C-USA Football: Games for Week of 10-13-18
Middle Tennessee 14 FIU 13
The Blue Raiders see QB Brent Stockstill leave with a "lower body injury" but still manage to lead at the break. Per MTSU, he is "probable" for the second half.
Of note, Panther kicker Jose Borregales, who is a red-shirt sophomore, nails a pair of field goals from 44 and 53 yards.
Yes, 53 yards.
FIU 24 MTSU 21
DONE DEAL! The Blue Raiders FALL to the Panthers, keeping FAU's division hopes ALIVE. November 3rd will mark Shula Bowl 17! #GoOwls 👌😎👌Posted On: Oct 13th 2018, 10:46 PM
I feel dirty but happy.
But at least a 50% better chance of that happening now! And IF Stockstill is hurt again….
So I think FAU ***can*** win the division again, but I also think we have to win out to do so. Marshall, LA Tech, FIU, and North Texas still on the schedule means FAU has the toughest stretch left of any team in C-USA. I expect the teams we have left to look like this when we tee it up against them:
LA Tech 5-2
FIU 6-2 (only have 2 tough games left - us and Marshall)
That is 2 easy games, and 4 tough ones.
Conference USATwo teams: Head-to-head
Three or more teams:

- If still tied, the representative will be the team that has not participated in the championship game most recently.
