It’s Sunday night and time for the leftovers, where we dig through the events of the weekend, reheat the good stuff — and some of the bad — while hopefully putting it all in perspective.
The bad news tonight is it looks like former UNT standout Lance Dunbar suffered a pretty serious knee injury in a game against the New Orleans Saints. Dunbar had 54 yards on three carries when he went down.
It’s been tough going for UNT this season in football in general. The Mean Green are 0-4 after falling at Southern Miss.
UNT opened as a 1-point underdog for its game against Portland State, an FCS team that the Mean Green are theoretically paying to come to Apogee Stadium because the Vikings should be an easy win.The Vikings beat Washington State this year, so that is probably not going to be the case.
One big positive to come out of the weekend is that A.J. Lawson, a top 25 player in the state, committed to the UNT men’s basketball team. Here is our post from earlier today. See Tuesday’s paper for more.
And in other news, the UNT soccer team beat Florida International and Florida Atlantic over the weekend to improve to 10-2-1 overall and 2-0-1 in C-USA play. Middle Tennessee is the only unbeaten team left in the league. UNT is in a pretty good spot.
The UNT volleyball team also picked up an important win by knocking off Rice on Friday. The Mean Green are 3-1 in C-USA play.
