Former Alabama WR Antonio Carter's lawsuit against current FAU coach Lane Kiffin was dismissed on Wednesday.

The lawsuit was in regards to claims by Carter that Kiffin deliberately misled him regarding a job on the FAU football staff in order to benefit from his family relationship with a prospective recruit. Because the case was dismissed by Circuit Judge Laura Alvis with prejudice, it cannot be refiled.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Shandel Richardson reports that FAU redshirt senior WR Kalib Woods will make his season-debut in Saturday's game against North Texas.

Woods has been out on indefinite suspension for his role in an off-campus brawl in June, one which led to a pair of felony battery charges. The 6-foot-3, 193-pound redshirt senior notched a 68-934-1 receiving line last season and should provide a big boost to the Owls' passing game once he's shaken off the rust. FAU will be gunning for its first three-game winning streak since 2013 when they do battle with North Texas on Saturday.
Oct 19 - 3:36 PM

FAU sophomore RB Devin Singletary rushed for 194 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries in Saturday's 58-28 win over Old Dominion.

Fantastic work by Singletary and the entirety of the Owls' stable of rushers on Saturday. They racked up 453 yards rushing and eight touchdowns as a team, with Singletary, Gregory Howell and QB Jason Driskel each putting in at least 90 yards and a touchdown in the victory. For his part, the 5-foot-9, 201-pound Singletary has now surpassed 100 yards rushing in four consecutive games. He's up to 686 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns over the course of six contests played.
Oct 7 - 9:53 PM

FAU junior QB Jason Driskel completed 13-of-22 passes for 97 yards and an interception while rushing for 92 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 58-28 win over Old Dominion.

Nothing doing through the air for Driskel, but he excelled as a rushing threat in rolling up touchdowns on the ground in every quarter. The longest of those came on a 39-yard run midway through the second stanza. This scoring explosion came after Driskel had failed to rush for either a touchdown or more than 30 yards in any of his three previous games.
Oct 7 - 9:47 PM

FAU sophomore RB Devin Singletary rushed for 133 yards and four touchdowns on 24 carries in Saturday's 38-20 win over Middle Tennessee.

Singletary danced in for three of his four touchdowns in the first half before capping off his performance with a two-yard score to open the fourth quarter. He has been an out-and-out monster over his last three games, having rushed for 398 yards and eight touchdowns in that space. For the campaign as a whole, he has turned in 492 yards on the ground, plus nine touchdowns. A showdown with Ole Dominion next weekend will offer him his next opportunity for offensive glory.
Sep 30 - 11:15 PM

FAU junior QB Jason Driskel is expected to start Saturday against Middle Tennessee.

It would be his second consecutive start. Last week against Buffalo, while drawing the start over Daniel Parr, Driskel went 17-for-29 for 150 yards and an interception. The Owls offense hasn't come along as quickly as some thought it would under HC Lane Kiffin and OC Kendall Briles.
Sep 30 - 6:00 PM

FAU sophomore RB Devin Singletary rushed for 156 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 34-31 loss to Buffalo.

Singletary ripped off a 34-yard scoring run early in the second quarter and later came through with a pair of short touchdowns in the fourth quarter. His final score drew the Owls to within the 34-31 with just over a minute remaining in the game, but they were unable to come through with a miracle finish. After being held under 70 yards rushing in the first two games of the season, Singletary has gone over 100 yards in each of the last two contests. He will try to make it three-in-a-row when FAU tangos with Middle Tennessee next weekend.
Sep 23 - 10:38 PM

FAU senior WR John Franklin III says he never wanted to play QB despite playing the position at FSU and Auburn.

"I never wanted to play quarterback to be honest, but nobody got me the ball!" Franklin said. "That was a problem, and I got to the point to where if I got the ball every play, why not?" The FAU staff feels like Franklin's transition to receiver has been smooth. However, his involvement hasn't been huge as Franklin has just four catches for 19 yards.
Sep 20 - 7:50 AM

FAU senior RB Gregory Howell rushed for 175 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries in Saturday's 45-0 win over Bethune-Cookman.

Does 13.46 YPC work for you? It worked for Howell on Saturday. While he put in a number of big runs in the game, the 6-foot-1, 215-pounder's touchdown was far more modest, just a baby one-yard score midway through the third quarter. Howell entered action on Saturday having rushed for just 31 yards on four carries in two contests. Big-yardage efforts like this shouldn't be expected on a weekly basis -- Devin Singletary, who rushed for 109 yards on Saturday, is the team's bellcow back -- but Howell has shown the ability to rip off chunks on the ground when called upon and offers the Owls a nice secondary option when Singletary is slow to spark.
Sep 16 - 10:01 PM

FAU is hopeful that their scheduled showdown with Bethune-Cookman can be played as scheduled on Saturday.

The Owls were stranded in Madison following their loss to the Badgers due to the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, but they are flying back to Boca Raton on Wednesday evening. Wisconsin extended lodging, food and practice facilities to their unexpected guests while the FAU team waited out the storm. Aiding the cause for this weekend's game against Bethune-Cookman, the hurricane did not cause significant structural damage to FAU Stadium. Saturday's contest is scheduled to kick at 6:30 EST barring a last-minute change.
Sep 13 - 9:21 PM

The father of FAU redshirt sophomore QB De'Andre Johnson took to Facebook to write that his son underwent surgery for two blood clots in his arm.

This would be Johnson's "scary medical condition" which Owls HC Lane Kiffin referred to on Monday. Per his father, the 6-foot, 177-pounder underwent surgery last week. There is no current timetable for the redshirt sophomore's return to action. It is possible that he could end up missing the rest of the season.
Sep 13 - 6:17 PM

FAU redshirt sophomore QB De'Andre Johnson was hospitalized with "scary medical condition."

Head coach Lane Kiffin would not elaborate any further. Johnson is obviously out indefinitely, and local media is not certain if it is related to the issue that kept Johnson out of practice for most of the last month. Kiffin said it is too early to know if Johnson returns tot he field this season.
Sep 12 - 11:14 AM

FAU will stay in Madison until the threat Hurricane Irma poses to travel has passed.

The Owls were able to travel to Wisconsin for their showdown with the Badgers, but for the foreseeable future, they will not be leaving Madison. This was a possibility that both FAU and Wisconsin had planned for during the practice week -- the Badgers will accommodate HC Lane Kiffin and crew with lodging, food and use of practice facilities until it is safe for the Owls to travel.

FAU junior WR DeAndre McNeal caught three passes for 103 yards and a touchdown in the school's 31-14 loss to Wisconsin on Saturday.

McNeal was the only Owl to post a positive performance on offense. McNeal was able to get behind the secondary on his 63-yard touchdown and keep his balance along the sideline. Lane Kiffin's Owls are now 0-2.
Sep 9 - 3:21 PM

FAU redshirt sophomore QB De'Andre Johnson (undisclosed) didn't travel with the team to its game on Saturday versus Wisconsin.

FAU Owl Access expects Daniel Parr to draw another start. Off the bench, Johnson went 2-for-3 for five yards and an interception in the opener against Navy.
