Kim Phillips: UNT bowl game puts spotlight on Denton


Recommended Posts

The University of North Texas Mean Green is headed to its first bowl game in nine years! I am excited as both a Dentonite and an alum.

The Mean Green will face the University of Nevada at Las Vegas in the Heart of Dallas Bowl on New Years Day at the Cotton Bowl stadium.

Back in the Sunbelt Conference days, UNT went to the New Orleans bowl four years in a row, from 2001-04. Since then, our football luck hasnt been so great.

For head coach Dan McCarney and his team, this ball game has been their goal since he arrived on the scene three seasons ago to put Mean Green football back on the map.

Rick Villarreal, director of UNT athletics, is charged up about the bowl game but not surprised.

This is an exciting time, he said. A lot of people thought with this being our first year in Conference USA, that wed have to grow into it. But weve been getting ready for this for a long time.
