This game will be Louisiana Tech’s last shot at making a run at the Conference USA West division title. North Texas on the other hand could really put a stranglehold on the division lead with a win here.
Both teams would also like to earn a win here to increase their chances towards grabbing a bowl bid – although it appears likely for both regardless of this result.
North Texas Mean Green
After a sub .500 season last year in both conference play and all of regular season play, the Mean Green are not only poised for a bowl bid but they own a one game lead in the West division of Conference USA and have wins over the two teams closest to them.
Louisiana Tech is another team that is chasing them so a win over them would really put the Mean Green in the driver’s seat.
North Texas’s lone conference loss was at the hands of the Lane Kiffin led FAU Owls who managed to score on their first 11 possessions against North Texas.
Other than that though, North Texas has utilized a consistent offensive attack to lead them to 4 other conference victories.
They are averaging 37.4 points and 484.4 yards per game this season and the improved quarterback play of Mason Fine has been the main reason.
Fine struggled last season but is completing 64 percent of his passes and has thrown 17 touchdowns to just 8 interceptions.
2 of those 8 interceptions came in their blowout loss to FAU when they were scrambling to come back for the entire game and Fine threw a season high 47 passes.
Senior tailback Jeffery Wilson has also chipped in – averaging 6.5 yards per carry and reaching the end zone 11 times on the season. The combination of Fine and Wilson has made the North Texas offense quite dangerous and should again this week on the road.
Louisiana Tech Bulldogs
At 4-4 overall and 2-2 in the conference, this is a key turning point in the season for the Bulldogs. They have been competitive in every game except for a blowout loss to Mississippi State. Their other three losses are by a combined 9 points.
The Bulldogs did struggle defensively last week against one of the nation’s worst offenses in Rice. They allowed 28 points and needed 14 points in the final minute to win 42-28.
Their struggle on defense can’t afford to carry over this week against a balanced North Texas attack.
The Louisiana Tech offense has been nowhere near as explosive as last season so any defensive struggle this week won’t be covered up like it would’ve been last season.
The run game and passing game have both been inconsistent – forcing the Bulldogs into many close games. While they have plenty of experience in closes games this season, the results have been mixed.
Being at home should help the Bulldogs, but if they struggle early on defensively like last week, they could find themselves scrambling to come back against a solid North Texas team.

Free Week 10 NCAA Football Pick
Fine and Wilson have really made this North Texas offense dynamic and dangerous. They don’t have the same talent on the other side of the ball though. I see the Mean Green winning but I think they will find themselves in a shootout.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Over 67.0
This is an important conference game for both teams but both teams don’t seem to be putting themselves in good spots because of their defense. This score should get going quickly and end up over the betting total.
