StatSmack! Florida International is better than South Alabama
  • Property crime happens more often per capita in Mobile so you better protect your valuables if you visit (when compared to Miami -- according to the FBI).
  • We're so much better than you, we get lazy. Florida International has come back to win after being down at half against South Alabama 3 times since 1998.
  • At least you keep showing up. Florida International has an average margin of victory of 8 over South Alabama in 10 wins since 1982.
  • The Florida International assist leader (Gaby Belardo) has more assists than the South Alabama assist leader (Freddie Goldstein).
