Our Chances for Thursday

We held our own even with all the youngsters. Looks like OK St. had some 1-AA trouble:

Scoreboard: Week 1 - Final
Lewis Field - Stillwater , OK 1 2 3 4 T
Montana State (0-1) 3 7 0 0 10
Oklahoma State (1-0) 8 0 7 0 15
Only 5pts? Hmmm.

Hopefully its humid and I like our chances.

Our Chances for Thursday

After tonight's game and what OK State did, I have to take us in a squeaker. Hopefully, any injuries we have heal up by Thursday and the weather plays in our favor.

I think we'll have a better season than most expect!

Our Chances for Thursday

Having seen the Owls hold their own very nicely against Kansas winning 13-12 with the 3rd quarter just 1 minute from ending should tell the Div I-A football stats prediction of 24-point underdogs not to judge a book by its cover. A final score of 30-19 for the majority of FAU players being newbies shows FAU has the stuff if they keep working at it. I chose FAU winning big as Oklahoma State barely squeaked by (5 point win) against a Div I-AA opponent. Does anyone happen to know any websites that list all the Div I-A teams ranks? Like where did Kansas rank? I heard they were in the top 50. And where is Oklahoma State ranked, Minnesota, and Lousiana-Monroe? Any tips for finding the info would be great!

GO FAU!!!

Here are the rankings prior to this week's games. I think they are updated on Mondays or Tuesdays. Kansas was in the top 50.

Our Chances for Thursday

Remember that Montana and Montana State almost always have good D1-AA teams. That area have some hidden D1-A talent up there. D1-A teams don't like scheduling Ga Southern and Delaware for that very reason. Two seasons ago FAU shocked the world vs Midd Tenn with hidden D1-A talent. OK State may have learned their lesson from not preparing for an underdog.

I hope we can build on this one and pull off an upset at home.

Go Owls!!!

An upset would have done wondwers for attendance on Thursday night - having a good showing Saturday hopefully will bring out some fair weathered fans.

Go Owls!!
