2023 FAU Football Schedule
So Smitty asked me to help out with the alumni gathering. It will be a lot easier not being homecoming. I live an hour away and have a place to stay there.
And away schedule, other than the $$ games, is winnable well.
And I do believe we will be coached and prepared MUCH better now!
As always, GO OWLS!!!!!!!!!!!
The AAC schedule will be a challenge and entertaining every game.
I remember a few years back (2015-2016) when we were elated whenever one of our rare games make it to "national television". And don't get me started about how all our games were on facebook or stadium and had like 200 viewers…What a joke of a conference.
We're in the big leagues now and the TV marketing alone will do wonders for us. And we've been able to accomplish so much with the C-USA media deal of like 400k…I'm so excited to see what we can do with millions.
Then along came new leadership and the inability to pivot strategically in the new space…also, they turned down ESPN's offer to play on Thursday's for obvious reasons - which allowed the MAC and the Sun Belt to grow.
Mute point now, I am just glad we don't have the non Saturday games aside from one.
FAU Fan saidI understand that the AAC schedule, with one 14 team conference was created to allow alternating teams to come to FAU each year, not (2) 7 team divisions playing the same 6 teams in the east and 2 out of western division each year.

The only every year AAC game for us is South Florida. The other 12 rotate. 28 spots over 4 years.
So you play the other 12 at least twice in a four year span with 4 of those teams played 3 times . The 4 teams we play 3 times in 4 years this cycle are ECU, Charlotte, UAB and Tulsa
That said… this schedule is a GAUNTLET. Such quality opponents we get in Boca too - ECU, UTSA, and Tulane… all quality programs coming off good and great seasons with followings that travel very well.
2023 is going to really be the start of something new in FAU history.
