FAU is favored by 22, the largest spread of any postseason game.

Akron is making its second bowl appearances the last three years but only the third in program history.

Florida Atlantic president John Kelly confirmed to ESPN's Chris Low on Tuesday that the university has signed Kiffin to a new 10-year contract. He'll work hard to rebuild his reputation as a head coach, and then he'll blow out of town like a leaf in a tornado the moment a more lucrative opportunity at a bigger program arrives.

Following the incredible season that Kiffin had with the Owls in his first year at the helm, he was not considered for any of the major Power 5 jobs that were open, and soon it was evident he would be returning to FAU for the 2018 season.

Bowden's Zips, who lost the Mid-American Conference title game 45-28 to Toledo after winning the league's East Division, are among the team leaders in several defensive categories.

FAU's losses were to Navy, Wisconsin and Buffalo. However, the Owls truly shine when running back Devin Singletary has the ball in his hands (30 total touchdowns, 6.5 yards per rush attempt).

Stadium and city: FAU Stadium, Boca Raton, Fla.

This season, Akron has allowed 196.7 rushing yards per game.

According to a report from Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman, just hours before FAU is set to play in its bowl game, the two sides are finalizing a huge 10-year contract extension for the controversial coach. All of UAB's losses came on the road, but the team has a tough 1-2 punch in tailback Spencer Brown (1,292 yards, 10 TD) and QB AJ Erdely (2,077 yards passing, 16 TD).
