Florida Atlantic Owls Game Notes

FAU HC Willie Taggart has yet to name his starting quarterback for Friday's game at FIU. Redshirt junior Nick Tronti (6'4/215) started the Owls' 10-6 win over Western Kentucky but he wasn't particularly impressive, as he completed 7-of-16 passes for 108 yards while being sacked four times. The redshirt junior's struggles may have opened the door for redshirt freshman Javion Posey, whose lone pass attempt in the win over WKU was intercepted. But Posey was solid running the football, as he ripped off a team-high 60 yards and a touchdown on nine carries.

Florida International Panthers Game Notes

FIU freshman QB Stone Norton is listed as the starter for Friday's game against Florida Atlantic. Norton (6'3/200) will get another shot at the starting gig after a decidedly underwhelming performance in a 19-10 loss to FCS opponent Jacksonville State. He completed just five-of-14 passes for 66 yards and a touchdown while ceding a couple of series to backup Max Bortenschlager, who only completed two-of-five passes for 18 yards during his abbreviated stint. It's worth noting that FIU has been hit as hard as any program in the country by postponements, as they have had four games moved thus far. Florida International will try to secure their first win of the season this Friday against in-state rival Florida Atlantic.
