North Texas junior quarterback Mason Fine earned high honors this week.

Conference USA named Fine the league’s offensive player of the year for the second consecutive season.

Fine is just the fifth player in C-USA history to earn those honors in consecutive seasons.

Fine is coming off a standout season in which he completed almost 65 percent of his passes for 3,743 yards with 27 touchdowns and five interceptions. He ranks eighth in the country in passing yards, fifth in completions per game (24.58) and 10th in total offense (312.1 yards per game).

With a season of eligibility left, Fine is already the school’s all-team leader in passing yards (9,358), completions (774), career passing efficiency (140.05) and total offense (9,503).

Bowl info

North Texas is headed to the New Mexico Bowl where it’ll face Utah State on Dec. 15. Ticket information is available on the school’s website.

North Texas (9-3, 5-3 C-USA) is looking for the first 10-win season in school history. The Mean Green has won nine games seven times in school history, including consecutive nine-win seasons in 2017-18.
