VIDEO: HOD Memories - The Turning Point In The Game
A UNLV Turnover Leads To A Mean Green Touchdown
Each day this week MeanGreenSports.com will look back at the five best memories from the 2014 Heart of Dallas Bowl win over UNLV. Check back each day to relive the exciting win!
The Mean Green got a break late in the opening period that got them even on the scoreboard after UNLV scored early. A punt to UNLV was jarred loose from Rebel return man Keith Whitely when one of his own blockers crashed into him as he was fielding the kick. Zed Evans recovered the fumble for North Texas at the UNLV 42.
Wide receivers Chancellor and Carlos Harris then sparked the offense and moved the Mean Green to the UNLV three with three reverses, something North Texas practiced again and again in the lead-up to the game. Antoinne Jimmerson scored from a yard out to tie the game.
With the game tied 7-7 at halftime, North Texas took complete control in the second half.
