Let's have a look at our UAB vs North Texas Prediction.

Corey’s Free Pick

Both schools have struggled down the stretch of their first season’s in the AAC, but I do like the spot the hosts come into here. North Texas stuck with conference powers Tulane, Memphis, and fellow newcomer UTSA this season, so they’ve shown fight, and there’s a good chance they close the season on a strong note against a vulnerable UAB defense. The Blazers allowed less than 31 points for the first time since Week 1 last week against a struggling Temple team, so I like leaning on the Mean Green to simply handle business at home and send their seniors off right. Back North Texas this weekend.
