North Texas-Army rematch in Heart of Dallas Bowl

(TSX / STATS) -- There will be a lot of familiarities at this year's Heart of Dallas Bowl, including the fact that Army and North Texas, the two teams squaring off on Dec. 27 at venerable Cotton Bowl Stadium on the grounds of the State Fair of Texas, have played already this season.

The Mean Green thumped Army 35-18 on Oct. 22 at West Point in a game in which the Black Knights committed seven turnovers, a dubious mark that tied for the most by any FBS team in one game this season.

North Texas, under first-year coach Sean Littrell, went 5-7 in the regular season but earned a berth in the bowl game on the strength of its Academic Progress Rate when there were not enough 6-6 or better teams eligible for the postseason. Of the 128 Football Bowl Subdivision schools, North Texas ranked 10th in APR and was second among non-eligible teams with 5-7 records.
