Legends of the Mean Green : 1990s

A push to re-join I-A Conference football was sparked in 1990.  The final year of Southland Conference membership occurred in 1994 with the Eagles winning the Conference championship.  1995 witnessed the return of North Texas to Division I-A play with the Eagles joining the Big West Conference in 1996.
