UNT quarterback Mason Fine connected on 18-25 for 195 yards and a touchdown along with a 75 yard pick six with Rico Bussey Jr. hauling in a 51 yard scoring strike. Nic Smith gave the Mean Green an explosive performance on the ground with 178 yards on 26 carries including a 13 yard scoring run.

The Florida Atlantic Owls have won eight in a row  to go 8-0 in the CUSA to easily capture the East crown and earn home field advantage for the conference championship game. The Owls completed a perfect conference season with a 31-12 victory versus the Charlotte 49ers as a 25 point road favorite. FAU rolled to a 24-6 lead at the half and finished with a huge 563-255 yardage edge with a pair of lost fumbles making this score closer then it was.

Florida Atlantic quarterback Jason Driskel was deadly efficient on 18-22 for 245 yards  and a pair of touchdowns. Willie Wright was  the Owls top receiving option with nine receptions for 103 yards including a 41 yard TD while Kamrin Soloman snagged a 20 yard scoring strike. Devin Singletary was the face of the Florida Atlantic rushing attack with 108 yards and a pair of scores on 19 touches while Greg Howell Jr. totaled 63 yards on eleven totes.

North Texas are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous game and North Texas are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall and North Texas are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up win. Under is 5-0 in Florida Atlantic last 5 games in December and Florida Atlantic are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game and Florida Atlantic are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss. Home team is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings and under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. 

It’s going to be tough for Florida Atlantic to duplicate the first meeting that wasn’t close but for now I’ll back the Owls with Jeffrey Wilson out...
