Pick

North Texas comes into this game as one of the best defensive teams in the country and they are a heavy favorite to win this game. Alcorn State had a very good regular season, but they are out matched in this game. The Braves don’t play much defense and they are going to have a ton of trouble finding open looks. I like North Texas to win in a blowout. 

David’s Pick North Texas -16.5
