Small wonder small crowd was on hand
It was the perfect storm for Saturday's game to have one of the smallest crowds in FAU history.The Owls were coming off a disappointing loss which eliminated them from bowl contention.
The opponent was winless Western Kentucky.
It was Thanksgiving weeekend when many students go home for the holiday weekend.
The game was not only going up against Florida State-Florida, but also Miami-South Florida.
The result was an announced crowd of 14,671, which is tickets distributed. The announced attendance appeared to be off just by 1 - But it's the 1 in front of the 4,671.
FAUOwlAccess.com had our normal team of reporters plus the Sports Editor of the University Press, Franco Panzio, covering the game Saturday. Panzio has done a stellar job covering the football team this season for the University Press and has gtreat insight into the team after covering every home game, but also travelling to most of the road games. We hope you enjoy Panzio's Post-game Notebook on the game. We also had our game story and of course our the most video highlights from the game available anywhere. We also are posting photo galleries from the game.
Today we'll have our Sunday Review with grades for each unit and we'll give out or game balls. We'll also have our preview of Monday's basketball game between FAU and Albany. Should be interesting to see the crowd for that game since the contest was announced during every play stoppage Saturday.
