Kiffin, Bowden meet as FAU plays Akron in Boca

The Owls will bowl for the first time since 2008 under ex-Miami coach Howard Schnellenberger, and the third time ever.

If the Zips hope to have any chance of pulling off the massive upset over the Owls in enemy territory, they will need to find some type of continuity at the quarterback position.

WHERE: FAU Stadium, Boca Raton, Fla. He'll work hard to rebuild his reputation as a head coach, and then he'll blow out of town like a leaf in a tornado the moment a more lucrative opportunity at a bigger program arrives.

Below are capsule previews of the five bowl games featuring MAC teams.

That isn't to say he isn't thoroughly enamored with the program he turned around in one season. Sophomore running back Devin Singletary rushed for 1,796 yards and an FBS record-high 29 touchdowns (he also had a touchdown reception) to earn C-USA Most Valuable Player Award honors.

China's envoy expressed concern about a hardening of positions, saying the current crisis "hardly makes one optimistic". But the White House distanced itself from those remarks by Tillerson and said now is not the time for negotiations.

You can listen to the interview with Kiffin below. The Owls were a flawless 8-0 in Conference USA play and trounced North Texas 41-17 in the conference title game on December 2.

The Chippewas will be making their fourth consecutive bowl appearance, the fifth in the last six years, and the ninth in the last 12.

"And we haven't done anything else differently, so it has to be Lane", Kelly said to ESPN. Allen (1,658 yards, 13 TD) has practiced for the bowl game and says he wants to play, but also says he still has shoulder pain.

This is Bowden's sixth season at Akron and his second bowl with the Zips, who went to the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl in 2015.

FAU is obviously enthusiastic about having a legitimate head coach lead its football program to the Promised Land, perhaps a coveted spot in the top 25. We expected to win the conference championship, and we expected to play in a premier bowl like this.
