Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that FAU redshirt senior WR Kalib Woods lacks "next level speed and maturity."

"Woods is sure handed, plays with great balance and is a pass catcher who consistently finds ways to separate from opponents," Pauline writes before adding his demerits in terms of the 6-foot-3, 193-pounder's top-end speed and maturity. Character questions are going to play heavily into the redshirt senior's draft evaluation -- he was suspended for the first six games of the campaign due to his alleged part in an offseason brawl. Still, Pauline believes that if a team takes a flier on him even despite off-field concerns, Woods "has enough skill to make a Sunday roster as a fifth receiver."

FAU junior QB Jason Driskel completed 17-of-27 passes for 269 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 41-17 Conference USA Championship Game win over North Texas.

Per usual, the Owls leaned heavily on RB Devin Singletary (164 yards rushing, three touchdowns), but Driskel had his moment in the sun, too, when he connected with Kalib Woods for a 54-yard touchdown early in the third quarter. While the junior's passing numbers on the whole are not particularly noteworthy, FAU did open it up a bit for him down the stretch. He managed just one game of more than 200 yards passing through his first six contests posting stats this year, but finished out on a little four-game stretch surpassing that mark.
Dec 2 - 4:30 PM

FAU redshirt senior WR Kalib Woods caught six passes for 208 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 41-17 Conference USA Championship Game win over North Texas.

Woods (6'3/193) rolled for a 54-yard touchdown catch early in the third quarter. The redshirt senior ended up averaging a succulent 34.6 yards per catch on the afternoon. After sitting out the first six games of the season on suspension for his alleged role in an offseason fight -- he did not make his first catch on the year until Nov. 3, against Marshall -- Woods has notched 100-yard receiving showings in three of five contests.
Dec 2 - 4:21 PM

FAU sophomore RB Devin Singletary rushed for 164 yards and three touchdowns on 26 carries in Saturday's 41-17 Conference USA Championship Game win over North Texas.

Singletary (5'9/200) did as he has done throughout the season. That is, he absolutely shredded. The sophomore broke North Texas' back with a pair of short touchdown runs in the second quarter before later capping off his huge afternoon with a five-yard scoring jaunt in the fourth quarter to provide the final margin of victory. After being held under 70 yards rushing in each of FAU's first two games, Singletary has gone off for at least 100 yards in every one of the Owls' 11 preceding games. He's now rushed for 1,796 yards and 29 touchdowns. In his inaugural season at the helm, Lane Kiffin led his squad to a 10-3 record, including a nine-game winning streak to wrap up the pre-bowl campaign.
Dec 2 - 3:50 PM

FAU sophomore TE Harrison Bryant (ankle) is likely out for Saturday's game against North Texas.

Bryant entered the day questionable to play, and he did not warm up during pregame festivities. He sat out last Saturday's win over Charlotte after injuring his ankle against FIU in mid-November. John Raine is dealing with an undisclosed injury concern, but he'll start if he's active.
Dec 2 - 11:58 AM

FAU sophomore TE Harrison Bryant's availability for Saturday's Conference USA Championship Game showdown with North Texas remains uncertain due to an ankle injury.

Bryant injured his ankle against FIU in mid-November and subsequently sat out last Saturday's win over Charlotte. He's caught 32 passes for 408 yards and five touchdowns when healthy this season. John Raine and Jacob Wilson would see a bump in snaps if Bryant can't play on Saturday, though Raine, himself, is also dealing with an undisclosed injury concern.
Dec 1 - 6:01 PM

FAU freshman WR Willie Wright caught nine passes for 103 yards with a touchdown in a 31-12 victory over Charlotte on Saturday.

Wright has consistently brought in four passes for 40-50 yards all year -- which is good -- but this was, well, better. The freshman wideout leads the Owls in receptions and yards, and he ranks second on the team in touchdowns with four. Wright should continue to get better as he develops, and he could have another big game against North Texas in the Conference USA championship game next week.
Nov 25 - 4:50 PM

FAU sophomore RB Devin Singletary carried the ball 19 times for 108 yards and scored twice in a 31-12 rout of Charlotte on Saturday.

With those two touchdowns, Singletary (5'9/200) now has 27 on the season, and he's scored multiple touchdowns now in seven of his last eight games. If he was playing in a Power Five conference, he'd be a Heisman-Trophy candidate, and he should probably be on watch lists in 2018. Singletary and the Owls will have a chance to win the conference next week when they take on North Texas in the championship game.
Nov 25 - 4:47 PM

FAU sophomore TE Harrison Bryant (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Charlotte.

Bryant (6'5/225) sustained an ankle injury in FAU's win over FIU last weekend. The sophomore owns a 32-408-5 receiving line on the year. There's no current timetable for his recovery.
Nov 25 - 2:11 PM

According to ESPN's Chris Low, Lane Kiffin would be "on board" if Tennessee called him about their coaching vacancy.

We are all here for this kind of chaos. Kiffin coached the Vols for the 2009 season, between his stops with the Raiders and USC. It did not end well, as Tennessee fans acted ridiculous upon his departure. Kiffin's first season with FAU has been impressive, but it remains to be seen if it is a "one and done" situation with Kiffin and the Owls.
Nov 23 - 10:37 AM

FAU sophomore RB Devin Singletary ran 25 times for 164 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 52-24 victory against Florida International.

Singletary has posted nine consecutive 100-yard rushing performances and he has scored at least one touchdown in 10 straight outings. He is one of 11 semifinalists for the Doak Walker Award. 'Motor' leads the FBS in touchdowns with 24 rushing TDs and one receiving score. He'll look to pad his stats at Charlotte next week in the regular season finale.
Nov 19 - 1:21 AM

FAU redshirt senior WR Kalib Woods posted seven receptions for 172 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 52-24 win against Florida International.

Woods is rounding into form, which is just exactly what the rest of Conference USA didn't need - another offensive weapon for the Owls. Woods was reinstated to the team back in late October after missing the first six games due to suspension after an offseason arrest. He has rolled up 10 catches for 290 yards and three touchdowns over the past two outings. He'll look to carry over the momentum into Saturday's regular-season finale at Charlotte.
Nov 19 - 1:15 AM

FAU junior QB Jason Driskel completed 18-of-25 passes for 239 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in Saturday's 52-24 win against Florida International.

Driskel's favorite target was Kalib Woods, as they connected seven times for 172 yards and two touchdowns. The junior entered with six touchdown passes through his eight appearances, so Saturday's performance in a big rivalry was certainly timely. He'll look to carry over the momentum into next Saturday's regular season finale at Charlotte.
Nov 19 - 1:11 AM

FAU junior QB Jason Driskel completed 14-of-17 passes for 221 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 48-23 victory over Louisiana Tech.

He also ran for 23 yards on four carries. With FAU humming in this one, Driskel was mostly asked to make high-percentage throws with a few deep shots sprinkled in. He was nearly perfect, only throwing three incompletions. Driskel is a limited player, but he's turned into a solid game manager in conjunction with star RB Devin Singletary and a turnover-happy defense.
Nov 11 - 6:59 PM

FAU sophomore RB Devin Singletary ran for 104 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 48-23 victory over Louisiana Tech.

Singletary (5'9/200) remains criminally underrated while playing out of the spotlight in Boca Raton, but that will change as the Owls continue to win under Lane Kiffin. Singletary has topped 100 rushing yards in eight straight games, a stretch in which FAU has gone 7-1. The super sophomore is up to 1,360 yards and 22 touchdowns while posting a 16-174-1 receiving line.
