I’ve been following UNT’s opponnets in the 2013 season a little this year.
Ball State pulled off a stunner tonight, beating 25th-ranked Toledo 34-27
Ball State is 7-3 and likely headed to a bowl game. Its quarterback, leading receiver in the game and its leading rusher will all be back next year.
I’m not saying UNT can’t or won’t beat Ball State, but it just seems like the way things go for the Mean Green in the post bowl era.
UNT also has Ohio, which is 8-1 and is led by junior quarterback Tyler Tettleton, and Georgia, which is, well, Georgia, next year. Not to mention a full Conference USA slate.
UNT is supposed to open with Idaho, which is 1-8.
Even when you take that into account, out of the 13 teams in the MAC, six have winning records. UNT has two of them scheduled for next season and both of them have their quarterbacks returning.
UNT scheduled the MAC schools well in advance. It’s just odd to see both having great years that will help vault them into the season they face UNT.
