Lane Kiffin’s Owls are rolling through Conference USA right now and probably have their toughest remaining test this week with a road game at Louisiana Tech.
The Bulldogs’ bowl hopes are hanging on for dear life as they dropped a tough 1 point loss to North Texas last week.
Florida Atlantic Owls
The Owls have rattled off 5 straight wins after losing 3 of their first 4 and they are doing it with offense.
They are averaging 47.4 points per game over their last 5 games and have a very dominant rushing attack.
The Owls are 7th in the nation in yards per rush, 10th in the nation in rushing yards per game, and 1st in the nation in rushing touchdowns with 35.
They are led by tailback Devin Singletary who has 1256 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns on the season. Quarterback Jason Driskel has contributed on the ground as well with 6 rushing touchdowns of his own.
12 different guys on the team have registered a carry of over 10 yards. So the rushing attack is strong but also deep.
The defense hasn’t necessarily been dominant but they have forced turnovers. The Owls are first in the nation in turnover margin per game. The defense averages nearly 3 takeaways per game.
Louisiana Tech Bulldogs
Louisiana Tech continues to lose close games and their inability to play in tight spots will be tough to overcome against Florida Atlantic.
Last week’s one point loss to North Texas marked their third loss this season by 1 point. They also had a 7 point double overtime loss.
For the Bulldogs to find a way to win the close games, they will need to find a way to put productive fourth quarter drives together.
In each of the three 1 point losses, they had ample time to come up with game-winning score but haven’t found a way to do it. This week, they will also need to figure out a way to stop the run against the overpowering FAU rushing attack.
They are 108th in rushing yards allowed per attempt. That doesn’t bode well in this matchup.
They are also 81st in the nation in completion percentage – just under 57 percent.
That won’t bode well either as the Bulldogs are sure to get down at some point and will need to find ways to fight back.
It is easy to imagine that all of these close losses have to be deflating for the Bulldogs. This is an ever important game in their quest for a bowl bid so it will be important that they have a short memory from last week’s tough defeat.

Free Week 11 NCAA Football Pick
This is really a bad matchup for Louisiana Tech against this Florida Atlantic rushing attack. Lane Kiffin’s Owls are not that interesting in playing defense so the Bulldogs should be able to keep pace for much of the game.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Over 67
I don’t love the Bulldogs’ chances of pulling off the upset as they have struggled in close games and I think eventually the Owl run game will become too much. The over is the better play because there is no question Florida Atlantic will score a bunch. A few stops for them late and they could cover the line as well.
