  1. I gotta admit If we p (ACU) had UTEP or Rice or UTSA or maybe Western KY for our CUSA opponent I’d feel a lot better about our chances. The Mean Green was the UTEP of the conference not that long ago. What y’all have done since the Portland State debacle year is pretty amazing. Kudos to Seth Littrell and all the coaches and players who have transformed your program. I’m counting on the game being closer than some of y’all imagine but you are rightly listed as a three TD favorite.
  2. 5 dimes has a betting line for this game. It started at UNT -19 1/2 and has gradually become wider. This morning it is UNT -22 1/2. https://www.5dimes.eu/news/odds/Football/College/
  3. UTEP plays a really bad Houston Baptist team and should win easily. UIW and UTSA could be a close game.
  4. FCS teams win against FBS opponents about 10% of the time. Some years a little less. Some years a little more. Just often enough to keep FCS teams dreams of an upset alive.
  5. Fortunately coach Dorrel is quite a bit smarter than me. He’s probably figured out it’s still Seth Littrell’s team. 🙂
  6. ACU is 6-1 against the spread when playing FBS teams in the past seven UNT 48-ACU 31
  7. Tapes from Eastern Washington should give ACU some idea about schemes if not personnel.
  8. ACU was only allotted 700 tickets which are long gone. Most of my friends bought theirs from Stub Hub or another reseller. Some are planning to buy walk up tickets on game day,
  9. The betting line has moved to 20.5. This seems about right to me. I don’t know how the writer defines “scaring” UNT. Maybe he meant UNT fans who bet on The Mean Green and spot ACU 20.5 points should be scared of losing their money. ACU is 6-1 since transitioning to FCS vs the betting line when playing FBS opponents but only 1-6 in actual wins. It should be an entertaining game if you like lots of touchdowns. ACU has the offensive weapons to keep the game closer than a lot of UNT fans imagine. While I don’t think ACU is a serious threat to pull out a W unless UNT has a really bad day, the Wildcats could well cost you some money if you bet on UNT -20.5. The better bet for this game is the 58 point over/under. The over looks like a good call here since both teams are capable of scoring points and neither is known for stellar defense. UNT 48-ACU 31
  10. 5dimes has UNT as a 19 1/2 point favorite with a 58 point over/under. ACU is 6-1 vs the spread against FBS schools since we started the migration up from D2. 19 1/2 sounds about right. Despite our record against the spread I’m more comfortable with the over in this game than the spread. Everyone on both sides of the field knows what UNT can do on offense, What you may not know is that ACU has the weapons on offense to put up points as well. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see 70+ points scored in this game.
  11. Thanks for the visit to our site and the invite to chat with you about how our team matches up with the Mean Green. Let’s face it FCS teams don’t have a stellar record when playing FBS teams that aren’t in the bottom 10. A game against a FCS team like ours with a middling record doesn’t generate much fan interest. That said, You are welcome to come on over to our site and share your thoughts if so inclined. Our goal in past years in games like this has been to beat the line. We’ve managed to do that about 75% of the time against the likes of Baylor, Air Force, Colorado State and Fresno State. The betting line for this game hasn’t been posted but the Mean Green will probably be favored by 28 or so points. At a minimum we plan to beat the line whatever it may be, to score more than the 27 points we put on the board against Baylor in last year’s opener, and to collect a guarantee check to help subsidize our athletics program. Many of us us believe we have the talent to do more than meet these minimal expectations. What can I say? It’s the summer. A perfect time for delusions of grandeur before the first snap of fall practice begins and reality bites.
  12. Jared did a stellar job for ACU. He’s one of several connections between ACU and UNT. Riley Mayfield played for ACU before grad transferring to UNT. When we were searching for a new HC two years ago our search committee contacted Graham Harrell, who has deep ACU family connections. He said no thanks, but Wren Baker suggested Adam Dorrel from NW Missouri who eventually became our HC. Those of us from ACU are looking forward to playing the Mean Green. We like the money and a chance to play on a bigger stage than normal. Who know we might even score a few points against you.
