It’s a non conference match up between two teams who really need a win to get their season on the right track. The Bethune Wildcats will make the trip to the FAU Football Stadium to take on the Florida Atlantic Owls.
This is the first match up between in recent history which is surprising because they have had a lot of mutual opponents.
The Bethune Wildcats will look for a big road upset when they visit Boca Raton Florida on Saturday afternoon and take on the Owls.
They come into this game with a 1-1 record, but the loss did come to the Miami Hurricanes and they were actually able to stick with them for a half before they pulled away in the second half.
In their last game they played a pretty back and forth game with the Southeastern Louisiana Lions but were able to squeak out a victory winning by a final score of 28-23.
The brightest spot for this team is at quarterback. Larry Brihm Jr. was really good against the Lions and threw for two touchdowns and 354 yards.
He is going to need to have a really big game if the Wildcats want to move to 2-1 on the season.
To win this game they need to control the pace of play. They need to limit the possessions that the Owls are allowed to have.
If they allow the Owls to have too many possessions this is going to be a really long night.
Florida Atlantic Owls
On the other side of this match up is the Florida Atlantic Owls who really need a win after losing their first two games of the season.
They faced some really tough competition in the first two games having to play Navy at home and then having to travel to Camp Randell to take on the Wisconsin Badgers.
In both games the defense was terrible, and the offense couldn’t get a whole lot of anything going and that led to two straight defeats.
For the Owls to have success they need a good rushing attack and that is something that has been missing the first two games. Their leading rusher in a game had less then 90 yards and that won’t cut it for a team that really wants to pound the rock.
To win this game they just need to forget about the first two games. Those are in the past now and nothing can be done about it.
They do need to come out strong though and really try to build a lead early and then run the ball the rest of the way.
