Recap: FIU vs. Fla Atlantic

Miami, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Anthon Samuel ran for two touchdowns, Alex Gardner added 100 yards and a score on the ground, and the FIU Golden Panthers downed Florida Atlantic, 38-10, in a Conference USA matchup at FIU Stadium.

The second half was delayed two hours because of lightning, and FIU scored 24 unanswered points when play resumed to put the game away.

Alex McGough threw for 160 yards and added a rushing TD for the Golden Panthers (3-3, 2-0 C-USA), winners of two straight following losses to Pittsburgh and Louisville.

Jay Warren ran for a touchdown, while Jaquez Johnson completed just 19-of-42 passes for 225 yards and an interception for the Owls (2-4, 1-1), who failed to build off a win of UTSA.

Clinton Taylor fumbled a punt return early in the first quarter, and FAU capitalized in the form of a Greg Joseph 26-yard field goal.

The Panthers responded with the game's first two touchdowns to open up a 14-3 lead. Minutes after the field goal, Gardner broke a 24-yard touchdown run, and early in the second, Samuel plunged in from a yard away.

Warren's 31-yard burst up the middle capped a quick 3-play, 85-yard flurry a little later, and it stayed 14-10 for quite a while.

After the lengthy delay, which saw the stands empty, FIU stepped on the gas.

Austin Taylor kicked a 37-yard field goal, and Warren coughed the ball up just as he was about to plunge into the end zone for the tying score. Richard Leonard returned the fumble 100 yards for a touchdown, and scoring runs from McGough and Samuel in the fourth quarter capped the rout.
