Miami, FL— My favored subject: downturn busters. My favored. Everybody needs them. They aren’t always sexy, but they certainly help your mojo. All the same, the remained in alarming requirement of some bustin’. Last week, James Morgan threw a career-best 394 backyards, however the Panthers still came away with a 43-31 loss at Louisiana Technology. Sock It 2 Me. Today’s FIU vs UMass game noted the fifth straight period that both programs have actually fulfilled. In the previous 2 conferences, the Panthers shamed the minutemen, racking up 63 points in each of their last 2 competitions (63-24 in 2018 & & 63-45 in 2017), establishing yet an additional confidence-building encounter. The Panthers made it moisten the Minutemen, 44-0, as it fairly actually rained down in Riccardo Silva stadium. I can’t stand the rain and also Missy Elliot “do not want no one-minute guy”.

The game was off to an interesting, yet slow-moving start, with FIU recovering a UMass fumble, yet then going for a Jose Borregales 22-yard field objective. It went from 0-100 (in fact 44) actual quick! FIU scored 3 straight goals: An Anthony Jones six-yard run, a Tony Gaitor 30-yard catch, and also the 3rd of which was a 90-yard punt return from Maurice Alexander to begin the second quarter. The run benefited the second-longest punt return in institution history, behind T.Y. Hilton’s 97-yard return against FAU on Nov. 12, 2011. Tony Gaitor had profession highs with 7 catches as well as 103 getting backyards. Work It.

The #SlumpBuster has actually been determined. ➡ @UMassFootball @Jmoneyyy12 dropped a dollar to @tony_gaiter!
On the next drive, @_hardtime3 took a #Minutemen punting to the [email protected] leads 24-0 in the 2nd qtr. #PawsUp

The Panthers would include two more TD’s. The initial was off an Austin Maloney 25-yard catch from James Morgan. The various other TD came on a Napoleon Maxwell goalline one-yard run. They additionally added two even more Borregales area objectives. Pass That Dutch.

The protection wasn’t ready to let the infraction take all the shine. The 115 backyards enabled by FIU vs UMass set a program document, defeating the previous low of 154 backyards permitted versus FAMU in 2005. Jamal Gates blazed a trail with 6 takes on. Sage Lewis came away with his second interception of the season. Shed Control.

Next up, FIU hosts Charlotte for Homecoming at 7:00 p.m. ET. The 49ers are presently 1-3, having actually lost 45-27 to FAU last week, yet will be coming off a bye week.

Excellent Game, [email protected] defeats @UMassFootball 44-0.
The shutout was just second in school background! #PawsUp
