FAU Owls win Conference USA Championship


"I would love to play Bama".

Exiting it, that streak has now reached nine in a row as FAU (10-3) jumped out to a huge lead on North Texas (9-4) then "held on" for a 41-17 win.

Meanwhile, arguably the best defensive performances in program history rendered North Texas, the second-best C-USA offense behind FAU, impotent in the first half, limiting the Mean Green to 141 yards of offense and battering Mason Fine, sacking him five times.

FAU freshman linebacker Akileis Leroy (36) slide tackles North Texas freshman running back Evan Johnson (26) after he attempts to go for a first down.

Lane Kiffin is already a hot coaching commodity, but I'm thinking he just got hotter after winning the Conference USA title in his first year. Even if the Owls did, it has officially paid off now. I think things get lost. "So you put all those together. you thought this could be a place where he achieved a level of success that he had not achieved before".

Really, this was the only way for the regular season to end for Lane Kiffin and Florida Atlantic. The Owls are averaging 283.2 yards rushing and 196.8 yards passing so far this season.
