North Texas Mean Green Player Celebrates

Friday, September 30, 2016 9:16 PM GMT

Our Expert Capper Drew Martin analyzes this CUSA Cross Division Offensive Showdown between Middle Tennessee and North Texas. This one should be a barnburner, and he's got an exclusive College Football Pick.

Middle Tennessee St vs North Texas

The Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders are led by their sophomore quarterback Brent Stockstill who is the reigning CUSA Freshman of the Year. He is also the head coach's son and is progressing at warp speed through his reads and progressions. MTSU runs one of the most up-tempo high-powered offenses in the country. The Blue Raiders are among the nation's fastest teams in terms of tempo, averaging snapping the ball 21 seconds in between plays.

The North Texas Mean Green are coming off of their second win of the season and have very much impressed this season. Head coach Seth Littrell is in his first year and has implemented an extreme up-tempo offense that is among the tops in the nation in terms of pace per play. The Mean Green are snapping the ball under 21 seconds between plays. Which is even more respectable considering they have had to play on the road two of their first four games including a trip to the swamp to face a Will Muschamp built defense. UNT's offense has also gotten a spark from their true freshman QB Mason Fine. He is an under-recruited kid from Oklahoma. The former two-time Oklahoma Gatorade Player of the year, but due to his size, he was passed up by the major football powerhouses. The 5'11 170 pound QB threw for over 13,000 yards and 160 touchdowns in high school.

The pace of play is going to be there on Saturday. If North Texas can keep progressing behind their young athletic QB and put it in the end zone a couple times on this Blue Raider defense, we should get enough to clear this total. With clear skies and minimal wind in Denton Texas on Saturday, my college football pick is a wager on the over of 63.
