North Texas has been solid offensively this season, but the Mean Green haven't beaten anybody yet this season. Indiana State has a victory over Indiana and took an explosive Ohio squad to overtime. The Sycamores can get hot from deep and really take the crowd out of it early. Until the Mean Green beat a team worth mentioning, it's hard to back them in a game where the line is so low. I'll lay the bucket with Indiana State knowing what I'm going to get.
