After suffering two-straight losses, the Owls bounced back in emphatic fashion with a 52-33 win over Old Dominion – their first conference win of the season.

Devin Singletary was absolutely dominant on the ground, running for 168 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 19 attempts. Not only did he break Alfred Morris’ previously held record of most rushing yards in school history on the night, he also passed Tim Tebow and Marshall Faulk on the all-time list in FBS career rushing touchdowns.

Kerrith Whyte Jr. was productive on the ground as well, rushing for 61 yards and two touchdowns. But his play of the game was an 100-yard kickoff return touchdown to put the Owls back up by double digits in the third quarter.

The passing game, led by quarterback Chris Robison, was clicking in on all cylinders in the Owls’ victory. He threw for 339 yards and two touchdowns on the night and added a a rushing score. Both of his touchdown strikes went to tight end Harrison Bryant, who cleared 144 receiving yards on six catches. Wide receiver Jovon Durante finished the day with seven catches for 111 yards.

The FAU defense suffocated the Monarch’s in the first half, holding them to only seven first half points. But after two defensive starters got ejected in linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair and nickel cornerback Herb Miller, the former on a roughing the passer call and the latter for unsportsmanlike conduct, the unit leaked out 26 second-half points.

It wasn’t the prettiest defensive performance, but it was enough to keep the Owls ahead in the high-scoring home bout.

FAU heads into its bye week on a winning note, and will next play when it hits the road to take on Marshall on Oct. 20.
