Florida Atlantic tried to focus on football for a few hours at No. 9 Wisconsin.

Hurricane Irma is bearing down on South Florida, with the storm expected to make landfall early Sunday morning. The Florida Atlantic campus is closed through at least Monday. 

 

Wisconsin has offered to put the team up for as long as needed, and has offered to use of the Badgers' practice facilities. The Owls plan to stay in Madison to at least Sunday, and possibly longer depending on when airports open again in Florida.

 

The Owls were off to an admirable start against the more talented Badgers, trailing just 21-14 late in the second quarter. Here's one of their big plays in the first half.
