  • 10-year paper contract won't last for Lane Kiffin

On Tuesday, that looked even more evident when ESPN reported Kiffin agreed to a 10-year contract extension at FAU that runs through 2027.

"This is further proof of FAU's unbridled ambition,"FAU President John Kelly said to ESPN on Tuesday". The FAU Owls (10-3) are set to take on a big underdog in the University of Akron (7-6) Tuesday Night 12/19, 7 pm EST on ESPN.

Ohio University (8-4) vs. UAB (8-4, Conference USA): One of the feel-good stories of college football was the rise of UAB after the school dropped the program in 2014, only to bring it back two years later, and now in its first bowl game with a school record for wins in a season. The Owls are favored by 22 points.

Below are capsule previews of the five bowl games featuring MAC teams.


Bowden's Zips, who lost the Mid-American Conference title game 45-28 to Toledo after winning the league's East Division, are among the team leaders in several defensive categories. So, given the success the program saw this past year under Kiffin, it made all the sense in the world to tack some years on a new deal to try and keep him around for the foreseeable future.

Kiffin ranked 80th among FBS head coaches with $950,000 in total pay for 2017, according to USA Today. The team went undefeated in conference play and that has prompted the school to approach Kiffin about a new contract. He was sacked in his second season with the Oakland Raiders, left after one year at Tennessee for the USC job and then was sacked during his fourth season with the Trojans in 2013.

19, at FAU Stadium in Boca Raton, Florida.

"We're obviously looking toward keeping Lane long term". FAU hired Kiffin, son of legendary defensive National Football League and college coach Monte Kiffin, after he did time as Alabama's offensive coordinator under Nick Saban. The result has been one of the best seasons - maybe the best season - in program history.
