The North Texas Mean are playing impressive football down the stretch, and they need one more win to become bowl eligible. It’s also senior day, so there are tons of motivation for North Texas here at home. With that said, the UTSA Roadrunners have been winning and covering machines all season, and it’s almost impossible to step in front of them. Also, North Texas relies heavily on its rushing attack that’s fourth in the country, but UTSA has a rush defense that’s 10th best in the country. I can’t bet against the Roadrunners with their track record.
