North Texas Mean Green vs UTEP Miners 8/27/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The North Texas Mean Green will go against the UTEP Miners in NCAAF action in Sun Bowl, TX, on Saturday, August 27, 2022, at 9:00 PM ET. North Texas enters the 2022 season after a highly successful 2021 season.


After starting the season with a 1-6 record, the squad came back to win five consecutive matches and secure a ticket to a bowl game.


Their 45-23 surprise win over previously unbeaten UTSA, which tied their record at 6-6, was the pinnacle of their season. With the victory, the Mean Green earned bowl eligibility for the sixth time in Seth Littrell’s six seasons as head coach.


It was their 13th overall bowl participation. They would complete the season at 6-7 after losing to Miami of Ohio 23–14. The Mean Green are now 3-10 all-time in bowl games.


When North Texas switched to a more ground-based offensive in 2021, their fortunes shifted. They gained 283 running yards per game during the team’s last five-game unbeaten run of the season.


KD Davis, a senior linebacker and a preseason candidate for Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year, will be North Texas’ defensive captain.


The senior, who is in his fifth year, led the team in tackles for the past three seasons and was named All-Conference in 2021.


  • The North Texas Mean Green is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 matches. 
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of North Texas’ last 6 matches. 
  • North Texas is 5-1 SU in their last 6 matches.

North Texas Mean Green vs UTEP Miners Predictions 8/27/2022


The UTEP Miners are eager to go bowling again this year, just like their season-opening rival North Texas. The Miners’ bowl trip was their first in seven years, in contrast to North Texas.


They also have the benefit of having several returning players, especially on offense. Despite losing their best receiver, Jacob Cowing, who moved to Arizona, they got their quarterback, Gavin Hardison, back.


Last season, Hardison passed for 3,223 yards and 18 touchdowns. This year, Hardison’s major goal is to increase the Miners’ sustainable drives.


Last year, UTEP only ranked 89th nationally in scoring but second in plays of 40 yards or more.


This year, UTEP will face the task of containing North Texas’ running game. The Mean Green was able to convert on three of their four fourth-down tries last year, leading to 183 yards and one score on the ground for the Mean Green.


The Miners’ defense is getting stronger all the time, and by the time 2021 was through, they were rated 53rd in the nation, a long cry from their defensive ranking of 119th in scoring in 2019.


  • The University of Texas El Paso is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 5 of Texas El Paso’s last 6 matches. 
  • Texas El Paso is 1-5 SU in their last 6 matches.

North Texas Mean Green vs UTEP Miners. The NCAAF pick for this game is the UTEP Miners. The Miners, who ended 5-1 at home last year, have a very advantageous opening line.


The Miners relied on a big-play offense and a developing defense in 2021, but they suffered in the final stretch when it was difficult to get big plays. Gavin Hardison, the offensive coordinator, and the quarterback will all do a better job this year of relying on longer drives and less on the home run play.


The Miners should also be much more prepared to handle Mean Green’s ground game from a film perspective given the match from the previous year and the fact that the squad knew North Texas will be their first opponent for some time, allowing them to plan appropriately.


UTEP has the more potent offense, superior defense, and significant home-field advantage. The UTEP Miners will win by a predicted score of 29-27.
