I’m leaning towards North Texas here. The Mean Green dominated the meetings in the regular season and were the much hotter team down the stretch. LA Tech did have a game to shake off the rust, but they needed overtime to get that one done and this North Texas defense isn’t something you want to be up against on a quick turnaround. Give me the Mean Green.
