The Boise State Broncos and North Texas Mean Green meet up in the Frisco Bowl at Toyota Stadium on Saturday in Frisco, Texas. The game kicks off at 9:15 p.m. ET, and will air on ESPN.

The Broncos made it to the Mountain West conference championship game with a perfect conference record, but fell to Fresno State in the big game. Their other losses this season were against Oregon State, UTEP, and BYU.

They’ll get the chance to face off against the North Texas Mean Green (7-6, 6-2 C-USA), the Conference-USA runner-up. The Mean Green won five of their last seven regular season games to make it to their conference championship and qualify for a bowl.

The Pick

Boise State -10.5

North Texas had a great stretch at the end of the season, but they simply will not be able to match up against Boise State’s all-around dominance. Though the two are both conference runners-up, they are not on the same level of play, and this should be a breeze to cap off a solid season for the Broncos.
