Riley Dodge threw two touchdown
passes to Darius Carey and North Texas beat Florida Atlantic 21-17
in the Sun Belt Conference opener for both teams on Saturday night.
James Hamilton also scored a touchdown for North Texas (1-3),
which amassed 257 rushing yards. Dodge was 10-for-15 passing for
146 yards in the Mean Green's first victory over Florida Atlantic
(1-2) in the seven game series.
North Texas stretched its lead to 21-10 on Hamilton's 32-yard
touchdown run in the fourth quarter, but the owls would close the
gap on the ensuing possession. Jeff Van Camp's 36-yard touchdown
pass to Rob Housler pulled Florida Atlantic within 21-17.
Florida Atlantic would threaten later marching to the Mean Green
28, but the North Texas defense stopped the potential game-winning
Van Camp finished 20-for-31 for 273 yards.
