The North Texas Mean Green and Memphis Tigers face off on Saturday in a Week 2 college football showdown at the Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. 

North Texas comes into this game with a 2-2 record overall but they have been very inconsistent this season. In the last game against UNLV, North Texas scored 27 points but the defense was awful giving up 58 points, and that led to the defeat. Under center for North Texas is Austin Aune and he completed 17 of his 29 passes for 305 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. North Texas is averaging 31.8 points per game while their defense is giving up 36.5 points per game. In this game, the Mean Green are going to need the defense to be a whole lot better. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Memphis Tigers who sit with a 2-1 record overall and they have looked good the last two games. Memphis opened up the season with a 49-23 loss against Mississippi State, but they have since knocked off the Navy Midshipmen and Arkansas State Red Wolves. In the last game Memphis scored 44 points and that was enough to win by 12 points. Under center for Memphis is Sean Henigan and he completed 19 of his 28 passes for 360 yards and three touchdowns. Running back Jevyon Ducker rushed 10 times for 76 yards and a touchdown. 

North Texas is 0-5 against the spread in their last five games against the AAC. North Texas is 0-4 against the spread in their last four non-conference games. The over is 4-0 in Memphis last four games. The over is 4-0 in the Tigers last four games as a favorite. Memphis is 1-5 against the spread in their last 6 games after scoring more than 40 points in their previous game.

This game is going to be fast, and there is going to be a ton of scoring by both teams in this game. Memphis is averaging 34.7 points per game, and they are going to go over that number here against a Texas defense that has been awful. Memphis gave up 49 points in the first game and North Texas will also score plenty here. Back the over to cash here. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
