Western Kentucky has been rolling through Conference USA recently and can’t afford any hiccups against one of the bottom teams in the league.
North Texas has taken steps forward from last season but still has work to do to compete with the top dogs of the sneakily strong Conference USA.
North Texas Mean Green
The offensive inconsistency continued last week for the Mean Green and the 10 penalties they committed certainly didn’t help.
They were only able to accumulate 289 yards of total offense and failed to capitalize on the normally explosive Louisiana Tech offense falling stagnant in the second half.
The Mean Green have struggled against the run but will be up against one of the more well-rounded offenses in the nation in Western Kentucky.
In last season’s matchup at North Texas, they gave up 35 first downs, 56 points, and 683 yards of total offense in the 55-28 loss.
27 is a large deficit but by those first down and yard numbers, it could have been much worse.
Despite the graduation of quarterback Brandon Doughty from that Hilltopper offense, their playcaller in Mike White has almost better.
Jeffrey Wilson has rushed for 833 yards and 13 touchdowns but the explosiveness in the Mean Green offense drops off significantly from there.
Western Kentucky Hilltoppers
Led by Mike White and running back Anthony Wales, the Hilltoppers are rolling right now.
Western Kentucky has won four straight and five of their last six while averaging 51 points per game over that 6 games stretch.
The defense has been decent over that stretch but it hasn’t mattered much the way their offense is playing.
They have tons of weapons with Wales having totaled 17 touchdowns as well as receivers Taywan Taylor and Nicholas Harris each picking up 10 touchdowns.
White has been spreading the ball out too with 6 players having double digit receptions on the season and 14 different players recording a catch.
This matchup will be about whether or not the Hilltoppers overlook the Mean Green. However, that has frequently been a trap the Hilltoppers run into on the road over the past few seasons – not at home.
The Western Kentucky defense should be able to mostly neutralize a very inconsistent Mean Green offense.
White and his weapons should be able to do their thing as I like the Hilltoppers to control this game wire to wire.

Western Kentucky has been struggling ATS lately which is likely contributing to this spread being under 30 but I like them in this game to take off early and dominate the whole game.

Even better then the full game, I like the Hilltoppers to cover first quarter and first half. They have been getting out to hot starts and putting up bunches of points early on.
