Tuesday night, Lane Kiffin and the Owls will walk out onto their home field, one of the biggest favorites in the history of bowl games.

FAU is a 22.5 point favorite against Akron in the Boca Raton Bowl.

Part of that is because they are playing a home game. But even more importantly, the Owls are riding a 9-game win streak that saw them sweep through their Conference USA slate all the way to the title.

When you factor they have one of the strongest running games in the country, you can see why they're picked to beat the 7-5 Zips. But coach Lane Kiffin is preaching to his guys not to buy into the hype, calling that kind of talk "rat poison".

The Boca Raton Bowl is Tuesday night at 7pm.
