The Red Wolves (6-3, 4-1 Sun Belt) fell behind 2-0 on the game's first play, when the kickoff was fumbled in the end zone and Arkansas State recovered, giving North Texas a safety. But Aplin hit Julian Jones for a 59-yard touchdown for a 7-2 lead.
Aplin ran for a 5-yard score and connected with Kedric Murry for a 4-yard TD in the second quarter as the Red Wolves built a 30-12 lead by halftime.
