The North Texas Mean Green and Miami Redhawks face off on Thursday in a college football showdown at the Frisco Football Classic at the Toyota Stadium.
North Texas comes into this game with a 6-6 record overall but they have won five games in a row. In the last game against UTSA the offense was strong scoring 45 points and that led to the 22 point victory. North Texas has had a strong running game all season and in the last three games there were three different rushers who had 77 yards on the ground. Quarterback Austin Aune completed 10 of his 17 passes for 116 yards. North Texas is averaging 28.6 points while their defense is giving up 27.5 points per game. The Mean Green are averaging 246.2 yards per game on the ground. DeAndre Torrey has been the top running back rushing for 1,215 yards and 13 touchdowns.
On the other side of this matchup is the Miami Redhawks who sit with a 6-6 record and they have won two of their last three games. After back-to-back wins against Buffalo and Bowling Green, they lost to Kent State 48-47. They forced overtime in that game, but couldn’t get the job. Miami is averaging 29.08 points per game while their defense is giving up 23.83 points per game. The Redhawks have a more balanced attack on offense, and they are averaging 143 yards per game on the ground. Under center for Miami is Brett Gabbert who has thrown for 2,418 yards, 24 touchdowns, and six interceptions.
North Texas is 6-0 against the spread in their last six games overall. North Texas is 5-0 against the spread in their last five games following an against the spread win. Miami is 5-0 against the spread in their last five games played on a neutral site. The over is 4-0 in North Texas’s last four games played on Thursday. The under is 6-0 in Miami’s last six games in December.
I don’t see a whole lot of defense being played in this game. These are both offenses that have a ton of confidence heading into this game, and there is going to be no shortage of scoring in this game. Look for this game to be a shootout, and the over will cash.
