The red hot Bulldogs will look to add to their 5 game winning streak while North Texas looks to build on their 4 wins after going just 1-11 a year ago.
The Bulldogs won last season’s matchup 56-13 at home but North Texas is certainly an improved team from 2015.
Louisiana Tech Bulldogs
Week after week, Ryan Higgins puts up huge numbers and leads the Bulldogs to victories. What the team may lack on the defensive side of the ball is made up for by its offense.
Higgins has thrown for 26 touchdowns and just 3 interceptions this season and the Bulldogs are averaging 54 points per game over their last 4 games.
Their defense has looked better in the last three games but the job is much easier on them when the offense is producing the way it is.
Plus, pressure gets put on the opposing offense when the Bulldogs continue to score at will.
The Bulldogs are 2nd in the FBS in passing yards per game and 7th in the FBS in points per game. They could be tested a bit though by a Mean Green defense that is only allowing 203 passing yards per game.
In last season’s contest, the Bulldogs used their rushing attack led by Kenneth Dixon – now in the NFL – to beat the Mean Green by 43 points. In defending the run game, they limited North Texas to just 2.3 yards per carry.
With UTSA on Louisiana Tech’s schedule next week, they won’t be looking ahead. The only thing stopping the Bulldogs from covering the spread would be their defense but even that hasn’t slowed them of late.
North Texas Mean Green
The inconsistent play of quarterback Mason Fine has in turn led to the Mean Green’s offensive inconsistency.
They have scored over 35 points on 4 occasions this season but have scored 17 or fewer in 3 of their other games.
Fine has thrown the ball well at certain times while also displaying the ability to tuck the ball and run with it.
He has an 80 yard rushing touchdown to his name and a few other solid rushing performances but overall on the year is only averaging 1.3 yards per carry.
Fine has been the model of inconsistency all season long but part of that comes from the defense he is facing. The Louisiana Tech defense is not very good so this could be a good opportunity for Fine to figure out what he is capable of.
North Texas will need him too for sure because they will be challenged in slowing down Higgins and one of the best passing offenses in the nation.
You can’t like North Texas’s chances of pulling this upset but Fine may be able to do enough to put some points on the board.

Free Week 10 NCAA Football Prediction
Higgins is one of the best passers in the FBS and he has to be effective to make up for the Bulldog’s poor defense. North Texas could find some offensive consistency in this matchup.

Similar to last week, I like the Bulldogs to do the majority of the work in getting this game to go over the total. Tough to trust their defense to cover 3 touchdowns on the road.
