With Lane Kiffin’s first time around, the Owls didn’t play a single away game in Florida. That led to nearly 6,500 miles worth of flights to everywhere from Madison, Wisconsin to Norfolk, Virginia.

This year, the Owls will travel to the University of Central Florida and Florida International, knocking down some of their travel time.
