Since 2016, in fact, no preseason divisional winner (predicted by the media poll by the conference) has finished atop of their division standings.
The Owls’ perfection in bowl games remained intact as Florida Atlantic cruised past SMU 52-28 to win the Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl on Dec. 21 at FAU Stadium.
Kiffin, a veteran of many coaching jobs in his career, both college and pro, resigned following FAU’s 49-6 win over UAB in the C-USA championship game to become the head coach at Ole Miss. Defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer will be the interim coach for the bowl game and recently hired coach Willie Taggart will become the head coach of the Owls following the bowl game.

FAU went just 5-7 (3-5 C-USA) that ended poorly with closed with painful losses to North Texas and Charlotte by three points apiece. This was a year after Coach Lane Kiffin led the Owls to a bowl victory during his debut campaign in Boca Raton in 2017.
