Staff Prediction

In their previous matchup this season, UTSA edged out the home win by four points. UTSA finished undefeated in C-USA play while UNT fell @ UTSA and @ UAB. QB Austin Aune for UNT has thrown for 31 TDs this season but has thrown 11 INTs. Both offenses are very balanced and the only noticeable advantages are Frank Harris and the Roadrunners run defense. Containing Frank Harris is a near impossible task and he has really become a good passing QB this season. Zakhari Franklin is an icredible asset outside and this UTSA offense is full of explosiveness. With that being said, UNT has enough on their side to keep up with UTSA. Take the Mean Green to grind out the cover.

Pick: UNT -8.5
