Both Green Bay and FIU lost close games in their season openers but had very different outcomes in their second games. Similarities may vanish when they meet on Friday in the Jersey Mike's Classic.
Green Bay lost by four to Indiana State and then got walloped by Wisconsin. FIU lost to Georgia by seven and then blasted D-3 Trinity (FL).
FIU struggled to a 9-17 record last year and had the worst defense in Conference USA, giving up 76 points per game. Most of that team is gone, so this is a new team made up of transfers and recruits. Green Bay averaged 80 points while going 17-16 last year but had one of the worst defenses in the nation, giving up even more than they scored on average. Most of that team is gone and Green Bay also has essentially a new team this year.
