Hawks to Play North Texas


DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa has agreed to play a pair of home games against North Texas in 2015 and 2017.

North Texas plays in the Sun Belt Conference. The Mean Green finished 1-11 last season.

North Texas is perhaps best known to Iowans as being former coach Hayden Fry's final stop before taking over the Hawkeyes.

Fry coached at North Texas from 1973-78, compiling a record of 40-23-3.

Financial details of the agreement are not immediately available.
