WK 1 FIU-31 (1-0) UNT-6 The hiring of Coach Solomon as the Golden Panthers new Defensive Coordinator looks like a good decision after the first game. The new defensive scheme put in place allowed only 29 rushing yards and 197 passing yards while getting to the QB 5 times. The ground and pound offense was very effective with 190 yard on the ground and 163 through the air. The one negative FIU will be taking from this game is the loss of their SR RB who put up 135 rushing yards and 2 scores before getting injured. He is expected to miss up to 6 wks.
