Through 2 Quarters
The North Texas Mean Green were expected to win this one, and so far that’s exactly how it’s playing out. They have emerged as the frontrunner at halftime and are ahead of the Northwestern State Demons 24-14. North Texas has been riding high on the performance of RB DeAndre Torrey, who has rushed for three TDs and 170 yards on 13 carries.
With three sacks, the North Texas defense has been a true menace for Northwestern State’s offensive line. We’ll see how many sacks the Mean Green can scare up the rest of the game.
