Plenty on the line for FAU

When FAU lost last season's game to Arkansas State, it seemed that the season was over, a bowl bid was out of the question and the program had reached a new low.

As we know, the Owls did indeed make it to a bowl game and after beating Central Michigan in the Motor City Bowl, the 2008 season turned out to be a succesful one.

Fast forward to this season and the stakes are even higher when the Owls face the Red Wolves.

If FAU were to lose this game, there will be no miracle rally down the stretch this season. In fact the next game the Owls don't win will officially signal the end of their bowl hopes.

Ditto for Arkansas State, which also has six losses.

That's not exactly what we thought would be the storyline in August, but it will have to do.

The up-side? Should be a good game. There's nothing like seeing two teams with nothing to lose fighting for their lives.

See you at Lockhart.

Nice subtle reference, Chuck!! Good one ;-)

Yes, this is the week. It's Owl Time. The Rice Owls come to Boca to face the FAU Owls for a battle that will force sportswriters to write games...

One certainly impacts the other. Six interceptions? Those DBs certainly benefitted from a strong pass rush, too.

Can anyone out there help Cheelan?

Isn't it funny how our LB's seemed to have improved at the same time our DL is at it's best. I wonder if there is a connection?
