FAU @ ODU Sat., 10/07, 6:00 P.M. ET
In this series a home team had lost every time. Will the trend continue? Or will the home team finally buck this trend.

Either team could win this one. If we don't get more offensive production than we've shown thus far then FAU will win this one.

Lord it would be nice to be 2-0 in conference. The team has some momentum, lets see if they can keep it rolling. ODU is certainly no cupcake.

ODU defense looked legit against Virginia Tech in the first half. It was 0-3 well into the second quarter, and actually VT scored their first touchdown on a lucky deflection. But, the offense struggled to move the ball against that Bud Foster defense and the D got gassed. I expect another strong defensive performance from ODU.

Hey, this had been OUR excuse for the longest time! "We were tied with Miami midway through the 3rd", "we were in it against 12th-ranked USF midway through the fourth", "we were tied with #7 Georgia midway through the second". We almost invented that! We have patented that.

Fair enough, but ODU does have a good defense. I expect a low scoring game.

I expect a low-scoring rockfight type of game, much like some of our basketball games. Team that makes the most mistakes will lose this one. You'll pull down at least one interception and we'll make somebody in your backfield fumble the ball.

Do you have any evidence to support this claim. Better yet, do you have any evidence that ODU's defense is better than FAU's? Keep in mind, not even the biggest FAU homers would suggest that our defense is any good.

The Monarchs are second nationally in sacks with 17 and an average of 4.25 sacks per game -- behind only Michigan at 4.5 and with a bye week and only four games. FAU is tied for 90th with 8 sacks in five games and an average of 1.6 sacks per game.

Before anyone says that we only got 1 sack against each VT and UNC, I'm willing to bet FAU's offensive line is closer to UMASS than VT.
