North Texas Finds Winning Formula Against UL
The Cajun defense ranked first in the Sun Belt against the run coming in tonight's game, allowing opponents 107.2 yards a game on the ground. But North Texas stayed patient and continued to pound away at the Cajun defense with the running game in the second half.
North Texas trio of running backs Brandin Byrd, Antoinne Jimmerson and Jeremy Brown found plenty of room to run up the middle of the Cajun defense and off tackle during the second half. Byrd finished the game with 88-yards on 22 carries, Jimmerson 35-yards on 8 carries and Brown rushed for 62-yards on 9 carries, including the Mean Green's longest run of the night 41-yards.
UNT quarterback Derek Thompson's solid night in the pocket 17 for 28 and 282-yards was aided by a 78-yard touchdown off a screen pass to running back Antoinne Jimmerson.
The North Texas come-back in the second half was also aided by the Mean Green defense that held Louisiana to 144-yards in the second half.
The Cajun's offense got a solid performance from quarterback Terrance Broadway, who passed for 240-yards on 22-of-36 passing and a touchdown on the night.
