It’s an all Texas showdown on Saturday night at the Gerlad J. Ford Stadium in University Park, Texas. The North Texas Mean Green will make the trip to take on the Southern Methodist University Mustangs.
Both of these teams will look to move to 2-0 in this game. These two teams have faced off 35 times in their history and North Texas has only won five of those games.
In last years match up the Mustangs won 35-21.
North Texas Mean Green
The North Texas Mean Green almost mad a bowl game last year, but couldn’t get the crucial win in their final weeks and ended with a 5-7 record.
This year they got off on the right foot though beating the FCS School Lamar Cardinals by a final score of 59-14. Although it didn’t tell a lot about the team it was a good confidence booster, and it also made it so they only need five more wins to get back to a bowl game.
The Mean Green’s offense is all about the rushing attack and that was the huge key in game one. They gained a total of 670 yards and 438 of those were on the ground.
Jeffrey Wilson was the leader of that rushing attack putting up 176 yards on just 12 attempts. He also had three total touchdowns on the day.
To win this game they are just going to need the rushing game going. Historically they have had trouble rushing against SMU and if that’s the case in this game, it could spell trouble early.
On the other side of this match up is the SMU Mustangs who also played an FCS level school to kick off their season, and it was a blowout.
They played Stephen F Austin and they won by a final score of 58-14. They jumped out to a 35-0 lead before they were even able to get on the board.
Offensively it’s hard to really know what they have off that one game though, because they went to the subs so early in the game.
On the defensive side of the ball the Mustangs were really good though. They only allowed 219 yards all game, and only 75 of those were on the ground.
To win this game the Mustangs need to keep up that strong defense, and find a way to stop the run. The Mean Green aren’t a great threat through the air so the Mustangs really need to key in on the run first and foremost.

The Mustangs will find a way to slow down the running game, and the Mean Green won’t know what to do. The Mustangs offense will get in a groove early and the lead the team to a victory that covers the spread.
