Game Preview: FAU vs ULM



Owls in need of a productive day offensively

Florida Atlantic football welcomes back Sun Belt conference play Saturday night with a trip to the University of Louisiana-Monroe, in a series in which the road team has won every meeting. After a physical 31-3 loss to South Florida last Saturday, the Owls come into this week’s matchup against a team that is only 1-3 (0-1) on the season, with their only victory being a one-point win over FCS Southeastern Louisiana.

FAU’s offense has struggled throughout the first four games of the season, averaging only 303.3 total yards a game and 17.3 points. Most of the growing pains however come from a young and often injured offensive line that gave up seven sacks to USF.

“We’ve produced some yardage but not near enough points,” Head Coach Howard Schnellenberger said of the offense. Saturday night, that offense will feature two new starters on the line, in center Mike Nweze and right tackle Joe Bailey, who are taking over for the injured Jimmie Colley and Max Karrick.
