3. The FIU backfield had a bigger day
The FIU offensive backfield had to deal with a wee bit of adversity this season.
RB Anthony Jones was a victim of a drive-by shooting earlier in the season, he missed most of the year, but came back late to be a part of the running back rotation, finishing the year with 246 yards with a score.
Against Toledo, he went off, he ran for 92 yards and three scores, including an 18-yard dash in the final minute to effectively put the game away.
Grad transfer QB James Morgan was the star of the FIU season. He was efficient, effective, and managed to be exactly what the offense needed. But he was out against Toledo with an injured shoulder.
In stepped backup Christian Alexander, and he was terrific, completing 17-of-26 passes for 209 yards and a score, and was second behind Jones with 83 rushing yards.
