N. Texas stuffs Rice to set up UTSA rematch in title tilt

DENTON, Texas (AP) Austin Aune threw two touchdown passes and North Texas fought off Rice for a 21-17 win Saturday to secure a bid in the Conference USA title game against UTSA in the Alamodome on Dec. 2.

The Mean Green (7-5, 6-2) will get a chance to avenge their 31-27 loss to the Roadrunners - also played in the Alamodome - which occurred on Oct. 22.

With the win, North Texas denied Rice (5-7, 3-5) a chance at bowl eligibility.
