The North Texas Mean Green have added future football games against the San Jose State Spartans and the North Alabama Lions, according to a report by Brett Vito of the Denton Record-Chronicle.

North Texas and San Jose State will play a home-and-home football series beginning with the Mean Green traveling to face the Spartans at CEFCU Stadium in San Jose, Calif., on Saturday, Oct. 2, 2027. The series will conclude five seasons later with North Texas hosting San Jose State at Apogee Stadium in Denton, Texas, on Saturday, Sept. 25, 2032.

The Mean Green and the Spartans first met on the gridiron in 1953 and have squared off a total of four times. In their most recent meeting in 1981, San Jose State defeated North Texas at home, 28-16, to take a 2-1-1 lead in the overall series.

The Denton Record-Chronicle also reported today that the Mean Green will host the North Alabama Lions on Sept. 8, 2029. The Mean Green and Lions have never squared off on the gridiron.
