Southern Miss is 0-3 and the way things are going, on and off the field, they might be wishing the season was cancelled.
North Texas lost their game last week. So hopefully they have licked their wounds from their loss to SMU.
The line on this one is smaller than expected. Now is the time to hit it, unless you are hot on Southern Miss.
Southern Miss Golden Eagles
This was always going to be a weird season, but for the Golden Eagles, I don’t think you could have anticipated their coach resigning after just one game.
Southern Miss lost a close one to Louisiana Tech a couple of weeks ago but got absolutely spanked by Tulane last week. They lost 66-24 and it might have lingering effects.
The Golden Eagles are 0-3 even though they started with three home games. This is going to be their first road trip of the season.
In their loss last week Southern Miss was tied at 21 then outscored 43-3. That is hard to do in a half and an indicator of a team that is struggling with effort (and talent).
North Texas is not as good as Tulane but they are pretty well-coached and are just waiting for USM to spank them some more.
North Texas Mean Green
It is hard to know just what to make of North Texas just yet. Their lone win was over Houston Baptist, who is actually kind of good, if you ask Texas Tech.
So far they have played two sophomore quarterbacks, Austin Aune and Jason Bean. The numbers for both are almost identical.
In both their win and loss (SMU), the defense was not very impressive. The Mean Green gave up 32.5ppg last season and are at 48ppg so far.
Tre Siggers is a nice running back and their leading returning rusher. If he is healthy he could form a deadly duo with Oscar Addaway III who has run for over 100 yards in both games this season.

Free Week 5 NCAA Football Pick
This line is a shocker to me, perhaps I am missing something. It’s not that North Texas is good but Southern Miss looks like one of the worst teams in FBS right now.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: North Texas -1.5
Southern Miss can’t stop the run. They just gave up 430 yards on the ground against Tulane. I think we can count on North Texas to get half that. It would actually be below their seasonal average.
Backing Southern Miss this week, and this season falls into the gambling category. Maybe nobody is paying attention to this one which is why the number is what it is.
