Move Shula Bowl to Thanksgiving weekend

So while Florida was playing Florida State and South Florida playing host to Miami this weekend, FAU countered with a game vs. Western Kentucky.

The result was predictable - the smallest crowd to see a FAU football game in some time.

In my opinion FAU would have been better served by playing the Shula Bowl on Thanksgiving weekend - and should do it every year since USF and Miami have decide to play their game that weekend for the next several years.

Yes, there is a chance of getting lost with so many big games, but it could bring some excitement that a "rivalry" that could use a little boost.

If going head-to-head with other big games makes some skittish, the Owls and Golden Panthers could consider playing on Friday or even Thursday.

FAU just needs to do something to make sure a crowd like it had Saturday doesn't happen again.

At FAUOwlAccess.com we love it when the fall and winter sports overlap. So on Sunday not only did we have our Sunday Review for football when we grade each unit and hand out our Game Balls, but we also had a preview of Monday's basketball game between Albany and FAU.

And we have double the fun today as well as we post our 1st and 10 for FIU with the 10 things you need to know about the Golden Panthers as well as live coverage from the Burrow when the Owls play host to the Great Danes.

    I don't have all the facts and the dust is still settling,but it seems we have some walk ons that can and will provide some needed depth at some...

    How are the proposed walk ons looking at this time?

    Rusty Smith released by Calgary on Sunday. Hopes he can catch on with another CFL team or get an invite to an NFL team training camp. We hope so too!

    Former Owl Rusty Smith of the CFL Calgary Stampeders completed a 26 yard pass to set up the winning field goal in a preseason game against Winnipeg...

    Lestar Jean was waived by the Minnesota Vikings...I believe he is injured. Could have played a role in it.
