FIU (8-4) vs. Toledo (7-5) Game Preview
Three Reasons Why You Should Watch The Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl
– After getting rolled 28-3 by Temple in last year’s Gasparilla Bowl, it’s redemption time for FIU to close with a bang. The same goes for Toledo, who finished up last year with a puzzling 34-0 Dollar General Bowl loss to Appalachian State. Motivation won’t be an issue for either side.
– This might have been a bit of a disappointing season for the Rockets after winning the 2017 MAC championship, but they got on a roll winning four of their last five games with the offense kicking it into high gear. The expected powerhouse passing game sputtered a bit too often, but the offense still managed to score 45 points or more seven times – winning all seven games.
– Florida International turned in a strong second campaign under head coach Butch Davis, rolling to an 8-3 start before suffering a tough loss to Marshall to get knocked out of the Conference USA title chase. The Golden Panther offense is balanced when it has to be, the defense is fantastic at taking the ball away, and overall this is a solid team.
