Van Camp Throws for Three Touchdowns; Owls Win Third Straight


Van Camp Throws for Three Touchdowns; Owls Win Third Straight

Defense stops two-point conversion in 24-23 slip past Louisiana

Games can be ugly at times, but a win is a win. For Florida Atlantic, tonight's 24-23 slip past Louisiana was both, as the Owls won their third straight game.

“It was some of the best football we played offensively and defensively, and some of the worst football we played offensively and defensively,” Head Coach Howard Schnellenberger said.

FAU came out of the gate with a new and efficient no-huddle package that helped the offense quickly as Quarterback Jeff Van Camp connected with fullback Xavier Stinson on a play-action pass for a four-yard touchdown to put the Owls up 7-0 on the opening drive.

The Rajin’ Cajun’s offense responded to the score with a big pass play of their own. Sophomore quarterback Blaine Gautier, who was starting his first career game, found tight end Ladarius Green wide open for a 63-yard gain. FAU’s defense however made its first big play of the night, as linebacker Malik Eugene recovered a fumble inside the Owl's own red zone.

Van Camp quickly went back to work, connecting with Lester Jean, for his second touchdown of the day. The 45-yard connection gave FAU a 14-0 first quarter lead, and the offense looked as good as it had been all season totaling 174 yards in the first quarter.

“We moved down very efficiently, we were clicking on all cylinders in the no-huddle and that’s something we haven’t really done that much of this season,” tight end Rob Housler said.
