But to clinch the conference, the Owls will need to first go through the FIU Golden Panthers, a team famous for two reasons: last years ugly, on-field brawl during a game against UM, and its losing streak of 22 games stretching back to December of ΄05. The horrid streak is the longest in all of college football, and it earned the Panthers the number one spot on ESPNs Bottom 10 after an embarrassing last-minute loss to Arkansas State. Still, these guys always play FAU tight (theyre scrappers, after all), so a win for the Owls isnt guaranteed. Plus, this is FIUs second-to-last home game, meaning its the second-to-last ball game to be played at the historic Orange Bowl (1501 NW Third St., Miami). Tickets will run you $20.
