 Lane Kiffin is in his first season as head coach at FAU.

Madison- The issue for Wisconsin and Florida Atlantic won't involve anything leading up to their game this Saturday (11 A.M. on Big Ten Network), but the postgame plans could get a little interesting. Hurricane Irma is bearing down on the Sunshine State, and she could postpone FAU's return to Boca Raton.

If the Owls are forced to stay in Madison the Wisconsin athletic department said it will do anything it can to help FAU feel at home- everything from providing hotel rooms to using the Badgers' practice facilities.

Wisconsin has eight players on its roster from Florida, so head coach Paul Chryst knows this hits home in his locker room.

"It's been interesting to talk to our kids from Florida and kind of where their families are at with it," Chryst said after Thursday's practice. "Those are real things to the players and obviously to any of the teams down there, so it's pretty cool what the University and the athletic department want to do whatever we can to help out."
