The Florida Atlantic Owls will finally play their third game of the season, while the UTSA Roadrunners head into their eighth contest when the two teams matchup on Saturday.
FAU has had issues with postponed games this season, and has only played in two games in 2020, new head coach Willie Taggart’s first in Boca Raton. The Owls started their season at the beginning of the month in a 21-17 home win over Charlotte, but they suffered their first loss last week 20-9 against a ranked Marshall team. Junior Nick Tronti completed 18 of 30 passes for 148 yards and an interception against the Thundering Herd, while junior running back Malcolm Davidson scored the lone touchdown and finished with 62 yards on eight carries.
UTSA snapped a three-game losing streak when it came back from down two touchdowns against Louisiana Tech on Saturday. The Roadrunners trailed 26-13 midway through the third quarter and scored twice in the fourth quarter, both by running back Sincere McCormick. He finished with three touchdowns and carried the ball 37 times for 165 yards. Frank Harris threw two interceptions and finished with 189 yards passing.
Florida Atlantic has won the only two games in this series, including a 40-26 road win in 2019.
