What’s Going To Happen
While almost all of the other Florida schools cancelled their games this weekend, Florida Atlantic is going to Wisconsin to escape Irma, and FIU will get away from Miami by playing Alcorn State in Birmingham.
The Golden Panthers will have to try focusing on a decent Braves team, while trying to escape the potential problems at home for a few hours.
Alcorn State hung 50 on the Miles Golden Bears last week, with QB Lenorris Footman hitting 21-of-28 passes, but with two picks. The running game was stronger, with two 100-yard rushers helping the Braves run for 314 yards and four scores.
FIU couldn’t stop anything in the blowout loss to UCF to start the season, but there were some bright spots. QB Alex McGough came up with a few good throws and the offense wasn’t awful, but the secondary can’t be bombed on again. It won’t be.
Even in the strange surroundings and with all the issues, FIU will rally around the situation and show a lot more defense than it did in Orlando.
