FIU favored Saturday; a USA minute

FIU opened Sunday as a 5.5-point favorite over South Alabama and is now down to 3.5 or 4 in most places, despite the news that quarterback Jake Medlock would play Saturday (which Mario Cristobal reiterated on the Sun Belt conference call Monday). The over/under, which started at 51, has gone up to 52.5.

South Alabama, 2-6 overall, is in its first year of FBS (nee Division I) play and fourth season as a program. Recently, USA lost by 36-29 to Arkansas State, beat FAU in overtime and lost 38-24 to Louisiana-Monroe in its last three games.

"We've gotten better the last three weeks and a lot of that's due to our offense getting better," South Alabama coach Joey Jones said on the Sun Belt conference call. "We struggled offensively earlier in the year. We were rotating quarterbacks. We've gone with one quarterback and that's really lhelped us. Our defense has been playing pretty good most of the year."

And that is your USA Minute.
