Watch New Orleans Bowl 2017: Troy vs North Texas Live Stream Online Start Time, Live Update, Schedule, Odds, Preview, Prediction. College football fans can breathe easy when the Troy Trojans and the North Texas Mean Green square off in the New Orleans Bowl on Saturday at 1 p.m. ET.
No, Troy (10-2) and North Texas (9-4) are not meeting in a College Football Playoff game or even a New Year’s Six bowl. However, the game at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome that will be televised by ESPN represents the first bowl game of the 2017-18 postseason.
While neither team is considered high profile, this has the chance to be an exciting, high-scoring matchup between two sides with excellent passing games.
North Texas has averaged 467 yards of offense this season, and the Mean Green has been explosive throughout the year. They could not handle Florida Atlantic, losing twice to their rival, including the Conference USA championship game. North Texas’ other losses were to Iowa and SMU early in the season.
