North Texas has dropped all nine all-time meetings in this series, with each of those affairs taking place in Austin, which is important to consider when making your NCAA football picks in Week 1. The Mean Green have been outscored by a 148-7 combined margin in the last three meetings, while they’ve dropped their last 15 road openers versus BCS teams. The program is going to have a hard time reversing that trend due to welcoming back just nine overall starters. The OVER is 7-1 in the Mean Green’s last eight games versus Big 12 Conference opponents.

The Mean Green will be replacing their quarterback, a 1,000-yard rusher and their top two receivers offensively, while they also benefited from a plus-11 turnover margin in 2013. North Texas will rely heavily on its experienced front to move the football, as the group opens the year with 123 career starts—making it one of the best offensive lines nationally—not just in Conference-USA.
