The Owls are 2-0 in Conference USA play, placing them atop the East Division. They’ve won consecutive games and three of their last four.
FAU is playing good football, which makes this week both a good and bad time for a bye.
This week on OwlTalk, the first and still finest FAU football podcast, host Brian Rowitz of ESPN West Palm and our Chuck King discuss the timing of the bye week and how it will affect the Owls moving forward, along with the Owls’ recent surge.
We also examine the struggles in the passing game and even delve into a little recruiting talk, discussing the Owls’ bye week recruiting plan.
With the Owls off this week, we elected to hold OwlTalk – normally released on Thursdays – until Saturday in hopes of providing a little FAU football feel to what will otherwise be an Owl-less football Saturday.
It’s not the same as watching FAU play, but hopefully talking a little FAU football will help bridge the gap between now and Saturdays’ homecoming game against North Texas – a game that stands to be a battle of two first place C-USA teams.
