Florida Atlantic football beats UMass to finish with perfect home record


Howard Schnellenberger and Lane Kiffin are the two winningest coaches in Florida Atlantic football history, but neither of them were able to accomplish what Taggart did.


Thanks perhaps to a shorter season than usual due to the coronavirus pandemic, Taggart managed to stay unbeaten at FAU Stadium in just his first year.


Former starter Nick Tronti, who Posey replaced last week, came into the game and threw a touchdown pass to Brandon Robinson.


That streak ended Friday when safety Teja Young picked off UMass quarterback Will Koch in the fourth quarter.


The three running backs — Malcolm Davidson, James Charles and BJ Emmons — were held to 52 yards on 22 carries.


FAU was free this weekend after its original opponent, Conference USA member Old Dominion, canceled fall sports in August due to the coronavirus pandemic.
