The FAU football team celebrates with the winning trophy on Saturday afternoon after they beat North Texas for the C-USA Championship 41-17. Saturday afternoon in Boca Raton, they had 27 points and 382 yards... in the first half alone.

With three rushing touchdowns on the day, including one late in the fourth quarter that officially snuffed out UNT's come-from-behind hopes, Devin Singletary now has 29 rushing touchdowns on the season.

With Singletary handling things on the ground, quarterback Jason Driskel and receiver led the passing game. The Mean Green defense stiffened in the second half, however, as the Owls finished the game with 486 yards of offense.

"I don't think I've ever been part of a game that had nine sacks", Al-Shaair said.

Philadelphia Eagles extend Alshon Jeffery to four-year extension
Jeffery has helped the Eagles to a season-leading 10-1 record heading into a week 13 date with the Seattle Seahawks. In 11 games this season, Jeffery ranks second on the team in receptions (43) and receiving yards (619).

FAU freshman linebacker Akileis Leroy (36) slide tackles North Texas freshman running back Evan Johnson (26) after he attempts to go for a first down.

The lead was extended to 34-0 when Woods caught a 54-yard pass from Driskel.

If FAU wins the conference title, Kiffin may start getting more interest from big-name programs with head coaching vacancies. A replay review determined that Franklin dropped the ball in celebration before crossing the goal line, and that North Texas made a clear recovery, negating the touchdown and giving the ball to the Mean Green. "You are going to win a lot of games if you do that".

"I would love to play Bama".
