If FAU plays offensively and calls plays how they did in the second half, they should be OK. Depends on how much one wants to buy into USM routing North Texas.†

Good news is this game is actually on local affiliates. 401 of you have Xfinity and live in PB County. So I may have wasted the $10 I spent on an HDMI to iPhone cord, lol.†

Emmons and Charles are listed as questionable after picking up knocks against Charlotte.

As an athlete and a competitor I cherish ANY win, even if it was in no means perfect, ya then learn and get better as your goal!!! And sadly it is America that has become so entitled and so spoiled! And the internet has only fueled this.

Way to get the win Owls, go get S. Miss!!!

I really hope the conference comes up with for this game if this Hurricane is coming close.


I would not mind a Thursday night duel.

I asked Coach Taggart yesterday if there have been any discussuions about moving this Saturday's game as Hurricane Delta looks to gain strength before making landfall in Louisiana on Friday.

He said no such discussions have taken place and he hopes FAU will be back on the gridiron on Saturday.

That said, Taggart feels sorry for the central Gulf coast for the onslaught of storms they have had to deal with this year.

MY OPINION: There's no way we play in Hattiesburg on Saturday. Absolutely no way.

We will continue to update y'all as information comes in.

FAU administrators are in talks with their counterparts at USM concerning this Saturday's game.

As of now, the game is still on to take place in Hattiesburg this Saturday.

Mizzou is supposed to play LSU Saturday, and they are talking about moving the game to Missouri and it has been reported by Dave Matter of the St.Louis Post Dispatch that a decision is expected tomorrow morning.


We could possibly hear a decision around that same timeline.

Thatís a timeline that makes sense. All of the logistical things, primarily planes and hotels, would likely keep this from lingering into Thursday or beyond.†

My uneducated guess remains we will know the final decision by 6 p.m. †ET Wednesday (C-USA offices are in Texas, so end of business there) at the latest. Good find, Shane.†
