FAU to play Texas Longhorns in 2008

I just read Nelson's Blog from the Post. here is the article:

Texas sized opponent on the horizon?

By Marcus Nelson | Monday, August 13, 2007, 11:30 PM

The word around the Oxley Center is that FAU is close to finalizing a game at Texas next season. While athletic department officials say the deal is not finalized, it sounds like there are only a few small details to be worked out before a Owls-Longhorns tilt will be official.

The discussions are still ongoing, but the Owls believe they will be in Austin, Texas for the first game of the 2008 season. FAU also plays at Minnesota and at Michigan State next season.

Texas is familiar with Sun Belt Conference teams. The Longhorns will play host to Arkansas State to kick-of this season and have played a Sun Belt Conference team every year in its opening game since the Sun Belt?s first year in 2001.

These are the same Longhorns expected to open UCF's season in their new stadium… is that correct?

Wow! That is great…This type of scheduling should help with our recruiting big time. All we need now is to beat Minnesota this season and we are on a major meteoric rise…



p.s. It will also help get us a lot better apparel to choose from.

09-15 Sat. Minnesota @ Florida Atlantic 1:00 p.m. ESPN360
Don?t laugh! Minnesota will be, well, they?re just going to flat out stink. FAU is the home team and FAU has the potential to pull this off. Keep in mind, the Golden Gophers were one point and a missed FG away from losing to North Dakota State???at home.

From http://saturdaysoundoffs.blogspot.com/2007/08/games-to-watch-part-3.html

This is the game to win to start the OCC wins, back it up with a strong showing at KY and win the USF game.

GO OWLS!

I agree Dusky, they've had a ton of off the field troubles this summer, lost some good players, they've got a new coach, AND my prediction for the weather that afternoon will be 90 with 85% humidity…the upset is there for the taking!

Weve got a shot against Minnesota. Basically all they have is Amir Pinnix. Hes a great back and hopefully we can stop him because they really dont pass the ball very well. It will be all up to the toughness of FAU's front 7 to win this game by stopping Pinnix who will get 30 to 35 carries.
Dont think that Minnesotas bad because they had a close call against North Dakota State though. ND State went 10-1 last year with only the 1 point loss at Minnesota and a win over D1 BAll State and they would have likely won the 1-AA title if not serving a NCAA postseason ban. They have a suffocating defense agisnt the run which is what we will need to pull off the upset against Minnesota.

So much for any plans to scale back the schedule. I guess that will have to wait until 2009. Texas is a monster. FAU will have their hands full with that game.

GO OWLS!!!

You can run kitties, but you can't hide!!!
