BOCA RATON For the first time since 2008, Florida Atlantic is preparing for postseason play. Though FAU (9-3, 8-0) clinched bowl eligibility on Nov. 3 and a spot in the Conference USA championship game earlier this month, the Owls are now officially getting ready for their first postseason game since a 24-21 win in Detroit over Central Michigan on Dec. 26, 2008 in the Motor City Bowl. FAU completed the fourth 8-0 season in C-USA history with last Saturday’s 31-12 win over Charlotte. Saturday’s C-USA title game pits FAU against North Texas (9-3, 7-1), a team the Owls beat 69-31 on Oct. 21. “I feel like we’ve done a lot, we’ve accomplished a lot,” FAU linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair said. “We’re not where we want to be, but looking back, we’ve done a lot of progress in the summer and even in December when the coaches first got here.” As the Sun Belt conference — FAU’s home from 2004-12 — does not have a championship game, the Owls will be playing in their first FBS title game. Here are some of the key details FAU fans need to know prior to Saturday’s C-USA title game. read more: http://www.palmbeachpost.com/sports/college-football/after-perfect-conference-usa-season-fau-set-for-first-title-game/udHM8yHEcVglqquUBp61KL/
The Florida Atlantic football team began the season against Navy and Wisconsin. They were arguably the toughest opponents on this year’s schedule, but the Owls are now preparing for another difficult challenge. Saturday’s matchup against North Texas marks the first in a challenging three-game stretch that could determine the outcome of the season. After North Texas, the Owls play at Western Kentuckyand Marshall. The Hilltoppers are the defending Conference USA champions, and Marshall in undefeated in league play. “It’s going to be tough,” FAU linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair said. “Every week it’s going to be a fight. It’s kind of up for grabs for everybody. You always want to stay focused on who’s in front of you and trying to get too far down the road.” tead more: http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/fau-owls/fl-sp-fau-north-texas-preview-20171020-story.html
