FEARLESS PREDICTIONS FAU vs. USF

Normally I wait until Thursday morning to get this thread started, but people are chomping at the bit this week.

FAU vs. USF

Let's get this thing going. USF is a very good team, not a #6 team in my opinion. The defense is dominant while the offense is unremarkable. Grothe isn't much of a pass threat, but he can make plays on the run. I think his mobility and the solid USF run game will test the FAU defense. However, even if the FAU defense bends it won't be broken by the pass game like it was last week against Kentucky. Every TD pass that Kentucky's Woodson threw was to an open receiver and 4 out of 5 were lazy fade patterns. USF won't have the same success.

On offense FAU is going to have to rely on Rusty to make quick decisions and sharp passes. He is capable if given time by the O-line. Last week at Kentucky the O-line was solid so they might be okay against a top notch USF defense. The run game will need to get going just enough to keep USF honest. But realistically we all know that FAU is going to rely heavily on the pass. I think FAU matches up well despite the apparent disparity in speed and talent. Execution is going to be the key for FAU to overcome USF's dominance on defense.

The emotions of this game will play a big role. In the end I think that will account for something. This is FAU's biggest game and it is a home game. FAU has absolutely nothing to lose. USF on the other hand has a lot to lose as their dream season will be put in jeopardy with a loss to FAU. In the end this is going to be a close one.

I'll take it. Didn't FAU lose 3-0 a few years back in overtime??? I guess 3-2 is possible.

I would hope for at least 3 USF touchdowns.  That's not a crazy stretch.  Maybe throw a field goal in there.  I really think, despite FAU's offense stats, the USF defense is going to be a little overwhealming.  I'm not saying FAU isn't  good…..so don't get upset…….I just like our chances on defense.  I'm throwing a defensive touchdown in there.  FAU will get into the endzone a couple of times and boot a field goal.

I'm feeling 35-17 at the moment.  Misses the first spread, makes the second for a DOUBLE PAY DAY…of course I've got no action on the game, but I think it was the worst line of the week.

Re: FEARLESS PREDICTIONS FAU vs. USF

Looks like most people are picking this to be a fairly close game barring any late TDs to throw the score out of whack in one direction or the other. The one thing that could make this game have a wider margin than most are predicting is if FAU puts in back-ups in the 4th quarter despite only being down by a few TDs. It seems like coach likes guys to get experience during these non-conf. games as opposed to trying to tighten the score even if a "W" is out of the question. Case in point would be Kentucky last week. FAU was out of it, but could have maybe closed the gap a little if the back-ups weren't put in. Instead, Kentucky scored a late TD and made the margin of victory wider than it should have been.

USF Wins.

Not sure if we can do this. As usual I hope its the exact opposite.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.
