Tulane drives down the field pounding the football, getting at least 5 yards at a time... Niko missed a really easy tackle and Tulane scores a TD. FIU leads 13-10. FIU really needs a TD. Wasting yardage on offense...

I don't think there has been an FIU punt/kick return where there wasn't a flag... Nice return by Singleton wasted... FIU goes three and out on top of that. Dangerous times ahead...

FIU forces a Tulane 3-and-out. Tulane has not been able to throw the football at all. Great defensive game plan.

FIU has four legitimate running backs, even with Jones out. Gardner, Phillips, Maxwell, and Price are all great runners, each with a different style. FIU is driving to end the third quarter up 13-10. Let's hope we can keep pounding it for a TD. A 2-score lead would be great.

Price and Singleton are the bright spots for me so far. Love to see the young guys making an impact.

Competitive 4th is all you can ask for

Oliver and Curtis are getting a lot of playing time on the D-line also. But yes, those two are playmakers. And Alex just set Price to get LIT UP. He owes Price a beer after that... (well when D'Vonte turns 21 lol).

FIU gets a nice break. The Tulane kickoff return guy bobbled the catch then took a knee picking it up at the one yard line! FIU forces the three and out and now gets the ball back with great field position. I would love to see FIU pound in another TD here.

FIU goes for it on 4th and 1 on Tulane's 32... Phillips gets stuffed on the handoff... Very predictable.

After a Tulane turnover, FIU gets another FG and now leads 23-10 with about 5-6 minutes left. Go Panthers!

What a great result by FIU! Last week I was deeply dejected, but this win really puts the faith back

Big win. Well done, boys. Especially on D. That was a killer performance considering how the D's been carved up on the ground this year. Though, I do have to say, I don't think Banks is that great a thrower. I know Fritz's O doesn't usually need it, but they needed it today.

No big shakes on offense for FIU, but I loved the game plan. Going vertical really put Tulane on their heels. And man, was McGough throwing some pretty ones today. He got lucky on a few that should've been picked, though.

I also liked the RB rotation. Usually, I'm not a fan of that stuff, but we got a nice group of runners and it's clear that Gardner needs the rest. He was making some runs late like I hadn't seen him do in a while. Especially finishing plays off. He can't do that without a breather or two.

2 wins away from bowl eligibility... I have a hard time seeing how we don't get there at this point. This coaching staff is clearly winning games we weren't under Turner. Or MC, for that matter.
