Places bet on UCF immediately
-Dwight D. Eisenhower
UCONN got 486 yards with 220 rushing for a 4.8 av. and passed for 266 with 41 attempts and no sacks against. BUT UCONN did lose the TO battle with 3 to none for UCF.
Control the ball and tackle on D is needed of course. The D should be rested as many played short roles vs. BCU.
C'mon Owls players and Coaches - THIS CAN BE YOUR MOMENT!
Could be a long night.
As I keep saying…grab a cocktail and enjoy the ride.
That being said, we HAVE to find a way to RUN the football in this game and to avoid turning it over. No way can the Owls afford many 3-and-out series or giving the Knights short fields because their offense is the real deal. Like any game where you are a prohibitive underdog, controlling the ball by establishing a run game, turnovers, and special teams can be a difference maker. Unfortunately, our special teams have been a difference maker for the opposition so far - and that is what really scares me.
It will take a much better game than we have seen so far for FAU to even hang around in this game. I think the team is capable, but they need to find something this Friday to use as a spark for the rest of the season.
