**FIU wins coin toss and defers. Troy will receive defending south end zone.


11:15 – FIU gets on the board first with a 5-play, 80-yard scoring drive. Glenn Coleman was left wide open on a play action. Jake Medlcok hit him in stride for a 33-yard TD. FIU 7, TROY 0

5:24 – Deon Anthony scores on a 3rd and 14 from 33 yards out. It goes down as the longest rushing touchdown this season for Troy. TROY 7, FIU 7

4:52 – FIU’s Jack Griffin is true for 22-yard FG. Troy was called for a questionable personal foul (late hit) on the drive. FIU would have had third and long if not for penalty. FIU 24, TROY 14
