There are bad beats, then there is Florida Atlantic hosting Marshall in 2017.

With the exact same point spread as Friday’s game — FAU -5.5 — Florida Atlantic seemed to have this game all but wrapped up with 14 seconds left in the game.

What happened was astounding — an intentional safety with a 7-point lead and less than 15 seconds left to let Marshall cover +5.5 — and the acknowledgement from Florida Atlantic head coach Lane Kiffin that he knew the point spread is enough get a gambler in a rocket and aim at the sun.

Alas, here we are in the same venue with the same teams and the same line.

This game is about three things for me:

  • Marshall’s strong running game
  • Marshall’s inability to convert drives to points
  • And if both teams running ’12’ personnel so often favors the defenses
