Mean Green March

The Mean Green March is a parade including the Green Brigade Marching Band, North Texas Dancers, the North Texas Cheerleaders, and your Mean Green football team. The March starts at Traditions Hall and proceeds through Mean Green Village, culminating at the Apogee Stadium. The Mean Green March takes place two hours before kickoff as the team makes its final pregame preparations.


Every time the Mean Green take the field: announcer and crowd - "Heeeeeeeere come the Mean Green!"

Kickoff Cheer

Crowd stands with Eagle Claws extended and yells - "GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" until the ball is struck, at which point the crowd yells "Mean Green!"

First Down

Green Brigade plays "Fanfare" after each Mean Green touchdown and the "Fight Song" after the extra point attempt.
