North Texas 21, Florida Atlantic 17

Sep 26, 2010 - 2:36 AM FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- Riley Dodge threw two touchdown passes to Darius Carey and North Texas beat Florida Atlantic 21-17 in the Sun Belt Conference opener for both teams on Saturday night.

James Hamilton also scored a touchdown for North Texas (1-3), which amassed 257 rushing yards. Dodge was 10-for-15 passing for 146 yards in the Mean Green's first victory over Florida Atlantic (1-2) in the seven game series.

North Texas stretched its lead to 21-10 on Hamilton's 32-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, but the owls would close the gap on the ensuing possession. Jeff Van Camp's 36-yard touchdown pass to Rob Housler pulled Florida Atlantic within 21-17.

Florida Atlantic would threaten later marching to the Mean Green 28, but the North Texas defense stopped the potential game-winning drive.

Van Camp finished 20-for-31 for 273 yards.
