Sun Belt Conference Standings
Arky State favored by 7 over media darling ULM? Damn, how the might have fallen.
The importance of a quality QB is evident. When the star QB goes down, the odds of winning decreases. That is why FAU needs to keep a future QB in the works at all time.
Thursday's Sun Belt Score
Arkansas State 45, Louisiana-Monroe 23
Ryan Aplin threw a 70-yard touchdown pass to Taylor Stockemer to break a tie early in the third quarter, David Oku ran for 131 yards and three scores, and host Arkansas State held off Louisiana-Monroe on Thursday night to take the Sun Belt Conference lead.

(Updated through Thursday's game)
Obviously to improve their field goal kicking :)
Last week FAU added Niko Peros, a 2-year-old suffering from Fanconi anemia, to its football team. Here's a story about it from Care To Click .
Don't look for QB Quez Johnson to be named C-USA Offensive Player of the Week. He wasn't nominated. FAU chose Lucky Whitehead instead.
Free falling...45-38. WKU won the first half 31-14. FAU won the second half 31-7. Almost like watching two seperate games.
