MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) — Backup Jason Bean rushed for three touchdowns, passed for two more and North Texas rallied to beat Middle Tennessee 52-36 on Saturday.

The Mean Green trailed 28-14 at halftime but then scored five unanswered touchdowns that included three Bean runs — two going for 48 yards each — and passes of 9 yards to Donte Simpson and 55 yards to Jaelon Darden. That left North Texas ahead 49-28 with 11 minutes remaining in the game.

Bean finished with 169 yards rushing on 10 carries and was 12-of-17 passing for 181 yards as the Mean Green rolled up 768 total yards, snapping the school record of 721 set in their season-opening win over Houston Baptist. Bean entered the game in the second quarter after Austin Aune threw two interceptions and had a fumble turn into a Blue Raiders touchdown.

DeAndre Torrey rushed for 143 yards and two scores and Tre Siggers added 101 yards rushing. Darden caught 10 passes for 204 yards for the Mean Green (2-3, 1-2 Conference USA).

Asher O'Hara passed for three touchdowns and Chaton Mobley rushed for 156 yards and a score for the Blue Raiders (1-5, 1-3).
