What you need to know about North Texas

After opening its season with a win over Houston Baptist, North Texas had a tough outing in a 65-35 loss to SMU last week. Quarterback Austin Aune put forth a good effort for the losing side as he passed for two touchdowns and 276 yards on 25 attempts, in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown. 

Aune’s 55-yard touchdown toss to receiver Deonte Simpson in the fourth quarter made for one of the most memorable moments of the game. The Mean Green will have to play better on defense after giving up an average of 48 points per game in their first two outings. 

What you need to know about Southern Miss

Southern Miss, meanwhile, is coming off a 66-24 loss to Tulane. The Golden Eagles were down 52-24 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. A silver lining for Southern Miss was the play of wide receiver Jason Brownlee, who caught three passes for one TD and 110 yards. 

Southern Miss coach Jay Hopson resigned after the first game of the season, but the Golden Eagles haven’t fared much better since that point under interim head coach Scott Walden. USM is 0-3 on the season and has yet to cover any spreads.
