Both of these teams come into this game after losing in their conference championship games, but will have the opportunity to finish the season with a victory here. North Texas had a great offensive year, but their defense was really bad and is allowing 31.5 points per game. Boise State was very good on defense and really improved on the offensive side as the season progressed. North Texas’ offense should be able to keep them in this game and I like them with the points.
