Expect this at the End of this weekend's matchup.
Looks like Saturday's 11:20 am central time game might be a bit of a blowout. The North Texas Mean Green will be making their way to Bryant-Denny stadium from Denton, Texas, in order to face the #4 ranked team in the nation, you very own Alabama Crimson Tide. The 1-1 Mean Green will be at a loss of the quarterback spot after Redshirt freshman Riley Dodge had a shoulder injury in last week's game. Here are some stats for you . . .
North Texas has been outscored 297-23 in five games against top-10 teams since 2004!!!
North Texas has never beaten a Top 25 ranked team.
When the 2 teams last met in 2002, Alabama laid a whopping 33 points to 7 in a victory over the Mean Green.
The ground attack accounted for 115 yards on 40 attempts for North Texas, a tiny average of 2.9 yards per carry. That just will not cut it against Alabama's defense with Orlando McClain and Terrance Cody looking for the run.
Greg McElroy completed a school-record 14 consecutive passes before finishing 18 of 24 for 241 yards and a touchdown, showing he might have what it takes to be Alabama's starting quarterback after week 1 poor performance.
Do not expect Bama to lose focus on this one, especially considering that SEC play begins following this matchup with North Texas. I think despite the numbers, Bama will go out hitting hard, so buckle up cowgirls!
I want to know what you guys think the score will be, so post a comment with your predictions about this Saturday's clash.
