North Texas kicker Jeremy Knott nailed a 29-yard field goal to put the Mean Green up two possessions. If Western fails to match, it’s safe to say this one will finally be over.
Marell Booker came up short on fourth down, and now North Texas starts a drive from Western’s 46-yard line with nine minutes to go. A touchdown puts the Mean Green up two possessions.
Straight off the Kawaun Jakes interception, Riley Dodge recorded his sixth touchdown of the day — this one on the ground from a yard out — to give the Mean the lead.
Redshirt freshman quarterback Kawaun Jakes just committed his second turnover of the game — an interception on third-and-17 right into the hands of North Texas’ Jeremy Phillips. The Mean Green now sits deep inside Western territory with 14 minutes left.
North Texas sophomore running back Lance Dunbar sprinted 71 yards to lock the Mean Green and the Toppers at 49 apiece. Dunbar’s run was one of only two plays that made up the 80-yard drive.
