MIAMI, FL - Florida Atlantic University's first football game as well as 126 plays are now officially in the book. The defense shined for the second weekend coming away with a 39-32 victory in the modified scoring system, prior to the goal line work. The offense won the goal line workout 17-4.
The defense was highlighted by several key performances including Yulkeith Brown who grabbed one interception and forced a fumble.
Offensively, Garrett Jahn was 17-for-30 with 214 yards, including two touchdowns. Jared Allen, who split time with Jahn calling the signals, was 6-17 for 98 yards and was charged with interceptions.
"The offense was better, but we are still making decisions that would be suicide in a game," said Howard Schnellenberger. "Dekolan had a good game as did Parker. We also have several walk-ons that will contribute to our running game."
FAU will play its final scrimmage of the spring, 4 pm, Saturday, April 21 at the Tom
Oxley Fields. It will be family day.
