Charlotte thwarts FAU's bowl hopes with a 27-24 win
BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) Jonathan Cruz's 56-yard field goal with 25 seconds left helped Charlotte spoil any bowl chance for Florida Atlantic, beating the Owls 27-24 on Saturday night.
FAU was looking for its sixth win for the second consecutive week to become bowl eligible for the second straight year. North Texas beat the Owls 41-38 last week.
FAU led 21-10 at halftime. In the third quarter, Benn Lemay's 54-yard touchdown run brought Charlotte (5-7, 4-4 Conference USA) within four. Lemay ran 24 times for 173 yards.
Early in the fourth the 49ers went ahead when Hasaan Klugh ran for a 13-yard TD with 14:21 left. The Owls (5-7, 3-5) tied it with 3:12 to go on Vladimir Rivas' 33-yard field goal.
Chris Robison threw for 273 yards and two TDs for the Owls.
