FAU expects sellout against Miami after record ticket sales — Many people in FAU ’s athletic department - from athletic director Pat Chun to coach Charlie Partridge to director of sales Brian Treiser - understand the upcoming football season is a pivotal one for the school. The Owls, who are entering their second season in Conference USA , have the potential to be a bowl eligible team.

FAU's Partridge excited to host Meyer, Ohio State at camp — Throughout his career, Charlie Partridge has understood the importance of building relationships. Partridge has cultivated many of them throughout college football, whether as a player, an assistant coach or during the past year as FAU's head coach.

Boca Raton Bowl date, kickoff time announced — Doug Mosley wants to make the Boca Raton Bowl an annual must-see event, both for college football and for Palm Beach County. Mosley, the bowl’s executive director, hopes to build off the game’s success last year when he announced Thursday that the Boca Raton Bowl will be played Dec.

Dolphins' undrafted linebackers have their sights set on earning a roster spot — Each of the undrafted rookie linebackers the Dolphins signed ahead of their two-day rookie minicamp felt he belonged. Individually, Mike Hull, Zach Vigil, Jeff Luc and Neville Hewitt face long odds to be on the field when the season opens Sept. 13 against the Washington Redskins.

FAU's Ricky Santiago overcomes heart surgery to lead surging Owls — Most of the time, Ricky Santiago does not think about his heart when he plays baseball. He tries his best not to focus on the past - the struggles he once had breathing, the agonizing days in the hospital, the anxiousness he felt June 2, 2014.

Colts select FAU's D'Joun Smith in third round of NFL draft — D'Joun Smith did not spend Friday solely thinking about which franchise would select him in the NFL draft. Smith, unlike many of the other NFL prospects, had an obligation before sitting in front of a TV. Just hours before the start of the draft's second round, Smith was inside the student union on FAU's campus.

FAU's D'Joun Smith has battled through adversity to earn shot at NFL — Consider D'Joun Smith's football career as one shaped by three conversations, three distinct moments with different outcomes for each: a promise, a decision and a lesson. The three conversations, and subsequent events, have propelled Smith to his latest moment, his latest achievement. Later this week, Smith is slated to be selected in the NFL draft.

FAU losses lopsided game to Old Dominion, 15-3 — The FAU Owls, the team with the best overall record among Conference USA teams entering Friday's game, were blitzed in the early innings against Old Dominion, a team that has struggled all season. The Monarchs scored seven runs in the first two innings and the Owls, ranked 14th in USA Today's poll, were never able to make the game close.

Partridge weighing linebacker options after spring game — Charlie Partridge walked into his office Sunday ready to watch the film of FAU's spring game from a day earlier. Partridge, as he always does, evaluated every Owl on the team. Yet he was intrigued to analyze how his linebackers performed.

Canadiens hand lackluster Panthers 4-1 defeat — The roars were load inside the BB&T Center and they occurred often. Most of those cheers, though, were not for the hometown Panthers, who entered their game against the Montreal Canadiens on Easter Sunday for the first time this season with nothing significant on the line.
