Florida Atlantic (2-2) vs. Middle Tennessee (1-2) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
When will the Middle Tennessee offense finally get going?
It hasn’t been able to run the ball, and getting points at times has been like pulling teeth. The passing game is efficient enough, but it’s not leading to much.
But that’s what happens when you go on the road to face Vanderbilt and Georgia.
Now, the Blue Raiders get to play an FBS team their own size.
But this is where Florida Atlantic has to get the season going, too.
It was about at this point last year when the machine turned on, but the offense has already started to work. The defense struggled against UCF and Oklahoma, but that’s UCF and Oklahoma.
This is where the Middle Tennessee passing game rocks, cranking up at least 250 yards at a 65% clip with three touchdowns throws. But the FAU running game is working.
Running for 376 yards and six scores against Bethune-Cookman is one thing, but coming up with 320 yards and four touchdowns against UCF is another.
The FAU offense will do just a wee bit more in a wild firefight. Get ready for a whole lot of tempo swings and a lot of points, but the Middle Tennessee defense will have a harder time getting off the field.
