FAU (33-3, 18-2 C-USA) have been pretty dominant all year and haven’t lost a game in over a month. The Owls earned a first-round upset over Memphis and then had a tight game against 16-seed Fairleigh Dickinson in the Round of 32, but they pulled out a 78-70 win.
Tennessee is a 5.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook. The point total sits at 131.
