An old UNT coach once said he would be willing to play SMU in the Safeway store parking lot.

Hence, the game has become known as the 'Safeway Bowl.'

Just because an old NTSU coach would like to play in a parking lot instead of at home (perfectly reasonable) why would we buy into this cr@p? NTSU is trying to be something they're not, relevant. I'm sure our coaches and players realize that this a bowl game for NTSU and will prepare accordingly. They seem to have some sort of fixation about SMU and don't realize they are just a filler in the schedule for us. I don't hate NTSU. That would be like hating something stuck to the bottom of your shoe. Scrape it off and don't ever think about it again. Thinking about the game, if NTSU has some early setbacks they'll cave. Revised prediction;

SMU 63
ntsu 9

This is their big game of the year; and Mason Fine is problematic. We have to keep him off the field and in the pocket. SMU 35-UNT 26.

Some moron at NTCC came up with it back in the 70s? And he thought that we were on the same level with their like 3 wins at the time against our 25....

I think CBS' poll of the FBS 130 is a bit more accurate. This week has SMU at # 61 and UNT at # 63 which would indicate their "experts" figure this to be a hotly contested game and I agree.

The name was coined in 1994.

It's sad that some north Texas kid made a wiki page for this non-existent rivalry.
