FAU beat Akron 50-3 at the Boca Bowl

FAU beat Akron 50-3 at the Boca Bowl

ESPN will televise the game live beginning at 6 p.m.

OddsShark notes the Owls are massive 22.5-point favorites in Tuesday's clash with the Zips.

Bowden also credits a late switch at quarterback, turning the job over to redshirt freshman Kato Nelson late in the season, for rejuvenating Akron's offense.

On Tuesday, that looked even more evident when ESPN reported Kiffin agreed to a 10-year contract extension at FAU that runs through 2027.

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 went 10-3 in 2017 and won the Conference USA Championship. The Owls were a ideal 8-0 in Conference USA play and trounced North Texas 41-17 in the conference title game on December 2.

FAU's losses were to Navy, Wisconsin and Buffalo. Singletary has rushed for 1,796 yards and an FBS-high 29 touchdowns for Florida Atlantic while averaging 6.5 yards per carry.

Trump slams 'false' reporting: 'A stain on America!'
Weigel tweeted a photo Friday of the arena in Pensacola where Trump held a rally that evening. Weigel was responding to Trump's claim that the arena had been " packed to the rafters ".

FAU has not played in a bowl game since 2008 and has only won nine games over the last three seasons. All of UAB's losses came on the road, but the team has a tough 1-2 punch in tailback Spencer Brown (1,292 yards, 10 TD) and QB AJ Erdely (2,077 yards passing, 16 TD). The Bobcats, who have been bowl eligible 11 of the last 13 seasons, suffered a 28-23 loss to Troy in the Dollar General Bowl last season.

For more on the Zips, check out SB Nation's MAC blog, Hustle Belt. Although the Zips have a respectable defense (26.3 PAPG), the Owls have way too much firepower in both their passing and rushing games to be stopped in what is effectively a home game.

Kiffin is the second winningest coach in program history in his first year. Toledo will be making its conference-leading 17th bowl appearance and holds an 11-5 record in bowl games.

After skipping out on Tennessee after one season in Knoxville, Kiffin was sacked from his dream job, Southern California.
