Instate rivals the North Texas Mean Green battle the UTSA Roadrunners in college Football Saturday.
The North Texas Mean Green weren’t exactly at the top of the list in college football before the season began but a 4-3 record has them fighting for a Bowl. The Mean Green have won back to back contests after slamming Army 35-18 as a 17.5 road dog. UNT was outgained 396-320 but forced a laughable seven turnovers including a pick six. North Texas quarterback Mason Fine connected on 9-17 for 118 yards and a touchdown and interception with Terian Goree and Willie Robinson combining for four receptions for 80 yards while Jeffrey Wilson was the rushing attack with 160 yards on 15 carries and three touchdowns.
The Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners appeared to be maneuvering for a college football Bowl somewhere but a blown 14 point lead and 52-49, four overtime loss to visiting UTEP was disheartening. When the smoke had cleared, the Roadrunners held a 525-444 advantage in real estate behind a run heavy attack. UTSA quarterback Dalton Sturm struggled with accuracy as he completed 18-34 for 214 yards and three touchdowns and an interception with Kerry Thomas Jr. catching five passes for 89 yards and a pair of scores. The Roadrunners were more productive on the ground with the trio of Jarveon Williams, Jalen Rhodes and Sturm combined for 272 yards on 51 carries.
North Texas are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and North Texas are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS win while North Texas are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game. The over is 4-0 in UTSA last 4 games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game and the over is 5-0 in UTSA last 5 games following a straight up loss while UTSA are 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing more than 280 yards passing in their previous game.
I think either team can win this and the records and numbers are meaningless in my view…
