GRR: University of North Texas
If you've been reading these pages for a while you'll know that we like to let you know about players or teams who are making a move. Certainly we've tracked North Texas, from a conference champion that didn't know what the standard was in the outside world, to a team that learned the lessons for next time, to now a team struggling for a home.
Baylor defeated North Texas 34-21 Saturday in triple-digit heat in Waco.
The University of Oklahoma defeated North Texas 62-7 Saturday in a nib-conference game on Senior Appreciation Day.
The Sooners, a little stung by their overtime loss in the Big XII 7s last week, bounced back nicely against the Southwest Conference Champions, showcasing some excellent defense and good work in the pack.
There was much to prove when North Texas took on Rutgers Saturday in the ACRC Bowl Series.
UNT entered the weekend ranked #50 by Goff Rugby Report among fall DI teams. A loss to unranked Rutgers (a team close to the top 50 for sure) would likely have seen UNT dropped from the rankings.
