As Florida Atlantic prepares to play No. 11 Texas on Saturday in their season opener, FAU's offense has been watching plenty of film of the Longhorns - and of Auburn.

Longhorns defensive coordinator Will Muschamp, who was an assistant with the Dolphins under Nick Saban, will make his Texas debut after being hired from Auburn in the off-season. FAU is charting plenty of tendencies from films of Muschamp's defense when he was with the Tigers.

 

"That is something that is hard to prepare for because they have a different coordinator," FAU quarterback Rusty Smith said. "We're preparing the best we can with the film that we have."
