    Recruiting Information
    Needs: FB (2), SS, FS, MLB​
    FIU would like to establish a solid defense and playmakers on offense. With the young talent already in place, the FIU recruiting staff looks to focus on 3 major points of interest.​
    1. Fill needs​
    2. Add depth to offensive line​
    3. Find offensive and defensive play makers​

    Week 5: :3stars: CB (#66) Zach Daniels - Huge commit for FIU to get recruiting going. A caliber prospect FIU isn't accustomed to bringing in likes what he sees out of the program.​
    Injury Report

    New Brunswick, NJ - The Florida International Golden Panthers traveled north to face the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. They showed up to give RU all they had. What they nearly walked away with was a huge win for the FIU program. Rutgers took an early 10-0 lead after the first quarter, but in the 2nd, the Golden Panthers emerged. Sophomore FS Jon Cyprien would pick up a loose football and take it 51 yards for the scoop-and-score TD, bringing FIU within 3. They would go to the half with the same score, 10-7 in favor of the Scarlet Knights. In the 3rd, RU would tack on 3 late, but on the ensuing kickoff, WR Times would give FIU the lead with a 101 yard TD return, silencing the RU crowd. The 4th quarter arrived with FIU in front, but Rutgers would again march the field and take a slim lead with a 36 yard field goal. FIU would get the ball back with plenty of time to make it to RU territory and steal a victory. With under 2 minutes left, FIU found themslves within the RU 10 yard line and the clock was ticking. They planned on running the ball to set up the field goal, what they got instead was a monumental touchdown by HB Darrian Mallary from 9 yards out. Following the 2-point conversion, FIU had a 22-16 lead on the Scarlet Knights. Unfortunately, they left just enough time on the clock for RU to put on a drive. With 2 seconds left on the clock, RU QB Tom Savage found WR Deerina in the endzone on a curl route from 1 yard out. After the PAT, Rutgers had the one point lead, which would be enough as FIU could not obtain any magic on the kickoff. Rutgers escaped with the victory, and sent FIU back to Miami with heartache.​
    "These kids really showed what they can do in the face of adversity today. We didn't get the win, but I feel like we proved to the nation that FIU can and will compete with the upper echelon of college football. We've got a week off before traveling to Texas A&M and we expect to put everything we have on their field like we did here today." - Coach Cimmy24 after the game.​

    The Golden Panthers, coming off a bye week after a near upset of Rutgers, wanted to prove that game wasn't a fluke. They did that and more. Another dramatic, last possession go ahead score was the difference. This time, it was in FIU's favor. After giving up a FG to go down 17-20 with 50 seconds left, FIU was left with 2 timeouts, and needed a TD to win. With 10 seconds left, QB Carroll saw a small window to WR Younger from 28 yards out, and threw the perfect ball. Younger trotted into the endzone, giving FIU a 23-20 lead with only seconds left. After the PAT, a field goal would do nothing for TAMU and the FIU defense swatted away a last second hail mary, securing a monumental upset.​
    "I'm more than proud of this team. I knew after the near victory last week that this team was good enough to compete on the higher level. Texas A&M is a very good program with a roster full of talented players. To get a victory over them is absolutely inspiring and I think this team is destined for a great season. Next challenge is against Maryland next week, again on the road. It's a bigger challenge given we don't have a bye week to prepare, so we will really see what this team is about."​

    The Florida International Golden Panthers have proven, they are for real. FIU walked into College Park with many questions on their abilities hanging over their heads. They left College Park with every question answered just the way they wanted. They are the real deal. FIU whipped up on the Maryland Terrapins 35-12 in what was dubbed a no contest. Maryland held a 6-0 lead after the first quarter, but the 2nd was all FIU as the Panthers scored 21 points. All 3 came off of passes from QB Wesley Carroll who had the best game of his life. The Terps defense could not figure out a way to stop the FIU offensive attack.The FIU defense played lights out as well, with DE Tourek Williams leading the way with 2 sacks and a forced fumble that he picked up and returned 53 yards for the TD. Florida International is now not only an obvious favorite to win the Sun Belt, but some believe they could find themselves ranked in the coming weeks if they continue to show their worth, especially against the Pitt Panthers next week.​
    "Well, what more can I say? We did the job and then some today against a very good Maryland team. I watched the Terps here and there growing up as I have always enjoyed the state of Maryland, yeah I know, wrong reasons for having some interest in a program, but I was young. The Terps are a team that can get it done and a program that has had success. What happened here today was just us proving we belong in the talks. Week 1 is behind us now and in the shadows. Two big wins, two big reasons FIU should be everyones darkhorse."​
