FAU, UCF and the fine art of trolling Alabama

FAU coach Lane Kiffin's tweets took aim at Alabama. UCF declared itself the national champ, again at the Tide's expense. How their social media strategy (and lots of wins) earned both schools national attention.

'Bama family': Kiffin lets Ingram train at FAU

Former Alabama Heisman Trophy running back Mark Ingram, who is currently suspended, worked out at Florida Atlantic on Tuesday with Lane Kiffin and other members of the FAU coaching staff.

When walk-ons get coveted scholarships (4:31)

With 209 passing yards in the first half, Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray is just 9 of those halves away from tying Baker Mayfield's 10 halves of 200 yards (T-2nd in FBS) during his 2017 Heisman run.

Oklahoma dropped 42 points on FAU in the first half but maybe there's a silver lining in all of this for the Owls. You see FAU allowed 35-plus points in only one game once last season -- the season opener when Navy won 42-19. FAU ended up going 11-3 last year. So maybe all is not lost or the Owls.

It appears that Kyler Murray is now done for the day. Austin Kendall comes in near the end of the first half. Murray's day ended pretty well: 9/11 for 209 yards and two touchdowns (both 65 yards). Also ran the ball four times for 23 yards, including that Mike Vick-like 15-yard reverse-field scamper on OU's first drive

The first half isn't even over with in Norman and Oklahoma has THREE 65-yard TDs on FAU.

No Baker Mayfield, no problem in Norman. Rodney Anderson has already over 100 yards rushing and Kyler Murray has yet to throw an incompletion. The Sooners are pouring it on Lane Kiffin.

Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

Oklahoma just finished the 1st quarter with 28 points. The Sooners only had ONE quarter with 28-plus points all of last season. That's also the most in the first quarter for the Sooners since Nov. 1, 2008 when they scored 35 against Nebraska.

Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

Kyler Murray's 65-yard TD pass to Lee Morris is his second-longest TD pass of his career. He had an 87-yard TD pass against Tulane last season. But really that was more of Morris's TD with how he broke tackles and tip-toed down the sideline before jumping into the end zone.

Jake Trotter ESPN Staff Writer 

Star of the day for the Sooners? Backup tight end Lee Morris, who has a blocked punt and a 65-yard TD reception.

Kyler Murray was electrifying on his first drive in the post-Baker Mayfield era at Oklahoma. Murray's field-reversing, 15-yard scramble keyed OU an touchdown. Murray's speed and quickness will bring a different element to Lincoln Riley's attack.

Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

FAU went with redshirt freshman Chris Robinson as its starting QB on the first drive against Oklahoma. Robinson originally signed with the Sooners but was dismissed from the team in August of 2017, months after being arrested for public intoxication.

Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

This week I asked FAU LB Azeez Al-Shaair what differences he saw in the limited film of OU QB Kyler Murray and he immediately laughed saying "He's a lot better runner than Baker [Mayfield]. Baker's the better overall player, but Murray is a better runner." As far as scheme, Al-Shaair said he didn't notice a difference when Murray was in last year.
