North Texas mascot demonstrates perfect way to celebrate bowl game win

Shayn Roby’s Take: The Mean Green at North Texas logged a bowl win over the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels and are becoming one of the examples of how to move a mid-major program toward competing with the big boys of Division I college football. Regardless of what impact the Mean Green makes on a national scale in the future, no one can take away the thrill of victory they experienced at the Heart of Dallas Bowl.

For The Win

North Texas defeated UNLV in the Heart of Dallas Bowl on Wednesday, 36-14. While everyone on the Mean Green was obviously thrilled, perhaps no one perfected the art of the celebration more than its mascot, captured in this photo by USA TODAY Sports photographer Jerome Miron.

Derek Thompson threw for 256 yards and two touchdowns and the Mean Green dominated the second half of the game to take the bowl victory.
