I really don't see a blow out. One big thing, they normally recruit better which means better athletes for the most part and more depth. Two statistical observations: Not including King's rushing stats, Houston still rushed for over 100 yards against all of their opponents (including Oklahoma). UNT is ranked 94th in Rush Defense (177.5 YPG). Good news for UNT is that Houston is ranked 108 in rush defense (199.5YPG) so if Siggers runs hard (which he will), he will have a field day. Also, Tune isn't bad. He was a freshmen last year and has some games under his belt which makes him a wildcard. He could be just average (looking at you CAL QB) but if the Houston receivers are big and physical, our secondary is toast. Let's not have a repeat of SMU where expectations were ridiculous and we missed the obvious signs of transfers/recruits that are sometimes just faster/more athletic. I don't think Houston's locker room will be as fractured as some people think. All that being said, this feels like UNT's game to lose. I just think overall, UNT has a defense that MIGHT be figuring some things out and an offense that has figured themselves out. Houston just lost their offensive identity and the defense is just as porous as UNT's.
Give me UNT 34-24
