      FAU needs a victory over Old Dominion to realistically keep hopes of a C-USA repeat alive. Let’s talk about the game here.

      KEYS TO THE GAME: ODU (1-4, 0-2) vs. FAU (2-3, 0-1)


      ODU (1-4, 0-2)
      vs. FAU (2-3, 0-1)

      • When: Saturday, 5 p.m.
      • Where: Howard Schnellenberger Field, Boca Raton.
      • Listen: ESPN West Palm
      • Watch: Stadium (WTCN locally)
      • Opposition Research: ODU

      Key for FAU: Control the line of scrimmage. In Oshane Ximines and Daniel Appouh Old Dominion brings what left tackle Reggie Bain called the best defensive ends the Owls have faced this year. Neutralize the Monarchs’ defensive ends and ODU doesn’t have much more to offer. If the Owls keep quarterback Chris Robison’s jersey relatively clean, allowing FAU to mount at least the credible threat of big plays in the passing game, Devin Singletary and Kerrith Whyte should find plenty of room in the running game.

      Key for ODU: Stop FAU’s running game. The Monarchs are allowing nearly 220 rushing yards per game. FAU has rushed for more than 300 yards twice already this season. Singletary has yet to enjoy a game this season where he rolls to big yardage. If this is the game where Singletary, or Whyte for that matter, frequently get to the second level of ODU’s defense, the Monarchs are in trouble.
