Both of these programs just completed their fifth season in Conference USA, joining from the Sun Belt. For both programs this is their first appearance in the title game so they are already enjoying successful seasons
Their profiles could not be more different though. Thanks to coach Lane Kiffin the Owls have been omnipresent in college football conversations all season long. The Mean Green have been keeping a low profile.
North Texas Mean Green
I didn;t mention it in the intro but these teams met during the regular season and North Texas was dominated losing 69 to 31. It was the last time they lost this season as they return to Boca on a five game wining streak.
In that loss they turned the ball over three times. Mason Fine has enjoyed a “fine” season and if he makes fewer mistakes this should not be another blowout. Top receiver Jalen Guyton is questionable.
North Texas is not a strong defensive team. They have consistently given up a lot of yards and points which is why it is important for them not to give up any possessions to turnovers and such. They have a better chance if this is not a shootout.
It seems like Kiffin is always going to be a lightning rod but there is no doubting that he is also a good coach. If they win on Saturday it will be the first time the Owls have had a season with 10 victories. That is why his name is always going to be out there for other programs.
That and the fact that he is really good at coaching offense. FAU is 10th in scoring and shockingly doing it more on the ground than through the aid. Kiffin is an innovator and really good at working with what he has.
The defense is more middle of the pack giving up just 25ppg, a figure that is pretty good for Conference USA. Having already beaten North Texas the way they have the Owls will be very confidence heading into this one.

The number on this one is not saying blowout but it is saying easy win. Lane has proven he is not the type to ease off the gas which will help favourite backers.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Over 74
If you didn’t notice the previous matchup zoomed over this total. Even if the points are a little more equitably distributed in this game I like the odds of the same thing happening. Both teams will definitely score more than 30 which is a nice place to start.
The number is solid but it might fluctuate if we hear any rumours about Kiffin that could affect the Owls. Both teams should be highly motivated and look for fireworks early.
