Florida Atlantic playing a "home" game in Detroit? It happens Saturday when the Owls "play host" to Michigan State in Ford Field. The game was originally to be played in Florida Atlantic's new on-campus stadium in Boca Raton, but construction is behind schedule and the facility won't open until next season. Hence the decision to move the game to Detroit, where "Spartans in the D" billboards — paid for by Florida Atlantic — can be spotted around town. The Owls will play their other four home games at Lockhart Stadium in Fort Lauderdale.
As a run-up to the start of the season, the Wiz will display one poster each day until our supply is exhausted.
Then we turn it over to readers, who will vote on the poster of the year. In the meantime, send your team's poster schedule to jayzuma (at) gmail.com.
Last year, the site displayed 69 posters. This is poster No. 71 for 2010. Thanks to Dexter!
