FEARLESS PREDICTIONS: 2013 Week Four - FAU vs MTSU
The three contests between the Owls and Blue Raiders in which FAU was the victor has resulted in a +7 margin for the Owls. Ironically, they have fared better on the road (2-3) than they have at home (1-4).
Conversely, the contests won by MTSU have been decided by an average margin of +16.4 points for the Blue Raiders.
Initially, Saturday's tilt appears to resemble the early and mid-series games which are the closest in outcomes. Both offensives have a couple issues, while the defense shows as a strength.
Given the offensive line injuries for MTSU, the passing game will likely see more action in comparison to the first two games for the Blue Raiders. Advantage Florida Atlantic.
And if Johnson shows a slight increase in passing proficiency, thus opening up the run game a bit more, this game could go the home team's way.
But defensive touchdowns will not take place for the Owls as they did last weekend in Tampa, and that leaves the aforementioned heavily relied upon against a solid Middle Tennessee defensive unit.

We haven't done a post of the day "officially" in quite some time (will be back on track soon), but this get's the nod for honorable mention regardless!

Silver_Bullet32 said28-20..FAU…I think the heat wears down both defenses.. but our D holds strong late…Posted On: Sep 19th 2013, 11:49 PM
Love the climate comment! Huge believer that heat wins games, but I think you are pushing it with 28 points. Thats like 9+ field goals for Mitch.
Does the win really count if we don't have any 4 star recruits playing?
