Troy vs North Texas

Welcome to the 2017 college football bowl season. Your weekly dedication to America’s greatest sport (don’t @ me) has paid off in the form of 39 football games over the course of about two weeks. So eat, drink, avoid your in-laws and be merry while watching college football. And if you think there are too many bowl games,

Now, on to more important items. The bowl season kicks off with an old Sun Belt game that’s been given a new twist due to realignment. North Texas actually had a secondary home at the New Orleans Bowl in the early 2000s with four straight appearances from 2001-04. Troy is coming off a share of a Sun Belt title and is seeking its highest single-season win total (11) ever. Similarly, North Texas is looking for its first 10-win season in history.

Two of the better Group of Five teams should make this one of the better games early in the bowl season. Co-Sun Belt champion Troy will bring the defense, and Conference USA runner-up North Texas the offense.

Troy took home a piece of the Sun Belt title with a road win against Arkansas State. It’s mostly known, though, for a 24-21 victory against LSU that became a punchline for Southeastern Conference haters.

The Trojans offense was solid by trying to play mistake-free. The veteran backfield doesn’t turn the ball over and leaves everything to a defense that finished 11th in the nation in points allowed.

Now Troy and its devastating pass rush must face a North Texas offense that bombs away.

QB Brandon Silvers, Troy: How do you win a piece of the Sun Belt title, beat LSU in Death Valley and come up with a 10-win season on the way to a bowl? You hope your veteran quarterback can keep things moving and limit the mistakes, then let the defense do the rest. Silvers spread out six interceptions throughout the year and threw for close to 3,000 yards and 13 scores.

RB Jordan Chunn, Troy: He has 47 touchdown runs over his five years — he missed most of 2015 while hurt — though his rushing production slowed this season. He still was effective enough to average more than 5 yards per carry, run for 10 scores and be a factor as a receiver. Big, tough and shifty, he’s a matchup problem, no matter how he gets the ball.

QB Mason Fine, North Texas: With star RB Jeffery Wilson getting hurt late in the season, the offense fell more on Fine’s shoulders. Hardly a big bomber, the 5-11, 180-pounder is hardly afraid to push it deep and go for the big plays. He throws too many picks — the team is 0-3 when he throws two interceptions — but he’s good for 300 yards if needed.

LB E.J. Ejiya, North Texas: The team’s leading tackler, with 100 stops, and the best pass rusher, he’s the tone-setter who does what’s needed. Better on the move than in the box, he’ll chase down just about everything.
