Players to Watch
Joe Licata (Buffalo, QB)- Licata has been stellar this season, completing over 72 percent of his passes on the season. Even though FAU struggled versus Miami (FL), Licata is going to be great once again in order to win.
Anthone Taylor (Buffalo, RB)- Taylor has ran for a bit under 200 yards on the season so far. Last week Taylor ran for 93 yards at Penn State.
Jason Driskel (FAU, QB)- Driskel has struggled all season so far for the Owls. He'll need to have an awesome night if Florida Atlantic is to win this one.
FAU's defense- The Owls defense has struggled throughout the first two weeks of the 2015 season. They'll need to be successful on the day if FAU's offense has any chance of keeping up.
