North Texas, Houston Agree to Home-And-Home Series

June 5, 2017

DENTON - The North Texas football program and Vice President/director of athletics Wren Baker announced Monday that the Mean Green have agreed to a home-and-home series with the University of Houston. The Mean Green are scheduled to host the Cougars in 2019, while traveling to Houston in 2023.

"I am excited we were able to agree to this series with Houston," Baker said. "It has historically been an evenly-matched series that also has drawn substantial crowds. I am hopeful renewing this series will be fun and exciting for both fan bases."

The Mean Green and Houston have met 14 times dating back to 1947, splitting the all-time series 7-7. The last meeting came in 2012, a 44-21 win for the Cougars in Houston. The Mean Green opened Apogee Stadium on September 10, 2011 in front of 28,075 fans in Denton, a game that Houston won 48-23.

Season tickets for 2017 are on sale and fans can purchase tickets through the Mean Green athletics ticket office. For more information, visit or call the ticket office at 940-565-2527 or 800-868-2366.
