On this edition of the Black & Gold Banneret Podcast, Cyrus Smith of SB Nation's Underdog Dynasty joins Jeff Sharon and Luke Sarris to talk about the FAU Football program and how far they have come in the 15 years since UCF and FAU last met on the field.

Given that both are relatively young metropolitan public institutions in Florida, FAU sees itself as a sort of mini-UCF, and clearly wants to follow the UCF program's pathway to college football success, from coming up from FCS and moving conferences to building an on-campus stadium and locking up a high-profile coach to build the program.
