The North Texas football team released its 2016 schedule Friday afternoon, and the Seth Littrell era will officially begin on Sept. 3 with a home game against rival Southern Methodist University. It is the second season in a row North Texas will open with a game against the Mustangs.

Seven of the Mean Green’s 12 opponents competed in a bowl game last season, with the toughest match-up of the season likely coming when North Texas travels to play the University of Florida in Gainesville on Sept. 17. It is the second meeting of all time between the two schools.

Unlike last season, the Mean Green will have six home games at Apogee Stadium. Along with SMU, North Texas will also play host to Bethuane Cookman University, Marshall University, Middle Tennessee State University, Louisiana Tech University and the University of Southern Mississippi. The Mean Green also do not have a Thursday game this season and play all of their games on a Saturday.

North Texas will play the same conference opponents as it did a year ago and will have a mid-season bye, as opposed to one to begin the year. The bye comes on Oct. 15 in between a home game against Marshall and a road contest at Army, giving them an extra week to prepare for Army’s triple option offense.
