    Week 1: FAU @ Nebraska

    No one expected the FAU Owls to have much of a chance against the Cornhuskers in Nebraska. But after the opening kickoff, Nebraska knew they would have to do more than just show up. The Owls marched the opening drive down the field capping it off with an 8 yrd TD run by Junior RB David Muniz.

    That would be the story of the game. As this turned into a duel of the Junior RBs. David Muniz and Roy Helu. As neither team could stop the others running game. The teams exchanged scores leading to a 27-24 FAU Halftime lead.

    But Nebraska would come out of the tunnel with a renewed focus scoring to 2 quick TDs. But the Owls wouldn't give up as they started the 4th qtr with two long time consuming drives. Both ending with TDs. Helping to Prevail against the #21 Nebraska Cornhuskers.


    FAU Player of the Game David Muniz 36 carries 311 Yds 4 TDs

    NU Player of the Game Roy Helu 23 carries 291 Yds 3 TDs
