UNT Legends: a Century of Mean Green Football

Explore over 100 years of UNT's football history in this collection that spans from 1906 to the present. In 1906 UNT’s first football team took to the field, and over the next century the team obtained some incredible successes such as its first bowl game win on December 21, 1946 against the College of the Pacific in the Optimist Bowl. UNT would move on to other bowl games: the Salad Bowl (precursor to the Fiesta Bowl), the Sun Bowl, and the New Orleans Bowl.

Legendary players such as Ray Renfro, Abner Haynes, Richard Gill, and Joe Greene drove UNT to even greater accomplishments.
