North Texas announces 2018 football schedule featuring home rematch against Florida Atlantic

The North Texas football team released the entirety of its schedule for the 2018 season on Tuesday, giving fans another reason to be excited for the upcoming year. 

The non-conference schedule has been out for a while. The Mean Green open with home games against Southern Methodist University and the University of Incarnate Word before going on the road to play the University of Arkansas and Liberty University.

The Conference USA portion of the schedule was the main draw of Tuesday’s release. North Texas will play the same eight teams as last year, just in a different order and at the opposite location. 

The Mean Green will play the six teams in C-USA West Division as well as Old Dominion University and Florida Atlantic University from the C-USA East. 

The home games: Louisiana Tech on Sept. 29, Southern Mississippi on Oct. 13, Rice University on Oct. 27 and Florida Atlantic on Nov. 17.

The away games: University of Texas at El Paso on Oct. 6, University of Alabama at Birmingham on Oct. 20, Old Dominion Nov. 10 and University of Texas at San Antonio on Nov. 24.

The bye week comes after week nine on the week of Nov. 3.

“We think this is a great schedule, and we hope the Mean Green fans will help us continue to make Apogee Stadium the best home-field advantage in Conference USA,” head coach Seth Littrell said in a release. “Playing two games at home to open the season and having four bowl teams come to Denton doesn’t happen very often. It should be a fun year, and we need to pack Apogee to help us continue our winning streak here.”
