Kiffin re-tweeted Low's story, adding: Lane Kiffin, Florida Atlantic Owls reach new 10-year deal #greatpresident #getsit #bocabowl7pmespn.

Although there will be a good amount of pressure on the Owls, Kiffin should have them ready, and they will record a victory to close out the head coach's first season in charge. Pulling off a feat like that warrants the head coach to be rewarded, and that is apparently exactly what the FAU administration is doing for Kiffin. The Owls will play Akron in the Cheribundi Tart Cherry Boca Raton Bowl Tuesday night. About a year ago this time, Kiffin was unceremoniously being booted from Playoff coordinating duties at Alabama in advance of the National Championship Game.

FAU is favored by 22, the largest spread of any postseason game. The Owls were a ideal 8-0 in Conference USA play and trounced North Texas 41-17 in the conference title game on December 2. That's a great feeling, seeing them get what they deserve.

How Akron tries to counter the playmakers on the FAU roster will be key for it to stay in the game, but with a leading rusher not over 400 yards, it will have to use the ability of Kato Nelson in the passing game to throw punches back at the Owls.
