Fearless Predictions 2023: Week 2 FAU vs Ohio
Inquiring minds want to know the status of Ohio quarterback Kurtis Rourke, but will it really matter all that much?
The Owls have a bunch of work to do on defense, particularly in the secondary, but the area they need to perform in seems fairly strong - run defense.
Ohio likes to run it a bit more than pass it, and that may play a more prominent role on Saturday with the eventual status of Rourke in motion.
FAU should be able to rattle off a few torch plays like we saw against Monmouth, and that evens things out with a secondary that may or may not do the same.
Bottom line: This will be a totally different game than Week 1 regardless of who starts at quarterback for the Bobcats. Expecting a close contest.
FAU 27 Ohio 24

Looking to see what adjustments Roc will make, or is he the same old Roc we're used to. I was mostly happy with offense and special teams, but do we have enough firepower to get into shootouts? And looking ahead, what is our D going to do with a super angry and salty and chip-on-their-shoulder Clemson? This is a huge litmus test to see if we're even going to be bowl-eligible.
Hopefully we cause some turnovers
