Saturday will mark FIU’s second game against Louisiana Tech and first trip to Ruston, Louisiana, but the 10th in the state of Louisiana.
The Panthers have gone 3-6 in their previous games there, all nine against former Sun Belt Conference rivals Louisiana-Monroe and Louisiana-Lafayette (which prefers to be called just “Louisiana”).
TIME SET FOR UMASS
FIU’s Oct. 3 game at UMass, long left TBA on kickoff time, will start at 3 p.m. and be available via streaming on ESPN3.
Last year’s punting exasperated the FIU coaches. This year, freshman Stone Wilson and redshirt junior Chris Ayers have combined for a 40.78 net punting average, best in Conference USA and 28th in the nation.
