FAU junior RB Devin Singletary ran 22 times for 148 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 34-15 win against Western Kentucky. Singletary has registered 20 rushing touchdowns this season, and he has 148 or more yards in each of his past three outings. He has also hit the century mark in six of the past seven contests. He has 20 career games with at least two rushing touchdowns. He'll look to add to that number as the Owls travel to North Texas next Saturday.
North Texas Mean Green
North Texas junior QB Mason Fine completed 26-of-44 passes for 240 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 34-31 loss at Old Dominion. The biggest news from this game was not just the second loss in three weeks, and third loss overall in Conference USA, but the interception. Fine has been Tua Tagovailoa-like (OK, not really), entering the day with 21 passing scores and just one interception through his first nine outings. He still has a three-game streak with at least two TDs, and at least one TD strike in 21 straight games since a loss at Iowa on Sept. 16, 2017. Next up is a home game against FAU.
The over is 4-1 in the Owls’ last five road games when facing a team with a winning home record.
The under is 4-1 in the Mean Green’s last five games after allowing less than 100 yards rushing in their previous contest.
In previous meetings between these two teams, the under has often been the most profitable play on the board. In the last six meetings overall, the under is 5-1. In the last five meetings between these two teams in Texas, the under is 4-1. The under is also 6-2 in the Owls’ last eight conference games, is 12-3-1 in the Mean Green’s last 16 games overall, and 4-0-1 in North Texas’ last five home games as well.
College Football Prediction: FAU/North Texas under 63.5
