We have reached week eight of the college football season, and most teams are now playing in the conference portion of the season.
It’s a Conference USA showdown in Boca Raton, Florida.
The North Texas Mean Green make the trip to FAU Stadium to take on the Florida Atlantic Owls. North Texas has won the last four games played between the two teams.
North Texas Mean Green
The North Texas Mean Green have been going through a rebuild for what seems like has been forever. They come into this game with a 4-2 record.
Their two losses were against the SMU Mustangs and the Iowa Hawkeyes, both teams who have had good season so far this year.
The Mean Green come into this game on a three game winning streak. In two of those games they were the underdogs which make the wins even that more impressive.
For the Mean Green it’s all about the offensive production. They come into this game averaging 37.2 points and almost 500 yards of total offense per game.
To pull the upset in this game the offense is going to need to be really good again. The Mean Green’s defense isn’t very good at all, so the offense is going to have to make up for those shortcomings.
I would look for quarterback Mason Fine to be aggressive early and really try to push the tempo of the offense.
Florida Atlantic Owls
On the other side of this match up is the Florida Atlantic Owls who have had a very up and down season, but come into this game on a high.
They come into this game with a 3-3 record but a tough schedule to open the season, and the hurricane has given this team a lot of things to fight through.
The Owls come into this game on a two game winning streak, winning the last two games by scoring a ton of points. Last week in their game against Old Dominion they had no issue running up the score putting up 58 points.
For the Owls most of the success comes for this team on the ground. They come into this game putting up 258.7 yards per game on the ground.
To win this game though the defense is going to need to be the difference. They need to try and find a way to slow down the high powered offense of the Mean Green.

I think the Mean Green will have no issue running up the score against an Owls defense that has struggled at times.
It will be close, but when the final whistle blows the Mean Green will come out victorious.
