FAU heads on the road to play what is arguably its most important game of the season, a matchup with the No.16 UCF Knights.

The Owls’ defense has a tough task ahead of them in guarding star quarterback McKenzie Milton. The junior, who has been touted as a dark-horse Heisman trophy candidate, has been torching defenses to start the season. Through two games he has thrown for 589 yards and two touchdowns, completing 63.4 percent of his passes.

FAU needs to improve on the defensive side of the ball in order to pick up an upset win over the Knights. But, just in case they can’t, the Owls have an offensive weapon of their own in running back Devin Singletary.

Singletary is coming off of a performance where he ran for an FAU record five rushing touchdowns against Bethune-Cookman. The star running back is looking to have an even better game this week, as the Owls will need his efforts to match the explosive offense of UCF.

Chris Robison, who was named the starting quarterback for the third game in a row, is looking to repeat his 471-yard performance against Air Force after disappointing in Week 3. Watch out for him and his favorite target, Jovon Durante, to be an x-factor in this game.

The game kicks off tomorrow at 7 p.m. at UCF and will be nationally televised on ESPN.
