When the Florida Atlantic Owls took the field as the first FAU football team in 2001, they were led onto the field by legendary coach Howard Schnellenberger. The Owls’ first season wasn’t too much of a success – FAU’s first football team finished its inaugural season at 4-5 – but it didn’t take long for Howard Schnellenberger to march the FAU Owls down a winning road.

FAU football posted its first winning record in 2003. That was the year the Florida Atlantic Owls reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division I-AA playoffs. Howard Schnellenberger wasn’t satisfied with being a successful I-AA program, though. The year after that big run, FAU football began the transition process to the Bowl Championship Series.

Florida Atlantic football entered the Sun Belt Conference, winning the conference title in 2007, their second year of full-fledged Division I-A competition. By virtue of winning the Sun Belt Conference title, the Florida Atlantic Owls also nabbed their first bid. The Owls made the most of it as Howard Schnellenberger guided the FAU football team to a 44-27 victory over Memphis in the New Orleans Bowl.

FAU earned its second bowl bid the following season and kept its bowl record unblemished by defeating Central Michigan 24-21 in the Motor City Bowl.

Florida Atlantic football will attempt to build on its already impressive record during this season. As always, check with Owl Access to see how the Florida Atlantic Owls do.
