Ongoing lane closures for the new Spanish River Interchange at I-95 also will be suspended to accommodate traffic for the game, which will be at FAU stadium, according to the Florida Department of Transportation.

Dick Vitale is skeptical of Lane Kiffin's commitment to FAU.

Bowden also credits a late switch at quarterback, turning the job over to redshirt freshman Kato Nelson late in the season, for rejuvenating Akron's offense. But in Boca Raton, Florida, they are playing the "Son" Bowl.

RB Devin Singletary, Florida Atlantic: Who got to be Kiffin's main man to handle the offense? Gilbert is a first-team all-Mid-American Conference selection who has recorded more than 120 tackles each of the last two seasons.

In just his first season as head coach of FAU, Kiffin is already second in program history in wins (10) to program founder Howard Schnellenberger. They defeated North Texas earlier this month in the Conference USA title game. 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. CMU wrapped up the 2017 season on a five-game winning streak as QB Shane Morris (2,908 yards/26 TD) got hot.

Smith has said he paid the architectural firm for the plans to what became Bank of America Stadium, and gave them to Richardson . "I believe that it is time to turn the franchise over to new ownership", Richardson said in a statement on the team's website.


"And we haven't done anything else differently, so it has to be Lane", Kelly said.

Akron is making its second bowl appearances the last three years but only the third in program history. We expected to win the conference championship, and we expected to play in a premier bowl like this.

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.
