Wow that line is bigger than I expected. But with how we have played on the road we have earned it.

Marshall also WAXED FIU yesterday.

That moved them up in the Top 25 polls as well:

AP 23rd

USA Today 22nd.

I will take the Owls and 26.5 points.  

Not saying we will win…I think the best team they have beaten this year is Middle Tenn.  That doesn't mean they are bad, but they haven't beaten anyone that makes me think: wow!

Nope they have not, and THAT will keep them out of the playoff AND even out of a BigBowl games. All they scheduled this year besides CUSA games were 3 MAC teams and one FCS. One of the weakest (if not THE weakest) schedules in the country!

Stlll would LOVE to see our Owls knock 'em down a peg - they think they are all that anyhow! C'mon Owls, ruin that "perfect" season in thier own house - you CAN do it!

Cato's about to run into the buzzsaw known as the FAU D!!

Eat Wheaties, play focused and hit hard then let the chips fall where they may.

Maybe some our guys can catch up on old times with their south Florida friends at Marshall.

looking over Marshall's schedule. The only really tough games Marshall has could be us, and Rice. That is about it for the tough opponents.  Remember we took Marshall to the limit last season before losing on that last second field goal…

FIU just showed us the exit, in fairly convincing fashion and they were just whooped by Marshall, so let's not get too excited.

It all depends on what team shows up, the team they seem to leave in Boca every time we hit the road is the one we need in WV to have a shot. Owls are not migratory birds and it shows! We're gonna need 7 homes games to get a bowl bid at this rate.

we almost had them last year.  hopefully we can go in with some confidence, play uptempo offense and wear their defense down.  maybe we can shock the world.
