UNT will take on a huge challenge later today in Austin in its season-opener against Texas. I am down in Austin and will head over in a while.
Before I do, a few games have been played already in Conference USA.
So far, it going well.
UTSA beat Houston 27-7. That’s a huge win for the Roadrunners and an even bigger loss for the Cougars. Houston fans are not taking that one well.
Western Kentucky hammered Bowling Green 59-31.
Don’t sleep on UTSA.
The Roadrunners are loaded with seniors and absolutely have to take advantage of that fact this season before looking to reload next year. That will be a tough game for UNT late in the year.
And while we are at it, there is still time to send in a records pick for annual Get Your Rear on the Record contest.
