2014 Heart of Dallas bowl score update: UNLV trails North Texas 21-7 in final quarter

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

UNLV's offense has been stifled and trail 21-7 to start the fourth quarter.

North Texas' defense is that good and they have stepped up their game in the second half to completely shutdown the UNLV offense in the third quarter. The Mean Green offense also is having a good game and lead the Rebels 21-7 to start the fourth quarter.

After UNLV's opening drive in the first quarter they easily drove the ball down the field to score a touchdown on a drive that lasted eight plays and 95 yards. After that the offense punted five times and missed a field goal, and had just 131 yards since that opening drive.

UNLV muffed a punt to allow North Texas an easy touchdown and the teams went back-and-forth in the first half with no points. North Texas took their first two drives for a touchdown in the second half to have a two touchdown lead at the start of the fourth quarter.

The way North Texas' defense has played in the second half this two touchdown lead might just be too much for UNLV to recover. UNLV's first drive of the fourth quarter resulted in a punt.
