Football Preview: Owls look to go Gator hunting in Gainesville

November 18, 2015

Football will seek the biggest upset in program history when they travel to Gainesville on Saturday to face the University of Florida Gators. Florida Atlantic (2-8, 2-5 Conference USA) is coming off a seven-point loss to Middle Tennessee. The offense was not able to get momentum going, as they ran for a team total 75 rushing yards — only the second time all season that the Owls were unable to eclipse the 100-yard rushing mark. The Gators (9-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference), who are coming off a 21-14 win over the University of South Carolina Gamecocks this past Saturday, are currently ranked No. 8 in the nation, according to the newest College Football Playoff Rankings.

Coming off a 35-19 loss to the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers last weekend, football (2-7, 2-4 C-USA) will be looking to bounce back at home this Saturday when they face the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders (4-5, 3-2 C-USA). The Blue Raiders have held the advantage in the matchup between the two teams since they first played in 2003, winning nine out of their 12 total meetings including the last seven. The Owls fell short in last season’s game — 35-34 — in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, when former starting quarterback Austin Grammer threw the game-winning touchdown to wide receiver Marcus Henry with 12 seconds remaining in the game.
