Pierre makes 2 picks, Florida Atlantic tops Western Kentucky
Sat Nov 2, 2019 7:34 PM

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) James Pierre intercepted two passes and Florida Atlantic moved above Western Kentucky in the Conference USA standings with a 35-24 win on Saturday.

Pierre made his second interception with 6:07 left in the fourth quarter, returning Ty Storey's pass 30 yards to the FAU 41. The Owls (6-3, 4-1) then drove 59 yards on nine plays, punctuated by Nick Tronti's 22-yard TD run that capped the scoring with 2:10 left in the game.

Chris Robison passed for 208 yards and two TDs. Florida Atlantic led 28-14 on Robison's 51-yard TD pass to Willie Wright on the first possession of the second half. That ended a run of four straight touchdowns for the Owls.

The Hilltoppers (5-4, 4-2) cut the deficit to 28-21 on Storey's 5-yard TD pass to Jacquez Sloan late in the third quarter and Cory Munson's 28-yard field goal brought Western Kentucky within 28-24.

Storey passed for 380 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions for the Hilltoppers.
