The North Texas Mean Green and Louisiana Tech Bulldogs clash Saturday in week 7 C-USA college football game from Apogee Stadium.

The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs will try to get back to .500 after improving to 2-3 on the year after a 41-31 win over UTEP last time out.

Austin Aune has thrown for 1,496 yards, 15 touchdowns and 7 interceptions on 56.3% passing while Ayo Adeyi and Oscar Adaway III have combined for 850 rushing yards and 5 touchdowns.

Louisiana Tech is 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 conference games while the over is 7-0 in their last 7 games following a win. North Texas is 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games overall and 5-15 ATS in their last 20 games following a win while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall.

This is a hard game to call from a side perspective, but I love the over in this game. Neither team can play a lick of defense right now and both are in the bottom 10 in the country coming into this game in terms of scoring defense. I think this has potential to be one of those 42-35 kind of games whichever way you have it going, so give me the over here.
