  • Lane Kiffin, FAU agree to 10-year contract extension

On Monday, he told Jake Elman of the Palm Beach Post he was pleased with what the contract discussions represented amid his first season on the job.

If the Zips hope to have any chance of pulling off the massive upset over the Owls in enemy territory, they will need to find some type of continuity at the quarterback position. The Zips won the first bowl game in school history in 2015, defeating Utah State, 23-21.

Perhaps Kiffin's new deal with FAU shows he is ready to settle down in Boca Raton. Thus, given Coach Kiffin's experience as a recruiter, don't be surprised if the competitive recruiting business in South Florida doesn't have added competition this season.

The only other team with a chance to claim that distinction would be UCF, if the Knights can beat Auburn in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl on January 1. You can get scores, updates, stats, previews and more for these games and all of the bowl games on our Bowl Games Scoreboard. The Owls, who went 3-9 each of the past three years, have won nine consecutive games and captured the Conference USA title this season. They defeated North Texas earlier this month in the Conference USA title game. He was sacked in his second season with the Oakland Raiders, left after one year at Tennessee for the USC job and then was sacked during his fourth season with the Trojans in 2013.

Head coach Terry Bowden's team started out 1-3 in what looked like another mediocre season, but the Zips started beating the mediocre teams, then stunned Western Michigan and beat a superior OH squad to take control of the MAC East. FAU is second nationally with 47 rushing TDs.

"And we haven't done anything else differently, so it has to be Lane", Kelly said. Allen (1,658 yards, 13 TD) has practiced for the bowl game and says he wants to play, but also says he still has shoulder pain.

Akron is making its second bowl appearance in three seasons.

FAU head coach Lane Kiffin walks off the team bus before the team's November 3 game versus Marshall. "This is just the beginning".
