Owls play soft as pillows

It's a good bet FAU won't be staying at the Marriott in Prattville, Ala. on its next swing through Alabama.

The team stayed at that hotel twice - and both times set records for the most yards given up in a game.

The first time they stayed there, the Owls gave up 622 yards to UAB earlier this month. Two weeks later, they allowed 651 yards to Troy.

The hotel has plush, soft pillows, but that doesn't mean games against the Blazers and Trojans should have been treated by the defense like pillow fights.

It's time for a new team hotel - maybe one near a railroad track that keeps players up all night, so they'll have a mean streak when the game starts.

FAUOwlAccess.com covered the game from every angle including our game story, video highlights and some post-game notes. We'll add some of the audio from the post-game press conferences today and post some more photos so check back often.

Later today, we'll also have our regular Sunday Review with grades for each unit, our Game Ball winners and a report from the Toilet Bowl, which has some extra significance today as the Owls essentially begin preparing for 2010.

Also we'll have a preview of Monday's basketball game between Manhattan and FAU, which had a nice victory Saturday that many may have missed.
