Football: Owls drop final home game of season 24-17 to Middle Tennessee

November 15, 2015

Football lost their final home game of the season to the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders 24-17 in a rain-soaked game. MTSU finished with 479 total yards, including 179 rushing yards. The Owls (2-8, 2-5 C-USA), who finished with 297 total yards of offense, only had 75 total rushing yards. Two of the Owls’ leading rushers this season left the game due to injuries, with Trey Rodriguez leaving at the end of the first quarter and Jay Warren leaving the game early in the third quarter. The Owls’ offense had an opportunity to tie the game at 24 with about nine minutes left in the fourth quarter, but senior wide receiver Jenson Stoshak had an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty called on him after originally scoring a touchdown from a pass from Jaquez Johnson. “I was caught up in the moment and it was a selfish play on my part that cost us the game,” said Stoshak.

November 7, 2015

After a 31-17 Shula Bowl win over Florida International that included 397 offensive yards and a seven sack performance by the defense, It seemed Florida Atlantic football had momentum in their favor coming into their matchup versus Western Kentucky. That momentum didn’t carry, as Florida Atlantic fell to the Hilltoppers 35-19 Saturday afternoon. The Owls (2-7, 2-4 C-USA) were unable to contain WKU quarterback Brandon Doughty, who was involved with every single offensive score during the game. He threw for 273 yards, totaled four passing touchdowns and recorded a receiving touchdown.

In the landscape of Division I college sports, it’s a rare occurrence to find a set of siblings playing for the same team in the same sport at the same time. However, this year’s Florida Atlantic football team will field a set of brothers – Jenson and Jake Stoshak – who play on opposite sides of the ball.
