We have reached week five of the college football season and most teams have now entered the part of their schedule where conference play takes place.
This match up is a Conference USA match up.
The North Texas Mean Green make the trip to Hattiesburg, Mississippi to take on the Southern Miss Eagles. Last year when the two teams faced off The Mean Green won by a final score of 29-23
North Texas Mean Green
The North Texas Mean Green have played a tough schedule so far, but have fared decent in it coming into this game with a 2-2 record.
The one thing we have learned from four games with the Mean Green is that they have a good offense, and they don’t really care a ton about playing defense.
They come into this game having scored 37 points per game but have given up 35 points per game. They need to try and play better defense as the rest of the season comes on if they want to continue to have success this year, and be a factor in the Conference USA final standings.
The Mean Green are led on the offensive side of the ball by Mason Fine who has played really well so far at the quarterback position.
He has thrown for 1076 yards and eight touchdowns. He has thrown three interceptions which is a little high but expected when you play the likes of Iowa.
To win this game it all comes down to the defensive side of the ball. They need to find a way to slow down the Golden Eagles, and they can’t expect they will win a game that is played up in the 40’s.
I would expect the Mean Green to come out and really try to blitz a lot in this game and try to put some pressure on the backfield.
Southern Miss Golden Eagles
On the other side of this match up is the Southern Miss Golden Eagles who have had a really impressive season so far this year.
Their only loss so far came in their first game at the hands of the Kentucky Wildcats, and in that game they only lost by a touchdown.
In the last two games they have dominated scoring a total of 73 points and only giving up 17 of them. In this game that defense is going to be tested though against a Mean Green team that has no issue putting up points.
If they can hold the Mean Green under 17 points total that would be quite the accomplishment and probably open up a lot of eyes around college football.
On the offensive side of the ball they need to get out to a fast start. The Mean Green haven’t been able to stop anyone this season and the Golden Eagles need to attack that weakness early.
