Gameweek FIU: The More You Know

October 1, 2010

Opponent: Florida International Sunblazers Golden Panthers (0-3)

Kickoff: Saturday, October 2nd, 3:30pm

Mascot: Roary the Panther

Conference: Sun Belt Conference

Series: This is the first meeting between the two schools. FIU has only had a football program since 2002, which started as an FCS program and moved to FBS program in 2005, making them the fast school to make the jump.

TV/Radio: ESPNU, which we believe finally offers an HD channel on most cable networks…because there is nothing more annoying that watching standard def sports on an HDTV. You can also tune in on 93.7FM in Pittsburgh.

Bloggers: FIU Golden Panther Prowl.  An FIU sports blog from writers at the Miami Herald.  Good stuff, as you will see below…

Fun Facts: The best fun fact we could come up with for FIU actually involves us, The Fighting Wannstaches.  In a Q&A post on the Panther Prowl blog last November, the question was asked as to who FIU would fill the opening in their 2010 schedule with.  See the answer for yourself…

Can we get a woooooooooooo?
