Florida Atlantic Owls
The Owls have had an up and down season and are sitting at 5-5 overall going into the last two weeks of the season. As underdogs in this game, they will need a complete team performance if they are going to become bowl eligible.
As sporadic as their offense has played, the Owls rank 15th in total yards per game. They specifically have had success in the run game, with their 252 rushing yards per game on average. Look for the Owls to establish the run early in this game and then try to pick apart the Mean Green secondary with some deep balls down the field.
The Owls defense do not really do one specific thing very well. The Owls will need to especially step their pass defense up, as the Mean Green love to throw the ball. Look for the Owls to bring pressure all night to try and make the North Texas quarterback into making a mistake.
North Texas Mean Green
The Mean Green have a decent overall record at 8-3, but their conference record is only 3-3. The Mean have the opportunity to end the season with 10 wins an earn a trip to a decent bowl game.
The Mean Green offense have had most of their success through the air. They average 37.2 points per game on top of that and have proven they can be a high scoring offense. Their quarterback, Mason Fine, who has thrown for 3119 yards will be the key to a North Texas win.
The Mean Green defense matches up well with the Owls because their success on defense has come from stopping the run. If the Mean Green can shut down the run early, they will cruise to another win.
