FAU
So we are a 3 point underdog at home this week against FAU. ESPN has us predicted to win only 2 more games this season. It's time to prove them wrong and start winning this week.

RE: FAU
If we don't find some offense, they'll beat us by much more than 3.

Empty Sue has literally been decimated by injuries. The FAU result was not a surprise to many of their fans in the know. MTSU only had five of the original 11 offensive starters from week one.

FAU has a good offense, particularly on the ground, but our defense should be up to the task, at least for awhile.
FAU has two pretty good RBs in Singletary and Howell.
Returning to #1 on the depth chart, QB Jason Driskel is an efficient passer who can run when necessary.
6'1" DeAndre McNeal is the primary go-to WR and an effective weapon but our DBs should not be overmatched.
I do not like the matchup with the Owl TE, 6'5" Harrison Bryant. He is big and fast, and could overwhelm our LBs and overpower over our DBs.


The FAU defense is not particularly good; either against the pass or the run.
This will give us the opportunity to get a sense of where our offense is going.

As stated, we will need to generate some offense or our D will not last through four quarters.
Albany was shut out by Elon Saturday, and UMass' success vs UT was against what subsequently has shown itself to be a Vol squad in total disarray.

Compughter ratings has FAU beating us by 9.
I am not going to predict a score or outcome as I just have no idea at all.

RE: FAU
they've got some speed on offense and use a lot of misdirection. If our defense stays disciplined we should be able to contain them. our offense is a big question mark still in my mind but as 78 pointed out FAU's defense is not great so hopefully they find some rhythm and more importantly the endzone.

RE: FAU
MTSU turned the ball over 4 times and got 0 sacks against FAU. I think ODU will do much better in both categories. FAU does have a good running game but our linebackers have already proven that they are better than we thought. Steven Williams may never play in a tougher game/situation than he did last weekend at VT so things will only get better from here. He is very poised and should be able to be very effective against a below average FAU defense.
