Redshirt junior quarterback Jake Medlock hit redshirt sophomore wide receiver Dominique Rhymes over freshman Brad Hyman-Muhammad for a 99-yard bomb while FIU worked on offensive sets from inside its own 5-yard line in Tuesday’s practice.

Later, Medlock found freshman tight end Jonnu Smith up the middle on a seam route.

This and that

• Senior tight end Zach Schaubhut worked as a placekick holder for the second consecutive day. Chris Ayers Schaubhut played quarterback in high school, putting teeth into a fake field goal or bad-snap situations.

• Running back Anthon Samuel remained out with a concussion. … Sick wide receiver Glenn Coleman tried to practice after receiving an IV but was held out. … Freshman quarterback Israel Paopao hopped about on crutches with a walking boot on his right foot to protect a sprain.
