Pick

UAB comes into this game on a seven game winning streak and they have won 11 of their last 12 games. North Texas has won three games in a row and 11 of their last 12 games. North Texas did defeat UAB twice during the regular season by margins of 3 and 9 points. UAB definitely has the offensive advantage in this game, but they will be playing one of the best defensive teams in the country. I am going to take North Texas in this game, as they have allowed 50 points or fewer in three straight games.
