Coached by Howard Schnellenberger, the Owls are off to a horrid start through two weeks after playing at Florida and Michigan State to open the season. Losing both games FAU has been outscored 85-3 and has managed just 185 yards of total offense combined for the two games while giving up 902 yards.
In his 51st year of coaching, Schnellenberger is in his 25th year as a collegiate head coach with a record of 157-142-3. Much of his success came at Miami where he was 41-16 from 1979-1984.
It will be the first-ever meeting between the two schools.
