Great job by the Owls today!
Congratulations to the players, coaches and staff!
And one more thing...
Folks, I think we have turned the corner and better things are ahead for the Owls!
Winning on the road is never easy, but it looks like the worst is over and we could be building something here.
Chi, lets not get ahead of ourselves...it was a good win and lets leave it at that
I'm with Calvin. Lets enjoy the win today. Then lets get ready to kick the heck out of FIU. We have some young kids playing that need to understand, we must beat FIU.This game would make a lot of Dade ,Broward, and Palm Beach kids reconsider FAU as there future team. Other than the last two years, we beat FIU in football and we still beat them in baseball and basketball. I know Mario had two good years, but how did he get put on such a high pedistall. They are in dead last ! Lets keep them there . GO OWLS !.

WKU Announces Suspension of Robinson
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Western Kentucky University has suspended Tyree Robinson for the first half of the Hilltoppers upcoming game at Louisiana-Lafayette. The decision was announced Tuesday.
“Coach Taggart and I are self-imposing a first half suspension on Tyree Robinson due to the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty he received for a hit above the shoulders during the fourth quarter of our game this past Saturday against Florida Atlantic,” said WKU Athletic Director Todd Stewart. “Tyree did not have any malicious intent, but we all support the heightened sensitivity on tackles of this nature. The suspension will be served during the first half of this Saturday’s game at Louisiana-Lafayette.”
It's about damn time!
Thank you Howard!
FAU will honor program founder Howard Schnellenberger by naming the field of its on-campus stadium after him.
Players have started classes and feel like fall camp is over. Most coaches, on the other hand, don't believe camp ends until they start installing...
For those interested...
We will be open this coming Sunday, August 17...so that fans can come by and have access to The Best FAU Gear...
