North Texas vs. Incarnate Word - 9/8/18 College Football Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Recommended Posts

Incarnate Word can hang their hats on the fact they put up 30 points against an FBS team however, it’s still going be tough for the Cardinals to do much better than their 1-10 record last season if their defense can’t find ways to stop opposing offenses. North Texas is solid, experienced team with great offensive weapons and is the type of team I feel that no one is really going to want to play as they certainly have the potential to beat almost anyone if their defense is improved. North Texas was one of my favorite plays last week and as I imagine North Texas will be favored by about 30-35 points, my initial thoughts are to take Mean Green and also put a play on the over if that number isn’t too high.

Never thought I would read that written about little ol’ North Texas. Seems like the kind of thing that was written about 2005-2008 Boise, 2009-11 TCU/Utah.

Single game passing record for North Texas is I think 601 yards. I’m not saying that’s what going to happen because I don’t think Mason Fine will have to play the whole game but it would be cool to see some records broken.

Win the game, break records along the way.  I have the feeling that a lot of records will be broken this year not just by Mighty Fine but his teammates and the team as well.  GO EAGLES BEAT the Cardinals!!!!!

Harry I will have to get motivated to drive from SA to Denton to see the game. 30 to 35 pt win sound like a blow out. I did drive up three times last year  plus the Rice game.

      Graham Harrell (North Texas) – An All-American quarterback at Texas Tech from 2005-08, Harrell spent part of his career in Lubbock playing for Holgorsen, who was an assistant at TTU from 2000-07 and the Red Raiders’ co-offensive coordinator from 2005-07. After a stretch as a player in pro football, including three seasons with the Green Bay Packers (2010-12), Harrell got into coaching. He was the outside receivers coach at Washington State in 2014-15, where he worked under his old Texas Tech mentor Mike Leach. In 2016, he became the offensive coordinator and quarterback coach at North Texas. This past season he led a Mean Green offense that was 22nd in the FBS in scoring (36.4 points per game) and 15th in total yards (472.8 per game), as UNT finished 9-3. North Texas head coach Seth Littrell is rumored to be in line to replace Bill Snyder at Kansas State, so that could potentially influence Harrell’s decision.

      Three things to know before betting on the New Mexico Bowl:
      1. Over the last three seasons, the Mean Green are 0-7 against the spread when playing away from home against teams with a completion percentage of 58% or better. North Texas was also just 0-6 against the spread after games where it forced one or fewer turnovers this season, and covered in only one of its final eight games. Meanwhile, Utah State was an impressive 9-3 against the spread on the year. The Aggies came extremely close to playing in the Mountain West Championship Game, but were unable to earn a big road win against Boise State in the final week of the regular season. One issue this Utah State team is facing is the fact that Matt Wells will not be coaching in this one. Wells agreed to become the new head coach at Texas Tech, and he is bringing offensive coordinator David Yost with him. But Frank Maile—who will be in charge of this team until Gary Andersen comes back for his second stint with Utah State—knows that he’s best off not changing anything here. Wells’s up-tempo spread system is the reason Utah State was so good this year, and that is the team’s biggest advantage against North Texas.
