A pair of 6-6 teams will meet each other in a bowl game when the North Texas Mean Green take on the Miami Ohio RedHawks at the Frisco Football Classic.

This will be the first ever meeting between these two programs.

Not many teams in college football ended their season as hot as North Texas. After starting the year off 1-6, they won five straight games to close out the year including a 45-23 win over UTSA, who would go on to win the conference championship.

Miami Ohio had an up-and-down season, but they finished the year off with a close 48-47 loss to Kent State.

Frisco Football Classic Prediction and Pick

Both teams offenses will have a good stylistic matchup against the opposing defenses, so I like the OVER in this game.

North Texas runs the ball on 61.33% of plays, which is the 13th highest rate in the country. Miami is 76th in opponent yards per carry, allowing an average of 4.3. Kent State averaged 5.9 yards per rush against them in their last game.

Meanwhile, Miami Ohio throws the ball on 51.39% of plays which is the 38th highest mark in the country, and North Texas has a weak secondary, giving up 7.9 yards per opponent pass attempt which is 95th in college football.

The point spread is a coin flip in my opinion, so I’ll take the over given how the strengths and weaknesses of each team adds up.

Pick: OVER 54.5
