Punt returns a silver lining for Panthers



Senior Sam Miller’s 41 and 42-yard punt returns against Bethune-Cookman on Saturday boosted his average to 16.7 yards per return, good for 10th in the nation.

Otherwise, FIU’s statistics are as bleak as you might expect for a team outscored 115-23 over the first three games: 119th in rushing offense, 116th in passing offense, 122nd (out of 123) in total offense, 122nd in scoring offense, 110th in rushing defense, 41st in passing defense, 96th in total defense and 114th in scoring defense.
