DENTON (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – The Mean Green handed the Roadrunners a resounding defeat of 45-23 today, ending hopes for a perfect season.

North Texas’ blowout win is a disappointing end to the season for UTSA fans, who had hoped to go 12-0.

Although the Roadrunners managed to avoid throwing any interceptions, three lost fumbles played a significant role in their loss.

UTSA quarterback Frank Harris managed to score a rushing touchdown, but two costly fumbles in the first half led to his being benched in the second.

UNT was also able to covert third downs far more effectively, making 7/13 attempts versus UTSA’s 2/13.

The Mean Green offense held onto the ball for nearly 13 more minutes than UTSA, making 15 more plays over the course of the game.

Penalties also took a toll on the Roadrunners, setting them back a total of 68 yards across five flags.

In contrast, UNT was only called for three penalties that took them back 25 yards.

The game marked the first time a top 25 team had ever played in UNT’s 10-year-old Apogee Stadium.

Despite the disappointing loss, UTSA is still playing in the Conference USA championship game Friday.

Meanwhile, North Texas improves to 2-47 against ranked opponents.

He was selected by the Pirates in the sixth round of the 1966 June Draft and played more than 400 games with the team from 1970-74. He went on to play for the Mets, Rangers and Cubs. After his career, he was a coach with multiple teams.

“It was an honor to have Gene back in Pittsburgh this past September to recognize him and his teammates from our 1971 World Series Championship team who took the field as part of Major League Baseball’s first all-minority lineup. It was a joy to talk to him about his deep passion for baseball, his love for his teammates and his appreciation for the city of Pittsburgh. Our hearts go out to his wife Joanne, his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren,” said Williams.
