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.
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.
352Owl saidI 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.Posted On: Nov 11th 2013, 10:37 AM
+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.
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:
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!
