The line has quickly moved to -17.

Stat to note:

That would be the most the Owls have been favored against an FBS team in four years.

During the 2008 season, they were -22.5 favorites against UNT.

They did reach -17.5 against FCS member Wagner for the 2012 opener.

That's a lot of points, no matter who you're playing.

Southern Miss went 12-2 in 2011, they beat an undefeated Houston team in the conf championship and won the Hawaii bowl, I assume it was the best season in their history. They haven't won a game since.

You'd have to put me on suicide watch if that happened to FAU.

Owls need to handle their business and stay focused and walk out with a win.

I agree. We need to play the team not their record and earn a W like with any other team. Hoping for a solid, injury free game.

+1  enough with bowl talk…lets focus on each game play the way we know we can play and eliminate the early season mistakes.  I want 6-6…one game at a time.

Dear Pat Chun,

Please do not hire Ellis Johnson. Seriously. Don't do it.

Thanks,

I like this guy more and more. I want him to make a case (4 wins) to be the next head coach here, I really do.

Dabo Swinney was the WR coach at Clemson, stepped in as interim when they fired their HC and there you have it. It can be done with a relatively unknown guy.

Look how much fun these guys are having:

And how bout we one up Princeton;

Princeton successfully runs formation with three quarterbacks on the field at once (Video) | Dr. Saturday - Yahoo Sports

They used 3 qb's on the field at once and I still beleive we should put all 4 of ours out there, just from looking at the Princeton game video, our guys are WAY more athletic and fast! Thsoe 4 along with a TE and Dukes at WR and man would that be tough to defense, especially these last three teams we play.

Bury 'em all Owls, don't just win, BURY 'EM!
