Owls Cooled Down in Murfreesboro

Middle Tennessee “Dashes” FAU’s hopes of post season play

Florida Atlantic knew they would have to limit their mistakes in order to grab a victory Saturday. However, just the opposite occurred as the Blue Raiders raced to a 38-14 win and effectively ended any hopes of post season play for the Owls.

Things looked promising early in the game for FAU, as they built a quick 7-0 lead thanks to a Jeff Van Camp 31-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Lester Jean. But after that things went south for the offense.

The unit wouldn’t produce anymore points in the first half, while the Blue Raiders and quarterback Dwight Dasher found some with ease.

Dasher took advantage of a beat up FAU secondary and threw a 44-yard touchdown strike to tie the game in the first quarter.

FAU’s defense responded to the score, when linebacker Yourhighness Morgan grabbed his first career interception, but the turnover didn't account for points as Gornall hooked a 26-yard field goal attempt wide right.

Dasher didn’t miss a beat after his mistake, quickly giving the Blue Raiders their first lead of the game by finding receiver Tyler Mason for a 29-yard touchdown.

“We could not quite get it done tonight on both sides of the ball and special teams,” Linebacker Michael Lockley said.
