Today was a good day for FIU. The football team beat Middle Tennessee 31-18. The win marked a 8-4 regular season record, the best record the Panthers have ever had so far in program history. Jonathan Faucher, Kedrick Rhodes, T.Y. Hilton, and Jeremiah Harden each scored a touchdown. Hilton’s touchdown marks his seventh receiving TD of the season, tying his own record in 2008 and Cory McKinney in 2002.
Defense was spectacular, especially in the first quarter. They did not allow MTSU to score and held them to only eight yards. Gregory Hackman and Justin Halley each got an interception.
This win improves FIU’s bowl chances. Now, we just need to hope we get an invitation.
