You confuse me, FAU.
I thought the Owls were going to be legitimately decent this year, but against Nebraska and Alabama to start the season, they looked like they were 2012 FAU against 1995 Nebraska and 2011 Alabama. I didn't expect them to win either game, but I didn't expect them to lose by a combined 96-7 either.
Since then, the Owls have also lost a tight one at Wyoming, but they've whipped Tulsa at home, and on Saturday, they beat what I thought might be the best team in the CUSA West. So ... pretty good now? Just good at home? Mirage? I have no idea. But hey, nice win despite a massive field position disadvantage and an efficiency loss.
