Future FAU Football Schedules
The game will be the season opener for both sides, who last met in 2008. The year before, the Owls got the best of the Gophers from Minneapolis, getting their first-ever win over a P5 program. The game will be on a Thursday, September 3rd.
The Owls were originally slated to play Illinois on September 5th, 2020. That game has been pushed back to 2023. The date, and other information surrounding that game, is TBA.

The game will be played on Thursday, 9/3 at UMN. The Gophers were FAU's first-ever win over a P5 program (42-39 in 2007).

What do you all think about this addition? This will be FAU's fourth Big Ten opponent in 6 years, more than any other P5 conference.

Thought about You as soon as I read of this change! Sorry!!!
Art Vandelay saidI'd rather we lean away from FCS games (for the time being). And away from opening @top-ten-teams too. Something in the middle, maybe? Liberty, you say? Fine, sure. I like UCF/UCF/USF, over these three years. I know what I said about top-ten-teams, I just said it, but, I'd like to see games against MIA as often as possible. An FAU, FIU and MIA round-robin. It ain't gonna happen, but…Posted On: Sep 5th 2018, 11:27 PM
ODU got paid 1.3 million that is nothing to sneeze at.
