In his first year with the Owls, Kiffin is already the second-winningest coach in Florida Atlantic's history so perhaps Bama will be in the picture someday.

The Florida Atlantic Owls and the North Texas Mean Green will face off Saturday in the Conference USA Championship Game at FAU Football Stadium in Boca Raton, Florida.

The Owls scored on all but two first half possessions en route to a 27-0 halftime lead.

The FAU football team celebrates with the winning trophy on Saturday afternoon after they beat North Texas for the C-USA Championship 41-17.

FAU (10-3) had 633 yards of offense, and Kiffin's last play call of the day was one where he ordered his brother - defensive coordinator Chris Kiffin - to get a water bucket dumped on him.

With Win No. 10, FAU set the school's single-season victory mark, breaking the standard of nine set by the legendary Howard Schnellenberger's first team back in 2004.

And, as has been the case throughout 2017, FAU's offense played a pivotal role in the success.

For a little more than a half, they were wrong. Smith is now the running backs coach at... FAU. Singletary has 29 rushing touchdowns, which ties the Conference USA single-season record.

With Singletary handling things on the ground, quarterback Jason Driskel and receiver led the passing game.

It wasn't a flawless day for the Owls, however, as John Franklin III had a long touchdown run taken away after he Deshaun Jacksoned the moment.
