DENTON, Texas — Mason Fine cooked the Golden Eagles again. And after Saturday's performance, he ought to have the recipe just right.
North Texas pulled away late for a 30-7 win over Southern Miss, Fine's third win in as many seasons over the Golden Eagles.
"At some point, you just have to give credit where credit is due," Southern Miss linebacker Jeremy Sangster said. "That guy is good. Really, really good."
The senior threw for 292 yards and a touchdown. Statistically, it was an underwhelming performance for the Maxwell and Manning Award candidate. But what the stats don't show is Fine's ability to scramble — the way he avoids sacks and gets rid of the football or how he never pulls the ball and keeps his eyes down field.
It also doesn't show how he kept getting back up after Sangster planted him in the ground twice in the first quarter and again in the third.
