The only real question concerning this game is whether or not the Florida Gators will be able to win by at least 37 points.
Gators head coach Jim McElwain led Florida to their largest win over an SEC team last week in the two years he has been at the school. It will be interesting to see how the Gators will play this week after coming off of such a large win.
Will the 23rd ranked team in the nation come out too laid back and not be able to cover the spread, or will they show up and dominate North Texas trying to prove they deserve to be ranked even higher?
During last season the Gators were known for playing really good one week, just to be horrible the next.
Being consistent is something they have yet to be able to do under coach McElwain.
North Texas Mean Green
North Texas is coming off of a 41-20 win last week over Bethune-Cookman.
They were able to put a game plan together that allowed the to gain 329 yards on the ground.
Quarterback Mason Fine only threw the ball for 108 yards in his first college game, but he was able to complete 50 percent of his passes and did not throw an interception.
The freshman was also able to rack up 46 yards on eight runs, including a scramble to avoid a sack for 25 yards.
After going through a few growing pains in the season opener against Massachusetts, the Gators were able to bust the offense wide open last week against the Kentucky Wildcats.
They were able to gain a total of 564 yards of total offense, the most in a game for Florida since playing Vanderbilt on Nov. 3, 2001.
Florida made some huge plays in the passing game, allowing them to snap a 10 game streak of being held under 30 points.
Quarterback Luke Del Rio was able to throw the ball for 320 yards and found the end zone four times.

The Florida Gators are coming off of their most convincing win in the Southeastern conference under coach McElwain Florida quarterback Luke Del Rio has been both developing and maturing with each game and has built some momentum.
North Texas looks to have a one sided offense and should not be a threat putting the ball in the air.
Free Week 3 NCAA Football Prediction
This might be one of those games that are over half way through the second quarter. It will be interesting to see just how high the Gators will run up the score before McElwain decides to put the brakes on the offense.
I won’t be surprised if the Florida backups also have success against the Mean Green.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Florida -36
This will be a great game for the Gators to keep building momentum as they get closer to their conference schedule.
Florida will be looking to move up as much as possible in the polls, so I am expecting the starters to run full throttle at least through the 3rd quarter.
But as I mentioned earlier, I expect the 2nd string offense to have luck moving the ball and believe they will score a touchdown or 2 themselves.
