On Nov. 10, Conference USA tips off its 23rd men's and women's basketball seasons.

To borrow an old sports adage, if you want to be the champ, you have to beat the champ.

North Texas is one win from capturing Conference USA's West Division title after rallying for a 24-23 victory over defending West champion Louisiana Tech Saturday afternoon at Joe Aillet Stadium.

One of the earliest players to arrive at the court each morning for Mean Green men's basketball practice is also one of the first players that new head coach Grant McCasland brought in to help start the new era of North Texas basketball.

Stephen Williams' potential game-winning Hail Mary was intercepted in the endzone with zero seconds remaining and Old Dominion fell to WKU, 35-31, on Friday evening at Foreman Field at S.B. Ballard Stadium.

After a career game in WKU's 45-14 win over Charlotte, senior Deon Yelder has been named the John Mackey Tight End of the Week, it was announced Wednesday morning. Yelder had career highs of seven catches for 92 yards - all in the first half - while scoring his second touchdown of the season, an 8-yarder on the Hilltoppers' opening drive.
