BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Derek Thompson threw for 251 yards and two touchdowns in North Texas' 20-14 win over Florida Atlantic on Saturday.
It marks the third time since 1997 that North Texas has been 2-3 after five games. The Mean Green was also 2-3 in 2003 and 2005 and had started 1-4 or worse in every year since 2005.
Chancellor finished with 135 yards receiving on six catches.
Thompson's second TD pass, a 14-yarder to Drew Miller, gave the Mean Green a commanding 17-0 third-quarter lead.
FAU rallied, scoring 14 unanswered points and cutting the deficit to 17-14, but Olen converted his second field of the day to seal the win.
Graham Wilbert led FAU (1-4) with 142 passing yards on 21 of 34 attempts, but threw two interceptions.
