FAU will try and finish up strong

This may come as a shock, especially those who began following FAU football in the last two seasons, but there was a time when the Owls didn't go to a bowl game every season.

Following the Owls' loss to Troy that ensures FAU will be home for the holidays, there was plenty of disappointment on the faces of players and coaches.

But how will they bounce back for the final two games?

We really won't know until the games are played, but FAU does have a history of finishing strong.

In 2006, FAU lost its seventh game of the season late in the season to Troy to end the slim hopes of making it to a bowl game, but defeated North Texas and FIU to close out the season.

Also last season, after losing to Arkansas State, it was assumed Sun Belt bowl "agreements" would send the Red Wolves and possibly Louisiana-Lafayette would be in bowl games before FAU. We know now the SBC agreements were worthless, but at the time FAU was on the outside looking and in and responded to rally to FAU.

The guess here is that many fans have thrown in the towel and Lockhart Stadium will be a virtual ghost town on Saturday, but the team will still have plenty of fight in them for the final two games.
