Saturday college football action features the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats traveling to the Florida Atlantic Owls.

The Bethune-Cookman Wildcats bounced back from a loss to Tennessee State in their opener to pound Lynchburg 79-16 in week two. Bethune-Cookman rolled to a 58-9 lead after two quarters and were never challenged.

Wildcats quarterback Akevious Willams connected on 12-13 for 297 yards with four touchdowns while David Israel hit 6-11 for 150 yards and two scores along with a pick. Malique Jackson was Bethune-Cookman’s top receiver with 162 yards and a pair of scores on four catches while LaDerrian Wilson ran for 25 yards on two totes.

The Florida Atlantic Owls squeezed past Air Force 33-27 as an eight point favorite at home to even their record at 1-1. Florida Atlantic dominated total yards 525-373 but did have a punt blocked for a TD.

The Owls did very little on the ground with Devin Singletary logging 57 yards on 16 carries with a score. FAU quarterback Chris Robison made up for the lack of a running game as he connected on 33-40 for 471 yards and three touchdowns with Jovon Durante posting 12 receptions for 74 yards and a TD followed by Tavaris Harrison with 138 yards on seven catches.

Under is 4-0 in Bethune-Cookman last 4 games on grass and Bethune-Cookman are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 road games and Bethune-Cookman are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 non-conference games. Over is 6-1 in FAU last 7 games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous game and FAU are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game and under is 5-1 in FAU last 6 games after allowing more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game. 

Florida Atlantic has got to get going with the conference schedule right around the corner and they decide the score here...

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
