The 2001 North Texas Mean Green football team represented the University of North Texas in the 2001 NCAA Division I-A football season. The Mean Green played their home games at the Fouts Field in Denton, Texas, and competed in the newly formed Sun Belt Conference. They were led by fourth-year head coach Darrell Dickey. The team finished their regular season 5-6 overall; in Sun Belt play they were 5-1, tied for first place with Middle Tennessee.

North Texas entered the New Orleans Bowl with a losing record of 5-6, which would usually not be considered bowl-eligible; they were able to play in a bowl game by being co-champions of their conference.[1] Previously, the most recent bowl appearance by a team with a losing record had been William & Mary in the 1970 Tangerine Bowl.[1] The Mean Green lost the New Orleans Bowl to Colorado State, finishing the season with an overall mark of 5-7.

Previous season

In 2000, North Texas compiled a 3-8 record (1-4 in conference play) during the regular season, failing to qualify for a bowl game for the 41st straight season.
