SHULA BOWL PREDICTIONS

This should be fun for the youngsters. But the pressure of being the 1st team to lose the Shula trophy will bring enough early mistakes. They'll settle down.

I'm a little nervous of the TE from FIU. The slant/skinny post pass has given us trouble this year. Padrick is one of the best at that pass if he utilizes it.
Clayton have to have a good game and move around in the pocket. If FIU bring #17 on blitzes we have to adjust or McKinson may see some early playing time.

I'll still say we pull it off with a decent run game to set up some play action passes.

Our starting TE, Sam Smith was injured in the first quarter of the WKU game. I don't know yet his status for the Shula Bowl…… :-/

I am really sorry to hear that. I don't like to see anyone injured.

How is Victor? Wasn't he out or injured awhile back? I will try to get over to see him after the game. I watched him all through high school.

I like FAU in this game. I think Clayton will have the offense rolling and the ground game will shine. I see some points on the board this week.

Clayton looks good in this one. 21-30, 215, 2 TDs.

GO OWLS!!!

Clayton should be effective enough combined with a solid running game, would be great to get another solid preformance like Edgecomd & Pierre had against UNT, to make this game winnable.

For some reason FIU offense scares me a bit - they have the potential to put a lot of points on the board, quickly and sometimes our D has been a little suspect at times. This has the potential to be a blow out similar to the MTSU game :o

If the defense have a good game, create a few turnovers and FIU tend to do just that, then FAU will run away with this one. However, this is still a tough game to predict considering which team from FAU and for that matter FIU do decides to show.

Now, lets take into account - this is a rivalry game ( at least to the players ) the players should be pumped up for this one ad I think both teams will be ready for a hard hitting affair - turnovers will be key. I look for both team to play a very good game on both side of the ball.
FAU, however will prevail with the gamebeing decided in the last 2:00 minutes of the game - a possible field goal or could it be a defense plays that will put the game out of reach for FIU.

FAU 24 FIU 21 ( last minute field goal )
FAU 31 FIU 21 ( points by the D to put the game out of reach)

it looks like sam smith is out for the year after hurting his ankle against wku.

should be a decent matchup, with fau winning by 6 in a sloppy game.

I'll kick mine up a notch now that Smith is out. I don't know who will be hurting more. Us losing Danny or them losing Smith?
His absence should get FAU's defense off the field to avoid the long drives.
