NEW ORLEANS - The fog that engulfed the Big Easy on Friday had lifted by Saturday morning and the view from FAU coach Howard Schnellnberger’s suite on the top floor of the Sheraton had never looked so good.

With the Mississippi River winding outside in the background, Schnellenberger smiled often as he talked about the Owls victory 44-27 victory in the New Orleans Bowl just a few hours before.

This wasn’t a victory by a team loaded with seniors which had mortgaged its future for one shot at greatness. The conventional wisdom was the Owls were year away from winning a Sun Belt Championship and making to to the New Orleans Bowl.

Well, after making it the New Orleans Bowl, the Owls want to go again next year as well.

And they’ll have a great chance next year.

A FAU football helmet was used as a prop in the post-game news conference and someone inquired as to how to ship it back to Boca Raton.

A bowl officials said it should just stay in The Big Easy for next year’s game.


The Owls wouldn’t mind that one bit,

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

Nice! Hopefully all the other SBC teams will remain about the same or worse… who else has a senior QB other than Troy?
