Redshirt junior quarterback Jake Medlock practiced fully Tuesday, albeit with what looked like extra protection around his lower rib cage. Coach Ron Turner said he spoke in error after Saturday’s game against Southern Mississippi and Medlock only was being evaluated for a concussion after a second-quarter hit ended his day.

Faciane honored

Senior defensive tackle Isame Faciane received national honorable mention notice from the College Football Performance Awards for his play Saturday. Faciane’s fumble recovery led to the touchdown that sent FIU into halftime ahead 21-16, and his field-goal block on the final play preserved the 24-23 win. It was Faciane’s second field goal block of the season.
