FAU has something to play for after Marshall’s surprising loss last week. There is a crack open.
Southern Miss has basically been out of the CUSA race all season long. They are not playing for anything right now.
Thursday night football gathers eyeballs but this might not be much of a game.
The Owls definitely had some success with previous coach Lane Kiffin. Now they are having success with new coach Charlie Strong.
To say that things are different is an understatement. Under Kiffin the Owls were all about offense and this season they have done a complete 180.
I know they play in CUSA so I am not going to say that they are one of the best defenses in the country, but their numbers are undeniable – 6th in yards allowed and 3rd in points.
That gives a limited offense a chance to win games. On offense, they run the ball pretty well and hope for the best when they have to put the ball in the air.
Their winning formula should work just fine against a Southern Miss team that is just not very good.
Southern Miss Golden Eagles
This is a program where nothing has gone right this season. They may have a couple of wins but closing the season with a win against a good team would be a surprise.
The Golden Eagles are a proud program but they need a reset. Coaching is just one area they need to get things pointed in a different direction.
The offense has been a struggle all season long. In two of their last three games, they have failed to score more than a touchdown. Against a tough D like FAU they might not get much more.
Southern Miss can play spoiler in this spot. Maybe that is enough to get a maximum effort here. Even that might not be good enough though.

Free Week 15 NCAA Football Pick
It is hard to like giving up so many points with a team that does not even score 20ppg. That is the recommendation here though.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: FAU -8
To get the cover the Owls may need to hold the Golden Eagles to the 12ppg they are allowing. If they do it should mean they have more than enough opportunities to post 20+ points to cover.
I also think the under is a really good play, even though that is a very low number. No team is going to score 30 points in this one.
