1. College Football News Preview 2020: North Texas Mean Green Win Total Prediction, What Will Happen
Was 2019 just a blip, or did the 4-8 run signal a slide as the Seth Littrell era rolls on?
Littrell got the program to a bowl game in his first three seasons, but as soon as the offense stopped putting huge numbers and points on a regular basis, the losses started to mount.
On the plus side, there were a whole slew of injuries and inconsistencies, and four of the losses were by a touchdown or less and were very, very winnable. It’s not fair to do this, but if just two of those flipped the other way, the team is 6-6, off to a bowl, and the season was a mere dip.
Set The North Texas Mean Green Regular Season Win Total At … 6.5
This year’s team needs the offensive line to crank up quickly, the quarterback situation has to be settled, and the defense has to be better and more consistent, but this is still a good enough program to expect nothing less than a bowl season.
Houston Baptist, Charlotte, at UTEP, Rice, at UTSA. Not all of those are layups like they were in past seasons, but winning at least four of those is a must.
Putt off a victory at home over a Louisiana Tech or Southern Miss, and pull off an upset somewhere on the road like at Middle Tennessee or UAB, and getting to six or seven wins shouldn’t be a problem.
At least, getting there had better not be a problem, or else the 2019 drop really wasn’t an aberration.
