UNT has accepted an invitation to the Heart of Dallas Bowl, where the Mean Green football team will play its fifth bowl game since 2001.

“It is an honor to be invited to participate in the Heart of Dallas Bowl,” head coach Dan McCarney said in a press release. “We are tremendously excited to be involved in a New Year’s Day bowl game at a venue with all the history of the Cotton Bowl Stadium. This will make it easy for all of our fans to come and watch this team make history while going for its ninth win of the season.”

The bowl game is the first for UNT since going to the New Orleans Bowl four consecutive years from 2001-2004. The game will be held at 11 a.m. on Jan. 1 at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, which seats 92,000.

In the 100th year of Mean Green football, UNT saw a shift to Conference USA and the best season in nine years, finishing with an 8-4 record — including a 6-2 mark in conference play.

UNT’s opponent is not official, but several players on Twitter have said it will be against the University of Nevada-Las Vegas. Follow @ntdaily and @ntd_sports for official information as it is announced.

Tickets are available on MeanGreenSports.com and TheHeartOfDallas.org. Student-discounted pricing will be announced in the next few days, according to Mean Green Athletics.
