FAU football is ready for a winning streak. Any team at this point in the season could “find answers” and sharpen their team to win more. FAU beat Rice last week which tested their adversity. N’Kosi Perry threw for 125 yards but passed for the game winning touchdown. Look at West Virginia’s road at mid-season to a bowl game by Weston Sensabaugh. Rice had been scoring 28 points per game and the defense had three interceptions in the game. N’Kosi Perry was looking to be a stronger leader. Taggart had something to prove as a coach. The next four games setup for a hell of an adventure to end the Owls season.
How can FAU football win four straight?
From an article in the Palm Beach Post, FAU has faced a lot of adversity this season. They showed grit in getting an interception to beat Rice. The defense played well getting three interceptions. Coach Willie Taggart said after the offense started slow, “It was more than just controlling our emotions and then staying calm. Throughout the year, we try so hard to win that sometimes they (offense) make some bad mistakes.” A great Cuban baseball player said, “Be careful of the guy that’s 0-3, cause he’s due.” All of Conference USA knows that FAU doesn’t play well on the road. The game against UTEP will be a pit fight, but FAU will walk out a winner.
UAB at home propels the streak
After conquering the problems of winning on the road, FAU comes home to play UAB. UAB has a very good rushing offense, averaging 244 yards a game. UAB also has one of the best defenses in Conference USA, but SO DID RICE! The game will showcase the two top running backs in Conference USA, Larry McCammon for the Owls and DeWayne McBride for the Blazers. The Owl defense will want to show that McCammon is the better back and shut down McBride. The Blazers will be playing their second game on the road against FAU. They play Western Kentucky this Saturday and the Hilltoppers have a high scoring offense. Chances are they will be tired in that second game as they host Conference leader UTSA at home the week after.
After beating UAB, the Owls go on two straight road games. They play the Panthers in Sweetwater and have won five straight in the series. Finally, a revenge game against Middle Tennessee. The Blue Raiders were the bitter fourth loss in last season’s disappointing losing streak.
Western Kentucky at home finishes the streak
The final game in the 2022 season for FAU is in Boca Raton. Western Kentucky will have two weeks to prepare for this game as they have a Bye after playing Rice on November 12. FAU has faced adversity all season and their defense will be tested in this game. Western Kentucky’s offense averages over 40 points per game. Their defense allows 22.7 points per game. Quarterback Austin Reed has thrown 21 TD’s against 5 INT’s. The defense allows 120 rush yards a game, but 242 passing yards. The secondary and Dwight Toombs will have the chance to make a statement. Toombs has three interceptions on the season and linebacker Eddie Williams 65 tackles are up to the task. The adversity that they have been tested with all season will be satisfied when they avenge a terrible 52-17 defeat against the Hilltoppers last season.
