Two Texas teams from the Conference USA will be squaring off in a Friday Night matinee as the UTEP Miners will traveling to Denton, Texas to take on the North Texas Mean Green. North Texas suffered their second straight defeat as they were beaten 42-31 at home last Thursday. UTEP had their third straight game postponed due to COVID but they were slated to face Southern Miss at home last Friday. The Mean Green boasts a 15-8-3 edge in the series between these two teams and has won the three consecutive meetings.
UTEP has had five of their last six games postponed or canceled due to COVID-19 issues, including three straight coming into this contest. The Miners are 3-4 on the year overall and stand 0-3 in conference play after getting crushed by UTSA in their last actual game.
Sophomore QB Gavin Hardison is 108 of 199 passing for 1,419 yards with five touchdowns and five interceptions this season. The offense has had a hard time of finding continuity with most of their games being moved around this season with COVID ripping through Texas.
The Miners are 81st in the nation in passing offense with an average of 211.1 yards per game this season. UTEP stands 109th in rushing offense as they pick up 115.7 yards per contest on the year. The Miners are just 108th of 127 FBS teams to see action this season in scoring offense as they muster up 20.1 points a game.
Defensively, the Miners surrender 29 points per game which is good for the 64th best mark in the country.
North Texas Mean Green
The Mean Green now looks to get back in the win column after suffering their second straight defeat. Even though they are at home they will be the visiting team in their own stadium for this game.
Junior quarterback Jason Bean has struggled over the last two weeks and will try to get right against a pitiful UTEP defense. Bean has completed 58 of 108 passes for 880 yards with 12 touchdowns and four interceptions. Three of his four interceptions have come in the last two games where the Mean Green took the loss. He also has 343 rushing yards this season and five touchdowns on the ground.
The Mean Green enters this game 25th in the FBS with a passing offense of 282.6 yards per game on the season. North Texas is 12th in the nation in rushing offense with 235.4 yards per game. The Mean Green is 29th in scoring offense with an average of 33.9 points per contest.
The North Texas defense isn’t too impressive this season. They are ranked 124th out of 127 teams in the country this season and have surrendered over 41 points a game this season. They are allowing opponents to gain 511 yards from scrimmage this season and that is the second-worst mark in all of college football.

Free Week 15 NCAA Football Prediction:
I like North Texas and the points in this game. UTEP has one of the worst three defenses in the country and allowing opponents to score over 40 points per game. Even though the Mean Green is much better defensively I don’t think the UTEP offense will be able to keep up with the explosiveness of the North Texas attack. Give me the Mean Green to roll in this one and bounce back after two straight losses.
