Coming into this game there was an air of disappointment. Sure, everyone was saying the right things after the loss to Troy but that didn’t lift the fog. Florida Atlantic seemed like the perfect rebound game from a tough loss. What do ya know? They are.
Derek Thompson still looks a little shaky, like his confidence hasn’t returned after taking a beating. He isn’t playing terribly but he isn’t sparkling either. In fact that pretty much sums up the offense. Outside of a beautiful 68-yard touchdown pass to Brelan Chancellor in the first quarter, the offense has looked like the one we saw last week in Denton.
The good news is that FAU has nowhere near the offense that came back against us then. They are moving the ball fairly wel but Graham Wilbert only has 73 yards passing, has thrown two picks and lost a fumble.
Trice and Akunne have the picks, while the defensive line is getting tons of pressure.
Watch on espn3 ya’ll.
