Lane Kiffin has brutally honest explanation for scheduling Ohio State
Lane Kiffin’s Florida Atlantic Owls open their regular season at Ohio State next Saturday, a game in which they’ll be significant underdogs. It certainly doesn’t seem as though the coach has any regrets about it, though.
When asked Friday by 640 The Hurricane’s Andy Slater about the benefits of a team like FAU opening the season at Ohio State, Kiffin was his typical brutally honest self.
Q: What's the benefit of FAU playing at Ohio State?
Lane Kiffin: "Money"

Games like this one usually mean a pretty big paycheck for the smaller team. Kiffin will clearly take it, though he could’ve said something about testing his team against the nation’s best and seeing where they stand.
Kiffin has remained his usual trolling self this year. It remains to be seen if the Owls can keep it close against the Buckeyes, but as long as FAU gets that paycheck, he seems fine with the outcome.
