UL Lafayette at North Texas (3.5, OFF)

WEATHER: Forecasts are calling for temperatures in the high-70s with sunny skies. Winds will blow out of the south at 16 mph.

1. Ragin’ Cajuns RB Alonzo Harris ran for 123 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries to help Louisiana-Lafayette pile up 294 rushing yards in a 41-13 victory over Tulane on Oct. 6. The Cajuns rushed for 87 yards in the first quarter and finished the contest averaging 5.5 a carry.

2. UNT is coming off a 44-21 defeat at the hands of Houston on Oct. 6 to drop to 2-4 on the campaign. The Mean Green had previously lost games to nationally ranked teams Kansas State and LSU.

3. UNT’s secondary was almost completely wiped out by graduation after the 2011 season. Seven of the eight players in the unit were seniors. The Mean Green ranks second in the Sun Belt in both pass efficiency defense and interceptions despite its lack of experience in the back this season.

4. UL-Lafayette kicker Brett Baer scored 11 points against Tulane to move into sixth place on the career scoring chart with 201 points. Baer continues to lead the nation in field goals (2.4/game) while ranking seventh in scoring (11/6 ppg).

5. The Cajuns have come back to even the all-time series with North Texas at eight games by winning six of the last seven meetings, including five straight.

6. After allowing Tulane to gain just 53 yards rushing on 22 carries, the Ragin' Cajuns have moved up to 18th nationally in rush defense. In five games, UL has held its opponents to 107.2 yards rushing per game, including less than 70 yards in all four of its wins.

7. Brandin Byrd, Antoinne Jimmerson and Jeremy Brown drive a three-pronged UNT rushing attack that ranks sixth in the Sun Belt with an average of 175.2
rushing yards per game.

8. The Mean Green ranks ninth out of 10 teams in the league in completion percentage at 55.3 percent and has been dreadful in the red zone. UNT has converted on only 14 of its 20 trips into the scoring zone and has only managed 11 touchdowns in those situations.
