Dunbar has big night for Cowboys


Recommended Posts

ARLINGTON -- Rookie Lance Dunbar rushed for 105 yards, including a 58-yard touchdown, and Dan Bailey made three field goals in a 30-13 win over Miami in the preseason final Wednesday night at Cowboys Stadium.

The final roster cutdown is Friday. Dallas opens the regular season at the New York Giants next Wednesday.

In the battle for a backup running back job, Dunbar, second-year man Phillip Tanner and rookie fullback Jamize Olawale had strong games. Dunbar and Olawale played at North Texas.

Dunbar had a 27-yard punt return to go along with his 105 yards. Tanner had nine carries for 48 yards and a touchdown. Olawale had seven carries for 53 yards with a long of 24 yards.

"Dunbar ran the ball very well," Dallas coach Jason Garrett said. "He's a tough guy."

Lance was named "Player of the Game".... ... sort of hard to cut the player of the game. ... 105 yards .. a 50 yd TD....... He looked extremely good at breaking tackles.

Jamize had 53.. both averaged 7 yds per carry.

They cut the team down on Friday.

I have had many discussions/arguments with people about Lance making the team. If he doesn't make the 53 man then I have a lot of crow to eat.

When he does then many foks owe me a "you were right".

Grant Gilbert @Grant_UNT @SportsSturm @JustinMonty not a chance. He made someone's 53 man roster tonight. No doubt. You're crazy Bob. He'll never clear waivers

Bob Sturm @SportsSturm @Grant_UNT @JustinMonty I may be crazy, but you have UNT in your twitter name.

      He was once among the hottest names in college football coaching circles, with a potential path to one day coach his alma mater, Oklahoma.
      Two years later, Seth Littrell remains at North Texas as he prepares for its final game of the year in what will likely be the Mean Green’s second straight losing season.

      TCU assistant Doug Meacham will interview at North Texas for the open head coaching position as one of two finalists, according to a person familiar with the interview schedule.
      North Carolina assistant Seth Littrell is the other finalist.
      Meacham has been the offensive coordinator at TCU the past two seasons. He was hired from Houston, where he was offensive coordinator, to install the Air Raid offense for the Horned Frogs and brought in Sonny Cumbie from Texas Tech as co-offensive coordinator.
      Under Meacham and Cumbie, the TCU offense has been one of the best in the country, and quarterback Trevone Boykin has been a Heisman Trophy candidate in 2014 and 2015 after spending the previous two seasons at running back and wide receiver. The Horned Frogs are 22-3 the past two seasons.

      North Texas athletic director Rick Villarreal interviewed Oklahoma offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley this week for the Mean Green’s open head football coaching vacancy, according to a university official.
      It’s unclear whether Riley was the first candidate to be interviewed, but he was the most recent from a list of candidates that is believed to include Arizona State offensive line coach Chris Thomsen, the former head coach at Abilene Christian, and Texas A&M offensive coordinator Steve Spavital.
      Villarreal is also expected to inquire about the interest of TCU co-offensive coordinators Doug Meacham or Sonny Cumbie.
      The 32-year-old Riley is in his first season with Oklahoma after spending five seasons as East Carolina’s offensive coordinator. Before that, Riley was an offensive assistant at Texas Tech.
      He is considered one of college football’s bright, young offensive minds.
      In Riley’s up-tempo spread scheme, the Sooners are averaging more than 530 yards a game and 45 points, including 60 the past three games.
