FAU Loses Historical Game

There is one related word that describes FAU's first loss on September 1, 2001 and the Owls most recent defeat on Saturday, October 3, 2009 in their 100th game as a football program - historical.

FAU lost to “Slippery” Rock 40-7 at Pro Player Stadium in its inaugural season when the Owls finished 4-6. Against the Wyoming Cowboys at Lockhart Stadium, FAU led 28-24 late in the fourth quarter but let the contest “Slip” away as the Owls go into their bye week 0-4.

Wyoming's game winning score came when Alvester Alexander scored on a 15-yard run which capped a 12 play, 91 yard drive that took 3:57 to complete. The extra point failed and the final score was 30-28.

“This football program is going to continue to get better, win more games and while we're doing that the board of trustees and the bond houses and all the things that it takes to build a new stadium will be getting their act together. It will be allowing us the opportunity to play in our own on campus stadium with our own students, who can fall out of bed and watch what's going on”, said Schnellenberger.

Re: FAU Loses Historical Game

I think the two bowl wins can count as historical...and so does the game against Minnesota, and the first win against MTSU.
