Overview:

FGCU comes into this mid week tilt vs Miami as winners of their past two ASUN Conference series, and winners of six games in a row. The Eagles offense is clicking on all cylinders right now, and no lead against the Eagles is safe.

Miami, who was ranked #15 previously last week, was swept this past weekend vs the University of Pittsburgh, and is looking to get back on track vs FGCU. Miami was ranked #5 and beat FGCU 15-2 at Swanson Stadium on March 17th, so the Eagles are looking to avenge that tough loss Wednesday night! It should be a great game, and the Eagles will now face Miami twice in a week, with the finale vs the Hurricanes taking place on the road on March 21st.

Prediction:

FGCU 6 Miami 4
