Week nine of college football continues as Florida Atlantic travels to S.B. Ballard Stadium to take on Old Dominion on Saturday, Oct. 26 at 3:30 P.M. This will be the sixth meeting between these two teams with Florida Atlantic winning three of the first five. The Owls also managed to win the lone meeting last season by the score of 52-33.

Florida Atlantic Looks To Stay Above .500

The Florida Atlantic Owls have been pretty solid so far this season. After starting with consecutive losses against ranked teams, Florida Atlantic has won four of its last five games which gives it a 4-3 overall record. In addition, the Owls are currently 2-1 in conference play after losing a heartbreaker to Marshall at home last week by five points. Now, Florida Atlantic will look to get back on track in this road game as it will look to maintain its winning record. However, Florida Atlantic has actually been great on the road this season as it has covered all three point spreads away from home this season. Leading the Owls offensively is sophomore quarterback Chris Robison who has looked amazing so far this season. Specifically, he has thrown for 1,923 passing yards and 13 passing touchdowns. In addition, Robison also has two rushing touchdowns and he has only thrown three interceptions so he has done a solid job at limiting turnovers. With a below average defense up next, Robison should put together another great performance. https://twitter.com/FAU_Football/status/1185329089147822080 Florida Atlantic's biggest threat on defense is senior linebacker Rashad Smith who has been great through the first seven games of the season. Specifically, he has two interceptions and 1.5 sacks. In addition, he also has 23 solo tackles along with one forced fumble and three fumble recoveries. Last week, Smith had seven tackles but did not force any turnovers so he will look to make a bigger impact in this game.
