Owls 20 point dogs at Nebraska...

Early lines are out…and as expected, FAU is a dog heading into Memorial Stadium:

197 Florida Atlantic
198 Nebraska -20 60

So if we do the math here, Vegas is thinking that the score should end up FAU 20 - NU 40…

Unfortunately that sounds about right based on how FAU has faired in the past against BCS teams. Lets hope this is the year that all changes.

GO OWLS!!!

You can run kitties, but you can't hide!!!

I've seen +21 for FAU so far…

No money lines yet for you Rick, though they may not ever happen, but we'll keep ya posted!

They usually dont offer a money line for such lopsided favorites….would have to be like -450 Nebraska and +550 for FAU.

I like that 21 point spread, give me FAU and 3 TD's to start…I'll take that.  I believe our offense will score at least 24 points.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

Even with all the press about the D stepping up, and being better than forecasted, we don't move…and now are at 21.5 - 22…

Not sure i am seeing 3 TD's anymore…

Dropping to +17 would seem about right…plus they took some hits as well…lost the back-up QB, and RB…

So, that means both the starting RB and QB will need to play the whole game practically?  I mean, there is a noticeable drop between their number 1 QB and their number 3 QB…bringing the latter in would mean a run showing for the most part? Not sure about the back-up RB…

But who knows, they may be able to do that…athough not seeing it based off of the last scrimmage we had…even with the corn fed line they have…

Big but SLOW. Could never match-up well with UM's speed even while dominating the Big 12.

From ESPN's game preview. We're not to shabby when the offense shows up….



Record When Scoring… (Since 2001)

              20 OR MORE    30 OR MORE    40 OR MORE    50 OR MORE

And he writes this….

"Florida Atlantic will run the spread offense. Nebraska will defend with the nickel and dime sets much of the game."

EPIC FAIL.

LOL lets hope that Nebraska is prepareing for a spread attack.


I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.
