The headline, one of the few times I'll refer to FIU Stadium by its given nickname, pretty much says it all: game time for The Shula Bowl between FIU and FAU on Alfonso Field at FIU Stadium will be 6 p.m., Nov. 12.
Wide receiver Glenn Coleman's bruised ribs apparently have healed and he'll be fine for Saturday at Western Kentucky. Defensive tackle Joshua Forney (sprained knee) and free safety Chuck Grace (sprained knee) both are day-to-day -- officially. Grace was fielding punts out of pads before the Troy game and Cristobal allowed that he'll probably play Saturday. It's no accident FIU's pass defense, lowlighted by a gold kryptonite vulnerability to the play action pass, went into a recession when Grace went down before the season's fourth game.
