How North Texas Reached the Frisco Football Classic

The biggest surprise for bettors in 2021? Let’s throw in a bid for North Texas, which covered spreads at the third-best rate in the entire country, behind only Michigan and Oklahoma State.

The turning point for the Mean Green was in Week 8, when they hung with Liberty as 21-point ‘dogs.

They ripped off five wins both straight-up and against the spread down the stretch thereafter, including spoiling UTSA’s perfect season in the finale.

North Texas’ offense starts on the ground.

Deandre Torrey’s the work-horse, with more than 1,200 yards for a backfield that has four players with at least four rushing scores.

This is the fifth bowl appearance for head coach Seth Littrell, who’s looking for his first postseason victory.

How Miami (OH) Reached the Frisco Football Classic

Miami finished second in the MAC East with a 5-3 conference record. But a 48-47 loss to Kent State in the final game of the regular season kept the Redhawks out of the conference championship game.

However, Miami is advancing to a bowl game and cashed over 4.5 win total tickets for bettors, rebounding from a 1-3 non-conference record to start the year.

The Redhawks will lean on quarterback Brett Gabbert, who has thrown at least four touchdowns in three of his last five games.
