The no. 22 ranked UTSA Roadrunners will be going for their 12th consecutive win when they face the North Texas Mean Green in their regular season finale on Saturday afternoon at Apogee Stadium in this Conference USA matchup.
The Roadrunners are coming off a 34-31 win over UAB as 3.5-point favorites. UTSA knocked off UAB in a close win last week that came down to the wire. Quarterback Frank Harris completed 25-of-36 passes for 323 yards with three touchdowns and zero interceptions.
UTSA is averaging 38.2 points per game. They average 263 passing yards and 176.6 rushing yards per game. UTSA has also played well defensively, giving up 20.1 points per game, which is tied for 22nd in the nation. The Roadrunners have also surrendered 336.8 yards of total offense per contest which ranks 29th in the country.
Quarterback Frank Harris has completed 67.2 percent of his passes for 2,629 yards, 23 touchdowns, and five interceptions.
The Mean Green of North Texas are coming off a 49-7 win over Florida International as 10-point favorites. Quarterback Austin Aune completed 6-of-12 passes for 219 yards and two touchdowns while DeAndre Toney rushed for 109 yards and two scores in the win.
North Texas is averaging 27.1 points per game. They are averaging 201.6 passing yards and 237.4 rushing yards per game. North Texas has struggled defensively, giving up 27.9 points per game.

The UTSA Roadrunners are 12-2 ATS in their last 14 road games and are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS loss.
The Mean Green are 3-14 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and are 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games as a home underdog.
I like for UTSA to come out and not only win, but cover this spread to finish their regular season. I see them winning this one as they are the higher powered offense by far. I see the Mean Green winning by at least 2 touchdowns in this one.
