Fearless Prediction - Shula Bowl VIII
Time to close out the season in style. I for one am glad that FAU gets to close at FIU. Even though a bowl is out of reach, there is still something to play for in this one. Pride is on the line and both teams will be up for this one.
It is time for the coaches to show all their cards. I expect this to be a high scoring game with lots of big plays. FIU has given up 40+ points in six of their losses. FAU has given up 40+ in three of their losses. The difference between these two teams is largely that FAU has shown a more explosive offensive attack scoring 40+ points twice on the season. FIU on the other hand has not reached the 40 point mark yet this season. Look for the defenses to be checked at the entrance to the stadium. I see this one as an offensive battle that pits FAU's balanced attack against the explosiveness of T.Y. Hilton and his ability to create big plays on offense and special teams.
