2017 FIU Golden Panthers Football Schedule Realistic Worst Case Scenario
After getting destroyed by UCF and Indiana, a loss at Rice means a 1-3 start with the pressure on to beat Charlotte. FIU gets by the 49ers, but can’t handle the Tulane option attack and get stunned at home by UTSA, to go along with road losses to Middle Tennessee and Marshall to ensure a losing season. Throw in the loss to the Kiffins at Florida Atlantic, and Year One under Butch Davis is a total clunker.
