FIU football

Florida International did what the Miami Hurricanes could not, and completed their stay in the south Florida stadium with a final victory - a 38-19 triumph over North Texas.Not only that, but the win snapped a 23-game losing skid for the Golden Panthers, which was the longest in the nation. FIU was also the last Division 1-A team to get a ‘W’ this season, meaning all 120 teams have at least one victory for 2007.

Saturday’s Sun Belt showdown was the last-ever college football game played at the 71-year-old facility. FIU spent the season at the O.B. while a new on-campus stadium was being built. And the Hurricanes will be taking their act to Dolphins Stadium next year.

The win was FIU football’s finest Orange Bowl moment.

Except maybe this one.
