Florida Atlantic hopes to pick up its first Sun Belt win of 2012 against Louisiana-Monroe.
The Florida Atlantic Owls will be looking to end a four-game losing streak when they travel to play the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks on Saturday.
Florida Atlantic (1-4, 0-2 Sun Belt) began the season with a 7-3 home win over Wagner, but the Owls have since lost four straight games by an average of 22 points. Two of those losses were against SEC powers Georgia and Alabama. The Owls lost, 56-20, in Athens, Ga., and 40-7 in Tuscaloosa, Ala. FAU is coming off a tough 20-14 loss at North Texas.
Louisiana-Monroe (3-2, 1-0) has been a bit of a darling in the college football world. The Warhawks upset then-No. 8 Arkansas in Week 2, and ULM nearly knocked off Auburn and Baylor in Weeks 3 and 4. In its Sun Belt opener, ULM defeated Middle Tennessee, 31-17.
