The North Texas Mean Green (0-5, 0-2 Conference USA) were defeat at Apogee Stadium on Saturday, Oct. 10 by the Portland State Vikings 66-7 to spoil Homecoming. The Mean Green were never competitive against the Vikings and fell to 0-5 for the first time since 2008. North Texas paid Portland State a $425,000 guarantee to play, which made the loss hard for the Mean Green to take. The defeat was North Texas’s first loss to a Football Championship Subdivision team since resuming play at the Football Bowl Subdivision level in 1995. The Mean Green had been 8-0 against FCS teams since that season. The Mean Green loss resulted in a night of change for the program. Head coach Dan McCarney was released following the setback.
