FAU Stadium ... Home of Owl Football


Map


Construction was completed on the 29,419-seat, open-air FAU Football Stadium in 2011, in time to host the first game on October 15 against Western Kentucky. The stadium has 32 loge boxes and 24 suites, and the skybox and press box allows for a view of the Atlantic Ocean, the only stadium in the nation that can claim that.

Charlie Partridge

 

Head Coach

Charlie Partridge was named Florida Atlantic University's Head Football Coach on December 17, 2013 becoming just the fourth person to hold that title, since the program's inception in 2001. Partridge, a south Florida native, returned home to lead a program that completed its first season as a member of Conference USA and became eligible for a bowl game in 2013.

Upon his arrival, the touted recruiter began building a staff, a recruiting base and a culture by which the program would stand over time. Within weeks that staff was in place and assigned to every high school from the I-4 corridor south. By February, the Owls had added 24 players, 15 from their targeted area. That class included offensive lineman and future Freshman All-American Reggie Bain. The Owls posted a 3-9 record and saw six games decided by a touchdown or less within the last two minutes. Lucky Whitehead became the first FAU wide receiver to earn C-USA post-season honors and D'Joun Smith was taken in the third round of the NFL draft. 2015 followed the same blue print. The recruiting class, tabbed as the best class among C-USA schools, comprised of 27 players, including USA Today Freshman linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair and two others earned a spot on the C-USA All-Freshmen team as well as earned C-USA Honorable Mention recognition. Three players garnered First Team All C-USA honors in 2015. The Owls finished with 3-9 record and saw five games decided by seven points or less. As part of the cultural shift, the Owls posted the most 3.0+ G.P.A.s in program history (46) and the squad's highest team G.P.A. FAU's defensive line set a new program record in sacks (35) and junior Trey Hendrickson led C-USA in total sacks with 13.5 and was No. 2 nationally in both forced fumbles and sacks. The Owls deep running back corps ended 2015 with the second most rushing yards in program history (1977) surpassing the 2014 squad (1,963). The special teams unit continued to be a highlight of the program. Junior Dalton Schomp led the nation with a 48.0 yards per punt average. As a unit, FAU was No. 5 nationally in net punting (41.71 net yards per punt).

Partridge came to FAU after a one-year stint at the University of Arkansas where he coached three different defensive linemen to all-conference honors. Defensive ends Chris Smith and Trey Flowers were second-team All-SEC, and defensive tackle Darius Philon was voted to the SEC All-Freshman team. Smith ranked third in the SEC with 8.5 sacks, the eighth-highest single-season total in school history, and ranked seventh in the conference with 11.5 tackles for loss. Flowers ranked second in the SEC with 13.5 tackles for loss, and his three forced fumbles were fourth in the conference. Philon tied for fourth in the SEC with two forced fumbles in conference play and finished the year leading the UA defensive linemen with 46 tackles, including 9.0 for loss and 3.0 sacks.
