Considering UT has a 28% chance of winning (ESPN) i hope it will be a long evening for the both of us! :Big-Grin:

Ask UTSA about their 99.9% ESPN chance to win with 1:06 left on the clock… Hi, looking forward to the game.

Still some time to go and things could always change, but rain is forecast pretty much all day for Saturday…

Latest "probability" is FAU at 58%.

On a side note:

Rain can wreak havoc on us…we have never been a good rain team.

But considering you guys depend on the pass more than we do, I am curious as to what your thoughts are given the likelihood we will see some weather Saturday?

I bet our DB's are very excited . They have one premier WR and he is tough . I think our backs are up for it. But, if they don't watch the run, they have a premier runner that can hurt us. Big challenge for our DCo.

We have far more than 1 WR. We have 3 or 4 very, very capable WR's. We do have a premier RB though, the leading rusher in conference. We can come at you in several ways from several angles.

Our D can be suspect and we have not been able to create many turnovers. Rush D is the best aspect of our D, but we can still be out there at times too long.

I expect this to be a good game with 2-3 3rd quarter game changing plays that will allow a team to separate itself.

Glory to the Green!

With this current team, this year and last, we have played in bad weather twice. We didn't play particularly well in either game, but went 1-1. We have a good running game so if we have to lay on it to get the ball moving we will be able to. We have a decent OL, and they are very big. They can open holes once they get some positive momentum going. If the weather goes completely south, this falls into favor a bit for FAU. You guys rely on your running game a bit more through necessity as is and you are playing at home.

FIU?

Pull up the Miami thread from last year. That thread makes this one look like a group of Harvard and MIT scientists discussing the correlation between Quantum Physics and Finite Elements.  :Big-Grin:
