Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

The Liberty Flames host the North Texas Mean Green in Saturday college football.

The North Texas Mean went to Arkansas in week three and throttled the Razorbacks 44-17 as a six point underdog. North Texas held a 376-336 yardage edge and picked off six passes in a surprisingly easy victory.

Mean Green quarterback Mason Fine connected on 24-45 for 281 yards and a touchdown with Jaelon Darden and Kelvin Smith catching five passes each for a combined 147 yards.

Lorn Easly was the UNT rushing attack with 68 yards and a trip to the end zone on 13 carries. North Texas also returned a punt for a score and had a pick six for 14 points altogether.

The Liberty Flames get back to football after Hurricane Florence postponed their game with Norfolk State in week three. Liberty is chomping at the bit to make amends for a 38-14 loss to Army in week two. Liberty was outgained 510-417 with three turnovers while the Black Knights rolled up 449 rushing yards.

Flames quarterback Stephen Calvert connected on 19-37 for 307 yards and a pair of touchdowns and an interception. Damian King topped the Liberty receiving corps with 172 yards on eight receptions and a score while Kentory Matthews totaled 81 rushing yards on nine touches.

Under is 4-0 in North Texas last 4 games following a straight up win and North Texas are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. Independent and under is 4-0 in North Texas last 4 road games. Liberty  are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game and are 4-0 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and are 12-0 ATS in their last 12 games following a straight up loss of more than 20 points. 

North Texas is far better team but this could be a let down spot. The Mean Green should still do plenty of scoring which has me looking at the over...

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
