Summary

Is the Frisco Football Classic intentionally supposed to be a tongue twister? Either way, we've got a new bowl!

Both of these teams lean on their run game to keep them competitive, so this game will be won in the trenches.

North Texas put together some impressive games this season, keeping it close with Liberty and ultimately spoiling UTSA's perfect season. Their defense will be the difference in this game, as they'll need to contain Miami's run game to grab the win.

Our Pick

This game will be close, but we like North Texas to cover. FWIW, they covered spreads at the third-best (you read that right, third-best) clip in the nation. Take the points in what should be a competitive, entertaining game.

The Score: Miami (OH) wins but doesn't cover, 30-28
