This afternoon the FAU Owls got their asses kicked by seventh ranked Oklahoma 63-14

Shortly after FAU’s 63-14 loss at No. 7 Oklahoma on Saturday, a loss coach Lane Kiffin called “embarrassing,” Florida Atlantic’s Alumni Association sent a mass text proclaiming the Owls the victors.

“FAU just beat #7 ranked OU on their home field. Let’s celebrate by helping more athletes,” the text read.

A link then appeared taking followers to an FAU web page that read in part:

“FAU Beats Oklahoma! Winning in Paradise”

FAU also had a post on their website that claimed they had won.

Pretty terrible day to be an FAU fan.
