We have finally reached week one of the college football season with a full plate of games. The best part of a new season is that every team feels like they can have a good season, and that this is the season where they can reach all their goals.
One of the games to take place in week one takes place at Apogeee Stadium in Denton, Texas. The Lamar Cardinals come to town to take on the North Texas Mean Green.
This is the first meeting between the teams in recent history.
The Lamar Cardinals are an FCS division school that competes in the Southland conference. Last year was a very disappointing year for the Cardinals finishing with a 3-8 record and 8th place in the Southland conference.
This seems like another building year for the Cardinals. Not many have high expectations for this season, and they are expected to finish near the bottom of the Southland conference.
The biggest issue this team is going to run into not only in this game, but most of the season is how young they are. They only return 13 starters this year, and only two of those guys have over two years of experience.
There is going to be a lot of young guys thrust into the fire early and that will cause a lot of growing paints for this team, especially in this first game with a lot of guys playing in their first college football game.
To win this game they are going to need to play well on the offensive end of the field. That is a place where they really struggled last year, and that is going to have to change if they want something to be different in this one.
North Texas Mean Green
The North Texas Mean Green have been in a rebuild for the last few years, but they hope this is the year they they finally see all the positive results from the rebuild.
Last year they finished with a 5-8 record and 4th place in the C-USA West. The biggest improvement last year wasn’t in the wins and losses though, it was in how the offense improved.
They averaged 25 points per game, which was still 117th in the nation, but it was a big step forward for a team that the previous years couldn’t get anything going on the ground or through the air.
On the defensive side of the ball they also improved last year, but still have a lot of improvements to do. The strength of the defense is in the secondary.
In games they were solid last year it was because the defense was doing a good job of slowing down the opponents.

I think North Texas will get off to a good start in this one, especially throwing the ball through the air.
I think that they will attack a Lamar defense that really struggled last year and that will lead to a pretty simple victory.
