13 touchdowns) this season, with an additional 467 yards (eight touchdowns) on the ground.

Running back George Holani had 1,133 yards (10 touchdowns) this season. It was his first 1,000-yard season since he was a freshman back in 2019. Holani is also a threat to catch the ball out of the backfield, 22 receptions (153 yards, three touchdowns) this season.
