We have reached week eight of the college football season and this is a Conference USA showdown.
In this game the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders make the trip to Denton, Texas to take on the North Texas Mean Green. The Blue Raiders have won the last two games played between the two teams.
Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders
The Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders knew coming into the season it was going to be tough to season and so far that has been the case.
They have been underdogs in all but one game, and so far this season they only have two wins. Two games ago they went to Marshall, a very place to play and the defense locked down giving up only 13 points and that led to a victory.
In their last game the offense went back to really struggling putting up only 13 points against FAU and that led to the loss.
The Blue Raiders actually haven’t been bad at moving the ball averaging over 380 yards per game but they have had issues cashing in for touchdowns.
This is a tough battle and they can’t be settling for field goals in this game if they want to come away with the big upset.
North Texas Mean Green
On the other side of this matchup is the North Texas Mean Green who had high expectations coming into the season but they have had issues closing out games and it has led to them winning only two games.
The offense has been good averaging 32 points per game, but the defense has been an issue giving up 32.8 points per game.
At quarterback the Mean Green are led by Mason Fine who has thrown for 1,510 yards, 14 touchdowns, and four interceptions. He has looked good but late in games at times he has struggled, and that can’t happen in this game.
On the defensive side the Mean Green need to be good. They aren’t facing a great offensive team so they can’t make them look elite.
