Sucks that TO won't play. He's a great asset. Hope we can overcome this injury and still win the day.

Final Analysis
FIU has undergone a remarkable turnaround in its first season under Butch Davis. And when this game was scheduled back in September, the Panthers probably felt confident that they would be able to cruise to an easy victory over the Minutemen and get a little payback in the process. However, UMass has enjoyed a pretty remarkable turnaround of its own since the mid-point of the season and FIU probably couldn’t have picked a worse time to face the Minutemen. It should be a hard-fought matchup, but UMass will ride the wave of momentum provided by its red-hot passing attack and pull off the upset in Miami.

Prediction: UMass 31, FIU 27

“Yeah, we beat them in the last two years, but this is a totally different football team even though it’s the same group of guys,” UMass linebacker Steve Casali said. “They got a new coach, and they got a lot more wins than the last two years. Their offense is very physical, very fast, so I think it will be a good football game.”
UMass has played bigger, more talented opponents, yet Casali considers FIU one of the Minutemen’s biggest games.
“This game is huge, I think it is one of the biggest of the year because it sets the younger guys off for their offseason,” Casali said. “Even though it’s my last game, it’s very important to win this game for the younger guys and for the foundation of the program.”

I don't think I've seen this shared on here yet:



FIU is giving FREE BOWL GAME TICKETS to ALL students that show up to the UMass game. What a deal! Help spread the word. Let's pack the Cage!

Will it be televised? Has CUSA tv gotten any better?

CUSA-TV has added it. I saw a link on the U Mass site to "watch," but I don't know what that is, really.

Will the game be on TV? Or only online? Paid subscription?

Paid on CUSA TV. That's how I'm watching.

They really need to improve the video quality. It's not very good. I expect better for paying $6.95 a game, honestly.

Also... someone really needs to tell AJ Ricketts FIU is NOT in Sweetwater. Seriously. That's a pretty ridiculous mistake to make on the final game of the season.

No, it's not. Sweetwater line ends on the other side of 8th Street from the campus.

Good thing. No P-5 team would ever come to Sweetwater.
