Miami, FL– The attack the Miners 32-17 Saturday night, taking treatment of UTEP to prolong their winning touch to 3. led the means, completing 9 of 17 passes for 150 backyards and a goal, tying Paul McCall for third-most touchdown passes at FIU. A mark set in 2005-2009. It was also third consecutive game over the century mark, rushing for 102 lawns and a TD.
FIU’s defense cut Miner’s first drive short with an interception by, converting it to a 32-yard basket via. UTEP comebacked with a goal before the end of the quarter in a 13-play, 75-yard initiative. The protection would later on strike on a high breeze, causing a security.
It was all Panthers the rest of the means, taking quick control in the onset of the second quarter. Morgan connected with junior wideout for the nine-yard rating.
Borregalas flashed the golden boot, toenailing a 34-yard basket and also an additional, this time around at 46 backyards to make it 18-7. He was cash all evening going 3 for three. For the redshirt junior, once he makes call he knows whether it’ll achieve success or otherwise.
“When you hit that A ball, you do not even have to seek out,” Borregalas said.
Jones secured it for FIU with the 2-yard hurrying touchdown early in the final quarter.
The blue and gold are currently 3-1 all-time against UTEP, winning the last three consecutive meetings.
It was another largely remarkable game by the infraction that ranks leading 10 in the country for turn overs permitted, they’ve only given up the ball five times this period. That’s some reliable football there, conventional or no. The team covers the C-USA with the exact same stat.
Coach Butch Davis mored than happy with the defense but did state one of the most disappointing thing of the evening was their lack of ability to finish drives, an issue early in the period.
“When you do not take advantage you always worry if it’s going to return to haunt you,” Davis said. In his several years of training, its those kinds of video games that frighten him the most.
What It Means
The Panthers feel and look like a group ready to make a run to the top of the East Department of the conference. They’re presently chasing the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers (5-2, 4-0 C-USA) as well as while they beat FIU 20-14 earlier in the period, there’s a lot that can still occur. As Butch Davis claimed, they got ta take it one video game each time. Their following slate of video games will definitely be interesting with road video games at Center Tennessee as well as FAU along with a cupcake residence video game against Old Preeminence. Despite their document, heaven Raiders shouldn’t be ignored and the Shula Dish at Boca Raton will likely be an actual slugfest.
If they in some way win all three of those games, then the discussion will truly begin with a championship game in the cards. They’re teaching a one game at a time message but provided the battles of the Hurricanes, the UM game at Marlins Park is most definitely circled on the calendar. Just assume, Captain Morgan versus N’Kosi Perry/Jarren Williams (And Tate Martell because why not). Can you envision if the Panthers somehow drew a distressed at the Battle for Miami? I will not go out on a limb and also claim the odds are great but it’s no less an intriguing video game to expect. Bear in mind, the Canes didn’t wish to play at Riccardo Silva Arena as well as Florida International either played its house video game at the Acid rock or over at Marlins Park … where the Orange Bowl made use of to be. Time for the Miami Coastline Dish redux!
FIU football takes care of UTEP, 32-17.
The Panthers get on a three-game winning streak.
