BOCA RATON, Fla. - A cold front is blowing through south Florida, but the Tom Oxley Practice Fields were not nearly as cold as the expected 49 degree game time temperature for the Florida Atlantic University football team’s game versus WKU in Bowling Green, Ky., this Saturday.
Wednesday Comments from Head Coach Lane Kiffin
"Not much to report on. The guys have a lot of confidence and played with a lot of energy and so we just talked about this (WKU game) being a big test. A team that has dominated us, obviously last year and has done a great job in the conference and so whenever you are new, new staff, new team you have to earn respect. We have to go up and do that…We are going to play them every year so we need to prepare really well and play really well to gain people’s respect.“
