Reflections and Notes:


Cross Country:


  • Senior Michael Vidal set a school record in the 5K during the second annual FAU Cross Country Invitational. Vidal ran a time of 15:25.3 seconds to lead all other male runners in the event.
  • Both the men’s and women’s teams won their respective competitions during the meet.



Women’s Soccer:


  • Sophomore forward Asta Arnadottir scored two goals during the Owls’ game versus Miami on Friday, bringing her season total to three. That ties her with junior forward Geovana Alves for the team lead.
  • Redshirt junior defender Erica Burt scored her first career goal as an Owl during Friday’s game. Burt was a transfer who played her first two years at USF before coming to Boca Raton.





  • Football is still without a road win in the Charlie Partridge era, sitting at 0-8 after Saturday’s loss. Their last away win was on November 2, 2013 against the University of Southern Mississippi.
  • Jake and Jenson Stoshak both saw the field in Saturday’s game, becoming the first set of brothers to play at the same time in program history. Jenson led the team with 114 yards of receiving and one touchdown.

Hashtag of the Week:



What’s being billed as the biggest football game in the history of Florida Atlantic earns the honor of hashtag of the week. Within the course of a few hours on Sept. 4, all 5,000 student tickets were claimed by fans, leaving some disappointed and without a ticket. Along with rising ticket prices on the secondary market, the hype around the game has built up to the spilling point.


Which leads us to the question of the week: was it right that FAU gave 5,000 tickets to students? Should there have been more available, despite the lack of student support in recent years? Let us know with the hashtag #UP11thhour on Twitter or e-mail the writer at the address listed below. Your response could be featured in next week’s edition.
