Florida Atlantic vs. Auburn: TV Schedule, Live Streaming, Radio and Game Time

Richard Langford@@noontide34Correspondent ISeptember 22, 2011

For the first time in 16 games, Auburn will try to rebound from a loss. Auburn fell 35-24 last week to Clemson. The loss put them at 2-1 on the season and knocked them out of the top 25. 

They will now try to bounce back against an overmatched Florida Atlantic team. The Owls started off their season with a grueling schedule. They opened with Florida and Michigan State.

They have been outscored 85-3 in those games.

They are likely facing more of the same in this one.

BCS/Top 25 Poll Implications

Auburn was knocked out of the top 25 last week. If they have any hope of returning any time soon, they have to win this game easy.

A win here likely won't push them back into the top 25, but it would leave them within striking distance for the following week.


Key Storyline

How will Auburn bounce back from a loss?

Auburn suffered their first loss in 17 games. It will be interesting to see how this group of players reacts to that adversity.

Will they come back, put in a hard week of work and blow away a weaker opponent or will they flounder and sulk in their lost air of invincibility?


What They're Saying

Florida Atlantic is 0-2 on the year. That is not the surprising part. How bad they have looked in those two games has caught everyone off guard.

Here is the Kansas City Star on their massive ineptness:

"The Owls have had two weeks to prepare for this affair, and the offense obviously needs to be far better than it was against Michigan State just to make this weekend's tilt respectable.

"The fact that FAU managed only 48 total yards of offense against the Spartans is downright embarrassing, as the offense averaged 1.5 yards per snap. With 22 rushing yards on 20 attempts and 26 passing yards on six completions, it is hard to imagine a worse performance. Graham Wilbert and David Kooi both saw time under center and combined, they failed to convert on 10 third-down opportunities.

"With a grand total of three points through two games, FAU is on track for a historically poor offensive season, but it is important to remember that the competition in the Sun Belt Conference will be far-less daunting than what the club has faced to date.

"Still, there is some reason for concern when you consider a 2-of-23 success ratio on third-down conversion attempts. Wilbert, the team's starting quarterback, is gaining roughly seven yards per completion, and standout tailback Alfred Morris is posting just 1.5 yards per rush."


Florida Atlantic Player To Watch

QB Graham Wilbert

If the Owls are going to do anything on offense, then Wilbert is likely going to have to do it through the air. He has not had much success with this. Wilbert is 18-of-36 with just 122 yards. He has not thrown a touchdown, but on the plus side, he hasn't thrown an interception.


Auburn Player To Watch

RB Michael Dyer

Dyer has been fantastic this season. He has 358 yards on 48 carries. That is good for an eye-popping 7.5 yards per carry average.


Key Matchup

Auburn vs. Themselves

Auburn has the talent to win every match on this field. Their only obstacle to dominance is going to be themselves.

Can this team focus and play their best effort against a weak team that is scheduled between two SEC games?
