North Texas upsets #6 UTEP It was the game of the year in Conference USA as UNT (who hasn't lost a conference game in which they played - 2 sim losses) vs undefeated and #6 ranked UTEP. Game was back and forth all the way as UTEP took the opening score and did what they had done all year, drove the field and scored as RB Jeffery scored from 7 yards out to make it 7-0 UTEP. But it didn't last long as North Texas goes the length of the field in 3 plays and scores on a Pegram 1 yd TD run to tie the game at 7. After a punt by UTEP (only one by either team all game), North Texas scored again, this time on 2 plays as Brock Berglund hit hit Lynrick Pleasant on the slant pattern and he turned it into a 74 yard gain. Pegram scored from 1 yard again and gave UNT the 14-7 lead. UTEP responded and their workhouse, Jeffery, put home another short run to tie the game at 14. North Texas answered with a long drive of their own, nearing 4 minutes as they kick a 20 yard fg as time expires to give the Mean Green a 17-14 lead going into the locker room. 2nd half was identical to the first as the teams went blow for blow. North Texas used some timely passing by Berglund who finished a perfect 8-8 for 224 yards to convert some tough 3rd downs. Pegram scored again from 1 yard out for his 3 TD of the game and UNT took a 24-14 lead that would last all the way into the 4th quarter. Price kicked a 19 yard field goal to put UTEP with 7 at 24-17. North Texas responded by taking 3 minutes off the clock and a Zack Olen 42 yard FG to regain a 10 point lead with only 3:40 to go. UTEP responded by shredding the UNT zone and scoring in 1 minute and 15 seconds when Perry caught a 4 yard out patern from Showers. UNT 27-24 with just under 2 and a half minutes to go. First play after the kickoff Berglund takes the keeper 56 yard and seemlingly setting up the victory for UNT. Not so fast....as UTEP uses their time outs to set up a 4th and inches at the UTEP 17 yard line with 1 minute to go. A field goal makes the lead only 6 with a minute to go and UTEP just shredded the UNT defense last drive. Coach Medicis decides to roll the dice, and try and pick up the yard to put the game away. A perfectly timed blitz by the MLB stops Pegram in the backfield with just under a minute left though. UTEP ball down 3. However, today was a day for the Mean Green as Showers first pass was picked off by Freddie Warner. As time expired the students rushed the field. It was party time in Denton, Texas as North Texas had knocked off #6 UTEP 27-24. UTEP will still win C-USA West as the 2 sim losses will end up really hurting UNT. North Texas moves to 7-3 on the year, 4-2 in conference while UTEP falls to 8-1 and 4-1 in C-USA. North Texas has a bye week next week so the students can enjoy this one. They return in 2 weeks for Senior Night against UTSA who is currently 1-8 on the year. Great game Javier24 . I look forward to playing some rivalry games against u over the coming years and enjoying a close game against some one who plays a straight up game like myself. Snake Eyez game played much better with the lower time. I think we found a good spot. Even with me running some no huddle, I didn't feel like the game dragged on forever and we ended with a reasonable score.
