> Sun Belt Standings
Arkansas State QB Ryan Aplin broke former FAU QB Rusty Smith's Sun Belt career record of 10,112 passing yards (2006-09) in Saturday's victory vs. Troy.
Aplin now has 10,307 career passing yards.
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.
