North Texas went to Athens Ohio and dropped a close one to Ohio University. Derek Thompson continued his improved lay with 2 TDs, but also contributed 2 interceptions in the loss. Ohio kicked 2 field goals in the fourth to keep pace and get the win.

The Mean Green tied the game in the fourth and hung around throughout but couldn't finish. A nice effort for UNT against a team that is a favorite in the MAC.

North Texas returns home for Ball State next week, before a trip to that other Athens in Georgia.
