Game Notes

The Owls welcome in the Redbirds of Illinois State for an afternoon weekday match-up. Illinois State is coming into Boca Raton following the Snowbird Classic in Port Charlotte, FL where they finished 2-1 against their opponents.

FAU, who is currently on an eight game winning streak overall, also has a 10 game winning streak at home, where they are 14-1.

C-USA Hitter of the Week Ricky Santiago (.382, 2 HR, 22 RBI) will look to lead the Owls to victory after a strong offensive performance over Spring Break, where he hit .429, drove in 10 runs and scores 5 on his own.

FAU's 5-0 finish for the previous week has moved them up to #20 in the D1Baseball.com Poll, and #22 in the NCBWA Poll.

What does Baseball America have against us? Only major poll not to have us ranked and it's not the first time. Maybe they are waiting for conference play?

Not sure, but when they finally place us there, at least it has been scrutinized thoroughly!

They've both been there before.  How it works in all DI sports.  If we are 6-2 in football and Alabama is 6-2 in football they will be ranked ahead of us.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.
