We now know that a Great Depression strikes the U.S. economy every 70 years or so. Halley's Comet? It streaks past the earth every 76 years. But an opportunity to see Florida International win its fourth game in a row? Truly the rarest of events.
Wiz correspondent Greg wasn't about to let this moment pass, so he ventured deep into the heart of Sun Belt country for Saturday's game between the visiting Golden Panthers and Troy Trojans.
As you can see, the Women of Troy were out in force to cheer the home team. They weren't disappointed. The Trojans scored a 33-23 victory before 19,316 at Movie Gallery Veterans Stadium, halting Florida International's streak.

Brownie, you're doing a helluva job.
If you were looking to pack on a few pounds before kickoff, this was the place to be.
If you were looking to drink your pregame meal, this was the place to be.
Your military dollars at work.
