28-3. Glad to see them win this one. They came prepared to play unlike us earlier this season.

There is already a thread in the AAC Forum on this.

Glad the AAC put one on CUSA especially after the La Tech beat down of SMU. As for the game, FIU lost its Senior starting QB on the first drive with a broken collarbone. The backup FIU QB was sacked twice and threw two picks in his first 4 passing plays. FIU basically became one dimensional and limited to running the ball after first series in the game. Despite that, Temple was up only 7-0 at half and 7-3 in the 3Q before Temple opened it up in the 4th. It wasn't the whipping that the score indicated. It could've gone either way until the 4th, which was a tribute to the FIU defense given the futility of the backup FIU QB.

Yep, if FIU had its senior quarterback for the entire game I'm not so sure Temple would have won.

I agree. Temple lucked out . They did not look particularly adept at the game so to speak!
