Defense Records Three Interceptions During Second Fall Scrimmage




DENTON, Texas (8/18/07) The North Texas football team completed its second of three fall scrimmages before its season opener at Oklahoma.

 

The scrimmage was highlighted by three defensive interceptions and two sacks. Not wanting to be overshadowed, the Mean Green offense found the endzone five times during the two-hour morning scrimmage.

 

North Texas will continue with two-a-days next week before classes begin Monday, Aug. 27. There are still a limited number of OU tickets available for the general public to purchase. Purchase your tickets online or through the North Texas Athletic Ticket Office.
