RE: North Texas/Houston Sign 2 Game Series
There it is. The 2019 UH game will replace the would-have-been 2019 Army game. Seems like a better option to me.

The optics of dropping two Army games for two Liberty games may not be great, but I think picking up this UH series more than validates it. IMO UNT's schedule is better off than before.

Hopefully UNT will be improved enough by then to make this an exciting match up! GMG

I like the Houston series... But, if we are going to pay Littrell a million a season, we should have a P5 home and home on the schedule. I hope our AD is still reworking our schedule.

Well, Texas Tech in a few years is a thing, right? I think it's like 10 years from now but hey!

Houston is way better than many so called power 5's. You know it I know it and everyone knows it.

They won a NY6 bowl 2 years ago. How many "p5" have done that. Very good get for UNT.

Houston has been good the lately, but they are not in a P5 conference. Fair or not, they don't garner the same name recognition, respect, or media interest teams from the Big12, SEC, Big10, ACC, or PAC. Houston is just another AAC game ESPN will dump on ESPN3.

Yes we have Texas Tech coming to Apogee, but that is about 10 years from now. We need a P5 home and home sooner then that. North Texas should dump Rhode Island in 2021, and sign Virginia to play at North Texas in 2021 and then UNT could play at Virginia in 2022. Virginia was 2-10 last season. That is a series North Texas should win against an AAC program.

Houston garners more so called "name recognition" that at least 20 "P5" programs. Put it this way, would you rather play Houston or Kansas (or any number of Kansas level "P5" teams)?

Not to mention the obvious benefit of a large crowd by playing an in-state rival. This is a great get for UNT. To bring in an excellent Houston program, which is going to draw well at your stadium is a win/win and way better than brining in some lower tier so called P5.

I like the idea of getting Virginia to visit but it takes two to tango and they may not be interested.

I don't think anyone is doubting the value of playing Houston. But, I'd rather have Kansas come to Hattiesburg than Houston. I'm sure majority USF fans would rather have Kansas as a home game than Boise.
