12/19/17 - Florida Atlantic quarterback Jason Driskel accounted for four touchdowns, and running back Devin Singletary broke a conference rushing-touchdown record as the Owls defeated Akron 50-3 in the Cheribundi Tart Cherry Boca Raton Bowl on Tuesday night at FAU Stadium. The junior quarterback was 19 of 25 for 270 yards and two passing touchdowns. He added 67 yards rushing and two more scores on 13 carries. Singletary, the nation's leader in rushing touchdowns, already was named Conference USA's MVP and a third-team All-American as a sophomore. He ran 26 times for 124 yards rushing and three touchdowns Tuesday, giving him 32 rushing scores this season. Singletary eclipsed the 100-yard rushing mark in each of the final 12 games to end the season. After taking a 21-3 lead into halftime, Florida Atlantic (11-3) stopped Akron (7-7) on downs at midfield to start the second half.
Singletary scored his second touchdown on fourth down at 9:13 of the third quarter on a 2-yard run. Driskel tossed his second touchdown to wide receiver Willie Wright on a 3-yard pass for a 36-3 lead on the next series. Driskel's second score on the ground was on a 7-yard run on a keeper up the middle just 25 seconds into the fourth quarter. Singletary's final TD run was from 26 yards with 10:47 left. In the first meeting between the schools, Florida Atlantic and Akron both missed field goals on their first series of the game before the Owls converted a second fourth-down conversion for the first score. - The Sports Xchange
12/06/17 - 2017 CONFERENCE USA MOST VALUABLE PLAYER (COACHES): Florida Atlantic sophomore RB Devin "Motor" Singletary is the recipient of the C-USA Most Valuable Player Award, becoming the first rusher to be named C-USA MVP since the award was instituted in 2008. He has put together the most prolific rushing season in FAU history, establishing new school records for rushing attempts (275), rushing yards (1,796), rushing touchdowns (29) and total touchdowns (30). Singletary ranks fourth in the FBS in rushing yards and leads the nation in rushing and total TDs, tying the C-USA records in the latter two categories originally set by UCF's Kevin Smith in 2007, now FAU's running backs coach. He has posted 11 consecutive games with at least 100 yards rushing and the 11 100+-yard outings is the second-most in a season in league history. Singletary led the Owls to their first Conference USA Championship and the school's first bowl appearance since 2008 with a spot in the Cheribundi Tart Cherry Boca Raton Bowl. - Conference USA Football
12/02/17 - Lane Kiffin's first season at Florida Atlantic brought the school's first Conference USA championship, as the Owls defeated North Texas 41-17 for the league title on Saturday. Devin Singletary had 26 carries for 164 yards and three touchdowns for the Owls, who extended their unbeaten streak to nine games and were undefeated against C-USA opponents this season. Jason Driskel completed 15 of 27 passes for 269 yards and a touchdown for FAU, and Kalib Woods had a school-record 208 receiving yards. FAU (10-3) had 633 yards of offense, and Kiffin's last play call of the day was one where he ordered his brother — defensive coordinator Chris Kiffin — to get a water bucket dumped on him. FAU's players then got the head coach with one, and the celebration was underway.
"It's not about me," Kiffin said on the field afterward. "I'm so happy for these players, for these fans. ... It's just a special year." The Owls, who beat North Texas 69-31 in the regular season, took a 34-0 lead in the first 33 minutes on Saturday. FAU had gains of 47, 49, 22, 44, 21 and 34 yards in the first quarter alone, and the lead was never really threatened. Mason Fine completed 28 of 44 passes for 367 yards for the Mean Green (9-4), whose five-game winning streak was snapped. Turner Smiley had a touchdown catch and Evan Johnson ran one in for North Texas, which will be bowl-bound for the second straight year. The 10-win season matches Kiffin's best as a head coach. He went 10-2 at USC in 2011. "You have to give credit to Coach Kiffin and FAU," North Texas coach Seth Littrell said. "They're a really good football team. ... They're unbelievable." - AP College Football
11/11/17 - Devin Singletary rushed for 104 yards and three touchdowns, Kerrith Whyte raced 98 yards to score on a kickoff return — first in program history — and Florida Atlantic cruised to a sixth-straight win, beating Louisiana Tech 48-23 on Saturday. The victory has the Lane Kiffen-coached Owls (7-3, 6-0 Conference USA) bowl eligible for the first time since 2013 with three games to play. Singletary, who entered the game ranked first in the nation with 19 rushing touchdowns, pushed his total to 22 with runs of 3, 2 and 44 yards. Singletary has rushed for 1,360 yards this season, ranked fifth in the nation before the game. Whyte fielded the kickoff that opened the second half, raced straight up the left hashmark through a gap opened by his blockers, spun 360 degrees to break away from a tackler who'd latched onto his shirttail and bounced toward the sideline and into the clear. Louisiana Tech (4-6, 2-4) compiled 512 yards on offense. - AP College Football
