Lane Kiffin 'Would Love to Play Bama' After Conference USA Championship Win

Kiffin said in an exchange with a reporter.

The Owls, who beat North Texas 69-31 in the regular season, took a 34-0 lead in the first 33 minutes on Saturday.

Meanwhile, arguably the best defensive performances in program history rendered North Texas, the second-best C-USA offense behind FAU, impotent in the first half, limiting the Mean Green to 141 yards of offense and battering Mason Fine, sacking him five times.

FAU out-rushed North Texas 281-81.

Lane Kiffin comments after Florida Atlantic fans chant

FAU head coach Lane Kiffin argues with a referee after a holding call during the second quarter.

"You have to give credit to Coach Kiffin and FAU", North Texas coach Seth Littrell said.

FAU never looked at the Kiffin hire as a risk. "He's had great successes". "So I've got no idea about bowls. So you put all those together. you thought this could be a place where he achieved a level of success that he had not achieved before". Rice had a 75-yard pass in 2013, and UCF had a 74-yard rush in 2007.

The Florida Atlantic Owls are 5-1 at home this season, 8-0 against conference opponents and 1-3 against non-conference opponents. A replay review determined that Franklin dropped the ball in celebration before crossing the goal line, and that North Texas made a clear recovery, negating the touchdown and giving the ball to the Mean Green.

Kiffin, the former Alabama offensive coordinator, is in his first year as the Florida Atlantic head coach.
