FAU Steamrolls FIU in the Second Half To Win Shula Bowl XVIII

Saturday’s 37-7 loss to Florida Atlantic was very much a perfect encapsulation of the Panthers’ entire 2019 season. Fleeting glimmers of promise for FIU, only to be snuffed out by their miscues and unforced errors.

“Here’s the summary for the 2019 season. The self-inflicted wounds are every week. We snap the ball to give one of the best kickers I’ve ever had a chance to cut the lead to three and the holder throws an interception. The punter can’t hang on to the snap because it’s over his head, those kinds of things are impossible to overcome against a good football team,” said Butch Davis.
