Danny Horwedel's second field goal of the game, a 24-yarder with
9:32 to play, was the game-winner. Shalamar Walker intercepted
Daniel Meager's pass at the Bulldogs' 40 with 59 seconds left to
end North Texas' final threat.

49-10 loss to Nebraska. Eric Newman caught six passes for 98 yards
and a touchdown for Tech (3-6).
Meager threw for 155 yards and a touchdown for North Texas
(2-7). Johnny Quinn caught five passes for 100 yards, surpassing
Troy Redwine to set a new North Texas school record for career
yards receiving, ending the game with 2,609.

back from a 21-0 first-quarter deficit to score 31 straight points.
