The FIU Panthers and Florida Atlantic Owls face off in a Week 5 college football showdown at FAU Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2020, Florida Atlantic came away with the 38-19 victory. 

The FIU Panthers won their first game of the season against LIU Post, but since that point they have lost three games in a row. In the last game, FIU was competitive against Central Michigan, but they blew the game late. Florida International gave up 21 points in the 4th quarter, and that led to the four-point loss. Quarterback Max Bortenschlager had a big game throwing for 395 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. FIU on the season is averaging 28.2 points per game while their defense is giving up 29.5 points per game. On the season Bortenschlager has thrown for 1,105 yards, eight touchdowns, and three interceptions. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Florida Atlantic Owls who sit with a 2-2 record and in the last game the offense really struggled scoring only seven points against Air Force and that led to the blowout defeat. Florida Atlantic is averaging 26 points per game while their defense is giving up 21.5 points, Under center for the Owls is N’Kosi Perry and on the season he has thrown for 989 yards, seven touchdowns, and one interception. In this game, if the Owls want to win this game, they need the offense to be good, or they are going to have some real issues winning this game.
