Dec. 1, 2009
BOCA RATON, FL - Florida Atlantic University's football team began its final week of preparation and for 16 seniors. The countdown is on for the seniors' final week of practice and their final game wearing an FAU uniform.
The game, titled the `Shula Bowl', will feature the visiting Florida Atlantic at FIU and it will air on Comcast Cable's CSS beginning at 7 p.m. FAU holds the all-time series record at 6-1, but few have forgotten the 57-50 overtime game a year ago.
For the Owls Tuesday was a big day at practice. Defensively, Erick McIntosh started the day with an interception. Moments later, freshman David Hinds got into the action with an interception and Tony Rodriguez soon followed.
Offensively, the day's work ended with back-to-back touchdown scores by Jamari Grant and Chris Bonner. Practice ended much like it began with special teams. The day began with punt drills and ended with field goal drills.
FAU will return to the practice field at 3 p.m. Wednesday at the FAU Tom Oxley Center practice fields. All practices are free and open to the public.
