This Week's Game Notes
Florida Atlantic University completed day three of prep for this Saturday's game versus the University of North Texas, scheduled for 5 p.m. in FAU Stadium.
Head Coach Lane Kiffin Post-Practice Comments
"Guys practiced well, hopefully we're fixing what I believe are our two major issues, which is tackling on the back end on defense and the passing game on offense. Hopefully we're improving those, because as I told them today, if you're going to be a championship team, championship teams eventually get exposed by good teams if you don't fix your issues."
