How to watch Western Kentucky vs. North Texas football game
The North Texas Mean Green are on the road again on Saturday and play against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers at 3:30 p.m. ET Oct. 29 at Houchens Industries-L.T. Smith Stadium. WKU should still be feeling good after a victory, while the Mean Green will be looking to regain their footing.
North Texas was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap last week as they fell 31-27 to the UTSA Roadrunners. RB Oscar Adaway III had a pretty forgettable game, rushing for 20 yards on ten carries.
Meanwhile, the UAB Blazers typically have all the answers at home, but last Friday WKU proved too difficult a challenge. WKU had just enough and edged out UAB 20-17. The Hilltoppers’ success was spearheaded by the efforts of RB L.T. Sanders, who picked up 120 yards on the ground on 16 carries, and QB Austin Reed, who accumulated 128 passing yards in addition to punching in two rushing touchdowns.
WKU’s defense was a presence as well, as it collected one interception and three fumbles. DB Kahlef Hailassie picked up that interception and then proceeded to rub salt in the wound by taking it back the other way for a touchdown.
The Mean Green have to know they’ll be fighting an uphill battle given the ten-point spread they are up against. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a four-game streak of ATS wins.
North Texas is now 4-4 while the Hilltoppers sit at 5-3. Two offensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: North Texas ranks ninth in the nation when it comes to passing touchdowns, with 20 on the season. But WKU is even better: they come into the contest boasting the seventh most passing touchdowns in the nation at 22. We’ll see if that edge gives WKU a route to victory.
