kiffin_owls_cusa

The Florida Atlantic Owls have been perfect against Conference USA opponents this season with an 8-0 SU and 6-2 ATS record. With one more win on Saturday hosting the North Texas Mean Green, the Owls can lock up the Conference USA championship.

SHARK BITES

  • North Texas is 5-2 ATS in its last seven games on the road against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of North Texas’s last five games against Florida Atlantic.

Lane Kiffin has been a polarizing figure over the course of his coaching career, but there’s no denying the immediate impact his hire has made on the Owls. After going eight seasons without a winning record and three straight seasons at 3-9 SU, the Owls have run the table in conference play and are 9-3 SU and 8-4 ATS. Florida Atlantic is 1-4 SU in its last five games against North Texas.

North Texas has seen a similar return to success at 9-3 SU and 8-4 ATS this year after having just one winning season in its previous 12 seasons. The Mean Green are just 5-20 SU in their last 25 games on the road.

Jeffery Wilson, North Texas’s star starting running back, will be out of this game with an injury. The spotlight will be on Florida Atlantic’s Devin Singletary, who has rushed for 1,630 yards and 26 touchdowns this season.
