Lane Kiffin 'Would Love to Play Bama' After Conference USA Championship Win


In his first season as FAU's head coach, the former Alabama offensive coordinator made headlines from coast-to-coast seemingly on a daily basis for his tweeting habits off the field.

Lane Kiffin's first season at Florida Atlantic brought the school's first Conference USA championship, as the Owls defeated North Texas 41-17 for the league title on Saturday.

Once the final seconds ticked off the clock, FAU players raced across the field to put on the C-USA championship shirts and hats.

The Owls didn't let up after halftime, scoring on a 54-yard Jason Driskel-to-Kalib Woods hookup.

FAU was once again led by running back Devin "Motor" Singletary. Singletary has 29 rushing touchdowns, which ties the Conference USA single-season record. Wide receiver Karmin Solomon's 22-yard touchdown pass to John Franklin, who had taken the snap at quarterback to begin the play, extended the lead to 10-0.

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