Tulane minus 20 hosting North Texas

North Texas has the No. 1 rated offense in the American Athletic Conference. So why am I laying three touchdowns with Tulane?

Because the Mean Green offense is going to have problems on the road against Tulane’s defense, which ranks sixth in fewest rushing yards allowed and is eighth in sacks.

The 23th-ranked Green Wave also are capable of unleashing a ton of points against North Texas, which has one of the worst defenses in the country. The Mean Green rank last in run defense, sixth from the bottom in total defense and 122nd in scoring defense surrendering 35.5 points a game.

Michael Pratt is one of the best quarterbacks in the land and he has plenty of weapons to exploit North Texas, which lost, 58-21, to California. The Green Wave have the top-rated offense in the American Athletic Conference.

Tulane is an underrated power having won 17 of its last 20 games. Tulane coach Willie Fritz said his team has yet to play their best game. That’s a scary thought for North Texas.
