Florida Atlantic University Owls Football TicketsThe Florida Atlantic University Owls football team is a relative newcomer to college football competition. Founded in 2001, the Owls have developed a strong fanbase throughout Florida in the decades that have followed. The team was launched by coach Howard Schnellenberger, who served in the position for 10 seasons before his retirement. He launched the FAU football program after serving as head coach for the Miami Hurricanes and the Louisville Cardinals. The team was an independent in the NCAA's Division I-AA for its first four years before moving to Division I-A. First, the Owls joined the Sun Belt Conference, where the team won a conference title in 2007. In the 2013-2014 season, however, the FAU Owls moved to Conference USA, where the team is part of the East division. From its earliest days, the Owls aimed to compete against the best teams possible in order to move into a higher division of competition. After Schnellenberger's retirement, three more head coaches helped the team. Today, Lane Kiffin is spurring the Florida Atlantic University Owls on to greater football accomplishments.
