A Toledo-FAU matchup would have been pretty nice.

Can't believe FAU gets to play a bowl game in their own stadium. Lucky for their fans.

That dB for FAU should have been tossed for targeting... We lost our top defensive player in the MCC for a less vicious hit...

Eh, it's about what I guessed would happen. This is one of those games you'd love to have but you can't expect it to likely go our way with this kinda matchup. We need to start a bowl game in Indianapolis (one that's actually our tie-in instead of being the Quick Lane alternate) so we can get some home crowds on our side, maybe switching Boise to there would be a nice move.

Akron looks like they don’t want to be there.

Now FAU is running up the score going for 2 in a blowout.

This whole game has been a Lane Kiffin infomercial.

We can blame the conference for this embarrassment.

Why didn't Toledo go play FAU to match conference champs ala Marshall and NIU in 2014?

As an FAU fan I want to thank your team for coming down here and bringing so many fans.

Your Defense played us hard in the first half, we just wore you down.

There was one area where Akron kicked our ass.

Your band was AMAZING!!!! After you guys played at halftime I couldnt even watch FAU's band.

And the fact this league tied itself up contractually like that is why this Commish is an imbecile. Toledo should’ve been in this bowl.

Yikes, I thought it would be a an easy win for FAU but not by 47 points.

I fully expect NIU to lose by double digits. Our running back Jordan Huff is not playing. He was our only offense as our QB is terrible.

Ouch.

When the best thing an opponent in a bowl game can say is “your band is better than ours” then you know you got your a$$ handed to you in a football game.03-lmfao

I remember from days gone by (90s) the MAC obtained a 2nd bowl so the loser of the MACC 'could be protected', meaning guaranteed a bowl game.

This is a case where that wise policy turned out to be a debacle.

I guess my question is how did the Zips get to face a red hot team? That had the makings of a bad match up the minute it was announced.
