Florida Atlantic Owls vs. Miami Hurricanes Recap

Yet another gridiron contest was delayed last night in South Florida by lightening. Nearly every high school football game in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale area experienced a delay the night before, and the Miami Hurricanes trip to Boca Raton to face the Florida Atlantic University Owls was no exception.

A stadium record crowd of over 30,000 stuffed the FAU stands, as the upstart Conference USA program tried to put a huge feather in their cap by upsetting the big boys from South Beach. Miami traveled north on I-95 with their own objective and that was to continue to try and reassert what was once one of the most feared college football programs in the land.

Early on it seemed the Hurricanes were affected the most by the delay, as for the better part of the first half into the 3rd quarter, FAU moved the ball and just looked like the better team. Early in the 2nd half, the game was actually tied at 20 points apiece. All this with the Owls using their second string quarter back Jason Driskel who was called on to replace Jaquez Johnson straight out of the locker room following the lightening delay.

FAU looked confident and seemed primed for an upset, but after tying the game at 20, Miami seemed to catch their own lightening in a bottle. It came in the form of Joesph Yearby, who began to lumber through the Owl’s defense, churning up yardage and eating away at the clock. Through all of Yearby’s efforts, it was is complementary sidekick Mark Walton who really put the game out of reach.

Walton almost split carries down the middle with Yearby, 14 to 18, but gained over 100 yards less all total. But, it was Walton’s sense around the goal line that proved the most impressive. 3 touchdowns, two of those in the final half, helped seal the deal for the Hurricanes.

Florida Atlantic did themselves well with a good showing against "The U", and certainly benefitted in future recruiting wars with their new I-95 Atlantic Beach rivals. While it took the Canes a little while to kickstart their squad on this Friday evening, Miami once again proved to the South Florida football faithful that they are still the most prominent team.

The rushing game was lead by Kenyan Drake who had 6 carries and a touchdown. The receiving attack was lead by Amari Cooper who had 13 receptions and 1 touchdown.
