Up 10-0 over the No. 9 team in the country, USU didn’t want to let UW back into the game.The timeout, taken right before the Badgers were flagged for a false start that resulted in a third-and-12 situation, would help keep enough time on the clock for the Aggies to possibly march down the field and pad their 10-point lead.All they needed was a stop on third down, but senior tight end Troy Fumagalli had other plans.An incomplete pass would’ve left the Badgers facing a fourth down outside of field goal range at the Utah State 49.
Florida Atlantic head coach Lane Kiffin has a knack for being the center of attention. Whether he’s coaching in the NCAA or the NFL, in the south or out west, as a head coach or as an assistant, controversy and national headlines seem to follow the 42-year-old like his very own shadow.So it’s no surprise that the majority of the attention directed towards a Florida Atlantic program that’s attempting to recover from three straight 3-9 seasons has centered around the accomplished but erratic head coach since he left his job as offensive coordinator for Alabama the week before the national title game.Kiffin has worked hard to make the roster his own, installing his son Chris as defensive coordinator and adding 12 transfers from junior college and FBS programs, but for now he’ll primarily be looking to make the best of the remnants of a squad that finished sixth in Conference USA’s eastern division last season.On offense, that means featuring sophomore running back Devin Singletary, who rushed for 1021 yards on only 152 carries as a true freshman in 2016.
