Lane Kiffin, Owls Working On 10-Year Extension

Lane Kiffin, FAU agree to 10-year contract extension

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.

Head coach Terry Bowden's team started out 1-3 in what looked like another mediocre season, but the Zips started beating the mediocre teams, then stunned Western Michigan and beat a superior OH squad to take control of the MAC East.

Officials are expecting big traffic for Tuesday night's Boca Raton Bowl, and they're urging those not attending the game to avoid the area.

Now, he will have the opportunity to play in the first of possibly many bowl games with FAU.

"That keeps you in ballgames, That's going to be one of our hardest jobs - slowing down that offense that he's got at Florida Atlantic", Bowden said, referring to Kiffin.

3 children, mother die in Brooklyn house fire
The fire was reminiscent of a 2015 conflagration that killed seven children of another Orthodox Jewish family in Brooklyn. Friends and neighbors say the family was known to light menorah candles in celebration of Hanukkah .

Akron is making its second bowl appearances the last three years but only the third in program history.

Below are capsule previews of the five bowl games featuring MAC teams. Given his job back when Kiffin decided to make a switch after a 1-2 start, Driskel has completed 65.6 percent of his passes for 1,977 yards and 13 touchdowns against only 4 interceptions.

Stadium and city: FAU Stadium, Boca Raton, Fla. Central Michigan suffered a 55-10 loss to Tulsa in the Miami Beach Bowl last season. Akron recovered to reach the Mid-American Conference championship game for the first time since 2005, then lost to Toledo 45-28. The Owls rank sixth in rushing offense with 283 yards per game, and ninth in scoring offense at 39.8.

Even with a considerable raise from his reported $1 million a year salary, Kiffin is still likely far behind Mullen's $6 million per year contract. There was speculation that Kiffin might head elsewhere after he led the team to nine straight wins to end the season and proved he can handle being a head coach again.

In the tough ACC, where Miami, Virginia, Florida State and Clemson reside, the Blue Devils were on 3-5 overall.
