UTEP (3-6) vs. Florida Atlantic (2-7) Game Preview
Date: Saturday, Nov. 12
Game Time: 6:00 pm
Venue: American Sports Network
Network: FAU Football Stadium, Boca Raton, FL
Finally, Florida Atlantic was able to come up with a win over an FBS team, breaking through a seven-game losing streak to beat the worst team in college football – Rice.
There are still a slew of problems, with a run defense that gets gouged too easily, and a secondary that doesn’t generate enough big plays, but even with a good ground game, the big problem is an offense that just can’t get things moving well enough.
The Owls can’t generate enough pop, and it can’t sustain anything positive. They’re not miserable offensively, but they haven’t been able to create their own breaks.
UTEP gets the Rice free-space next week and finishes up at home against North Texas – there’s still hope.
The defense isn’t getting enough production against the run, and overall there have been way, way too many mistakes with the turnover margin a problem, but win out, and go to a bowl.
Unlike FAU, though, the losses have generally been ugly. The Owls have been very, very close to coming up with a solid year, and this week, it’ll build off the 336-yard, four score day from last week – led by 252 yards and three scores from freshman Devin Singletary – to get a second-straight win.
And it’ll ruin UTEP’s season along the way.
