Numbers that support FIU’s contention that it’s the youngest FBS team in the nation: of the 65 players who have played a snap for FIU this season, 28 had not earned a letter yet. Only 15 of the 65 have two or more letters.
Nearing a record
FIU has blocked three kicks in the first five games this season, halfway to the school record of six in an entire season, set in 2009. Isame Faciane, with two blocks this season and for his career, is one off the FIU regular season and career record held by Antwan Barnes and Jonathan Faucher.
