Randy’s Free Pick
Louisiana Tech will have its chances here at home, as this team isn't a pushover despite a near .500 record. However, North Texas has been the same team each and every game regardless of where the game is played, and it's going to take more points for me to consider the Bulldogs. I'll lay the small chalk with the Mean Green.
