FIU Golden Panthers take flight to Motown

It's official: FIU is on its way to the team's first bowl appearance.

The Panthers left for Detroit on a Thursday morning charter flight, with wide receivers coach Frank Ponce firing off this message on Twitter: "SIRENS ARE SOUNDING OFF! HEADED TO THE AIRPORT. GETTING ON "GOLDEN PANTHER ONE" -- DETROIT HERE WE COME."

FIU is expected to arrive in Detroit early afternoon, then attend a 2 p.m. press conference ahead of its first practice on Ford Field.

I'll be joining the team up in Michigan on Saturday, but if I get any photos/stories from the frozen north, I'll happily pass them along.
