North Texas completes 2023 football schedule with game at Florida International

North Texas filled the latest opening on their 2023 schedule with the addition of the Florida International game.

The game will take place on September 9th.

A source familiar with the situation confirmed UNT’s plans for Denton Record-Chronicle Tuesday morning.

The FIU is a familiar opponent of the UNT. The schools are currently members of the Conference USA and have played the home series for the last two seasons.

UNT won both of those games, including a 52-14 victory this year at Apogee Stadium, which tied the team’s record streak at 5-5.

FIU finished last season 4-8 and lost the last four games of the year.

UNT is leaving C-USA for the American Athletic Conference this summer, which will put Mean Green on a tougher schedule. On this list, UNT will continue its annual streak with rival SMU after C-USA named the Mustang UNT as a natural contender.

The full list of UNT conferences for America’s first year has yet to be announced, but the addition of the FIU game gives Mean Green a clear idea of ​​what they’ll be up against in non-conference play.

UNT will host Cal on September 2 and Abilene Christian on September 30 in a multi-game series. UNT will also meet Louisiana Tech on September 16th.

Louisiana Tech and FIU are members of C-USA and will remain in the league after the latest round of reorganization at the conference. UNT is one of six schools that are moving from C-USA to American.

The UNT will collide with the FIU during program changes. Eric Morris is starting his first season as Mean Green coach.

Morris, a former Washington state offensive coordinator, replaced Seth Littrell, who was fired at the end of last season.

UNT finished 7-7 in Littrell’s final season after losing to Boise State in the Frisco Bowl.
