FEARLESS PREDICTIONS WEEK TWELVE SHULA BOWL FAU vs. FIU



One game matters this week and it is the only one that I will be predicting.

FAU (3-7) vs. FIU (2-8)

Shula Bowl XI will be played under the lights on Friday night at FAU. The Owls will get a chance to show off their new digs to a national audience. While that is incentive enough for FAU to get up for this game, the real treat is getting a chance to keep the Shula Bowl Trophy and bragging rights over an FIU team that will be leaving the SunBelt Conference.

FAU leads the series 8-2. However, FIU's two wins were big wins in which the Golden Panthers outscored FAU 93 to 13. While both teams are having less than stellar years, this game should be a good one. The FAU offense is starting to click under QB Graham Wilbert. He has been very efficient throwing 14 touchdowns to only 3 interceptions and while the FAU offense is ranked 108th in the nation, that is a little misleading. In the past four weeks the Owls have averaged just over 30 points per game. FIU has been fairly balanced on offense and they have shown an ability to put up points as well.

Junior FAU running back Jonathan Wallace has been the workhouse late in the season and he is someone to pay attention to this week. The FIU rush defense has been suspect and Wallace might just have his second 100 yard game of the season.

The FAU receiving corps led by sophomore wide receiver William Dukes will look to impress. The FIU secondary should have its hands full.

The key for the FAU defense is going to be to force turnovers and stop the FIU rushing attack. The Panthers are rush heavy and use a solid ground game to set up an efficient, but not explosive passing attack.

Fearless Prediction: FAU 31 FIU 17

GO OWLS!!!

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

I predict that FIU will be overwhelmed by a stadium that has Phase 1, 2, 3 and 4 completed.  Don't worry FIU, you will start Phase 2 of your stadium when demand warrants it.

My prediction is….55-0  FAU wins for the 9th time!

our boys are hungry for this one, team is improving each week, coming off a big win and in our house, we roll big time. I don't think the 55-0, plus I would like to see a bit of a fight early then pull away…

I was proven wrong last week thankfully but this week I am going with…

FAU 28
fiu  10

Can we start an over/under on the number of fiu fans that come north for the beat down?

I will start with 20, I am feeling generous today.

GO OWLS!

I will take the over…I think they are good for a good 40, 41 non family members or employees of FIU, also that does not inlcude band or cheerleaders!
