The North Texas Mean Green and UAB Blazers face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Legion Field.
North Texas hasn’t found a whole lot of success this season, but they are coming off a big win in their last game against Middle Tennessee. In the last game North Texas was 3.5 point underdogs but that wasn’t much of a concern as they came away a 52-35 victory. The offense has actually been pretty good most of the season , but their defense has let them down. On the season North Texas is averaging 39.2 points per game while the defense is giving up 44.2 points per game. At quarterback, North Texas is led by Austin Aune who has thrown for 1233 yards, eight touchdowns, and four interceptions. In this game the defense is going to need to find a way to step up.
On the other side of this matchup is the UAB Blazers who looked pretty good at the beginning of the season, but as of late, they have been struggling as of late losing each of their last two games. In the last game against Louisiana Tech, they were 12 point favorites but they lost 37-34. The defense hasn’t really been an issue for the most of the season so it was a bit shocking giving up 37 points. On the season, UAB is averaging 30.4 points per game and they are a run first team averaging 206.7 yards per game on the ground. At quarterback, UAB is led by Bryson Lucero and turnovers have been an issue for him throwing eight interceptions.
North Texas is 1-10 against the spread in their last 11 games against teams with a winning record. North Texas is 6-20 against the spread in their last 26 games overall. UAB is 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games in November. UAB is 18-7-1 against the spread in their last 26 home games.
UAB’s defense didn’t look good in the last game and North Texas is going to run up the score in this game. Look for plenty of scoring by both teams and for this game to go well over the posted total
