Biggest win in FAU history

Even though FAU hasn't been around long I would say the biggest win is FAU over UNT in 2004.UNT was Sun Belt champs that year.

The win over Hawaii was huge and helped us get a little bit of National attention and following that with a victory at UNT was also big, but the biggest win has to be our first win agaisnt a D1-A opponent - MTSU. That victory help set the stage for what happen the following year, that magical winning streak of going 5-0 to start the year (including these wins Hawaii, UNT, MTSU ).

Has to be Hawaii. Nobody imagined that FAU would win that ballgame. It put FAU on the map. GO OWLS!!!

... Except that the media was almost silent in this area because of the storm and few people knew about this great win!

Hawaii was the biggest, the first win over MTSU was the best.

You're right Markey, we were all holed up riding out a hurricane while FAU was beating Hawaii, what a night!

I have to go with Hawaii too! Tony made that catch right over in front of us and came over to celebrate. A flag followed but we still won it!

My family didn't ride the bus to the stadium but the feel of walking through all those drunk fans afterwards(parked about 1/2 mile away) was a little scary but chest thumping just the same!

I agree O.G. I've been to alot of football games, college and pro, but that was one of the most exciting moments I've ever had. Then to be escorted out of the stadium made it all the better. Winning over a nationally known team with that ending just barely beats out the last play of the MTSU game (that was very exciting also).

GO OWLS!

Dusky…..

That escort out of the stadium was really something! The fights and students went nuts after the game. Seemed like they mainly fought among themselves mostly! Did you ride the bus? I only had a few who really talked crap. Most were pretty funny but nothing serious. We had to go through some sort of sorority row of students outside in the lot. They tailgate there for that purpose after the games to harass the losers..LOL!
One huge guy who looked like Villi the Warrior, even offered to walk with us to our car but it really wasn't necessary.

I'll never forget that win. Gunslinger Timmy Chang and Chad "Mighty Mouse" Owens went down in Flames!!!

O.G….

No, We hired a car at the hotel. I have a friend that lives in HI that went to the game with us and he wrned us ahead of time that there tends to be alot of fights etc., but like you said they tend to fight amongst themselves. He said it is usually between the Samoans and the Hawaiians. It's be going over foreever. We watched a big Samoan guy come up and instigate a fight with a guy that was cheering for FAU, but he wasn't with the group, he was trying to start trouble and got smacked pretty bad.

That trip was a blast, we stayed an extra week due to the hurricane, not a bad place to get stuck.

GO OWLS!
