FAU's bowl hopes TBD on Saturday

Got to the Oxley Center plenty early today for our taping of The Howard Schnellenberger Show and there wasn't much activity.

I think that will be changing pretty quickly with an important game set for Saturday.

The Owls will be playing at Troy, in the game which could determine if FAU has a any shot at playing in a bowl game. If the Owls lose, it's over. If they win, with only games vs. lowly Western Kentucky and struggling FIU remaining, they have a shot.

For the last few games FAU players have said it's been like the playoffs, but the game this week will seem like a Game 7 - win and move on or lose and go home.

Troy is clearly better, but strange things can happen so it should be interesting - at least more interesting than it would have been if FAU had lost to Arkansas State.

The players had a light Sunday with no practice and no Toilet Bowl, but it was still busy here at We had our Sunday Review with news from the Sunday evening conference call Howard Schnellenberger has with reporters as well as our unit grades and game balls. Also, we posted another video highlights package - this one detailing the first drive of the second half and the tone it set when Alfred Morris scored from the 7-yard line. This video is free for all fans so they can see the quality of videos puts together for our subscribers on a regular basis.

Also check out this link for all the links to our game coverage. I think you'll find it's the most comprehensive coverage you can get anywhere.

Turning to basketball, we had our preview of Monday's basketball game between FAU and Southeast Lousisiana.

Not bad for a lazy Sunday.

On Monday, we'll have our 1st and 10 look at the Trojans and also have a recap of the basketball game.
