Knew It Was Coming: FIU shifts focus to showdown with FAU in Shula Bowl...

While most of us probably held on to slim Hopes that we could beat Troy yesterday and keep Bowl Hopes alive, it is truly time to face reality…and that reality is that we have two games left.  WKU and FIU.

We can't look past WKU - who is winless and will bring everything they have to Lockhart next weekend. But the real gem that awaits is defeating the Panthers…especially since it is on their turf. This is, unfortunately, what our season comes down to.

We can still put asunder our chief rival FIU (3-8) who is now focusing on The 2009 Shula Bowl since we are the last in line on their schedule.  Get er dun:

With their toughest game of the season behind them, the FIU Golden Panthers have Saturday off before finishing up against FAU on Dec. 5 in the annual Don Shula Bowl at FIU Stadium.

The Panthers hope to work out some kinks to help bring the Don Shula Trophy back to FIU.

Although the Panthers are not at the same level as the top-ranked Florida Gators, who won 62-3 on Saturday in Gainesville, FIU had some opportunities but did not capitalize.

"Some things we have to clean up and shore up to play against FAU,'' FIU coach Mario Cristobal said. "Because we did leave some opportunities early on in the field.''
