Man, is FIU taking it to Louisville….

21-3 with 6:00 left in the first half.

Insane.

Just stop Hilton and you stop them…but, i guess that may be a lot to ask?

Not feeling so confident about keeping the streak alive this year after what I have seen from the Panthers thus far.

I envy their ooc sked this year, those are all winnable games.

Beat UCF and we'll beat them and all is right with the world.

UL showed some life with an impressive drive before the half:

21-10 Panthers at the break

UCF will easily take care of FIU.  They have one weapon and we have an all-american cornerback (Josh Robinson) who will easily handle him.  He was selected to the Bronko Nagurski Trophy Watch List.  Their defense is very undersized compared to our offensive line.  You guys are going to have a lot of problems when you face them.

For once, am going to agree with you ;D

Well, almost…you make a good point in the assignment category regarding Robinson…

BUT:

Think we will do OK ourselves…not like we haven't already faced off against this attack previously, and WON.

However, this year will be a dog fight, no doubt about that. One mistake and we could very easily see the streak come to an end…….

Panthers come away with the upset, and their first ever win against a BCS conference opponent:

FINAL: FIU 24  UL 17

But its much more than that for them in momentum…

Not impressed with UL…they have digressed in a big way in just a short amount of time.

The cards had an onside attempt with 1:48 left, but FIU recovered.

After a three and out, UL was set to receive the ball at the 20 with :38 left but made a mistake and tried to field the punt rather than let it go into the end zone.

With the Cardinals backed up on their own two yard line, the Panthers D closed in for the win.

TY Hilton had a record setting performance, posting 201 yards receiving for FIU.

Good for them. I hope the Owls come out swinging tomorrow at least show some cojones.  Cristobal deserves credit. I hope we land TY Hilton caliber type players next year with the stadium and the new chief in town.

Our DB's seem to be much better this year so if we get after the qb and cover Hilton the qb WILL make mistakes like he did last year. will be a battle, but still is a winnable game for the Owls!
