Van Camp to start vs. UAB
BOCA RATON - With results expected soon from tests on quarterback Rusty Smith's left shoulder, Jeff Van Camp will start this week vs. UAB, Owls coach Howard Schnellenberger said.

Smith is expected to have his left shoulder X-Rayed Monday to determine how severe the injury is and how much time the senior will miss.

Schnellenberger said he doesn't know about Smith's status after this week.

Smith returned to the Oxley Center at around 2:15 p.m. presumably after having his X-Rays.

Van Camp, a junior, was 5-of-9 for 73 yards Saturday. vs. Middle Tennessee after he replaced Smith on the game's final drive.

Of course, we'll have more on this story as it develops.

    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?
