FEARLESS PREDICTIONS: 2013 Week Twelve - FAU vs Southern Miss
One down, three to go. But not without a price attached.
FAU took care of business last time out against the Green wave, and now find themselves the hunted.
And, although unfamiliar territory, they will have to play the role well. Afterall, there's lots of confidence behind them from onlookers with cash to spend win - 17 points worth.
Is Southern Miss REALLY that bad of a team? Yes.
Brian Wright did his best to "talk" nicely of the once Bowl striding program, but fact of the matter is that the 2013 version of the Golden Eagles are simply not a good football team.
Think Florida Atlantic of 2011, but invert running game for a mediocre passing attack, and there you have it.
Will they win a game this year to avoid the ultimate Bagel? Not likely, but even if they do it simply can't happen against the Owls.
So, we embark into leg number two of a four part race.
Shutting down the Golden Eagles passing game will allow the Owls to cross the finish line first.
FAU 33 Southern Miss 17
