North Texas makes a bowl game for the third straight season and this year they will try to win one. Seth Littrell has done everything but that as he has established a winning tradition at North Texas.
The players are excited the fans are excited and this is an easy drive for their fan base and the game will be on national T.V. ESPN an added bonus for the players. I see this game meaning so much more for North Texas.
This is not the bowl that Utah State wanted to be in they finished off their 10-2 season with a devastating loss to Boise State that ended their dream of becoming Mountain West Champions and I think you will see their play suffer on Saturday.
North Texas finally got a game breaking quarterback in the way of junior quarterback Mason Fine, who gained national prominence with yet another fine bookmark season under center. Look for him to add to his resume this weekend as I think he will have no problem with the Utah State secondary.
