The Cowboys will travel to Boca Raton to play the second game of the 2005 season, the report said. In return, Florida Atlantic will play nonconference games at Boone Pickens Stadium in 2006 and 2007.
"They have agreed to it," FAU Athletic Director Craig Angelos told the Sun-Sentinel. "But until you see a contract, anything can happen."
OSU Athletic Director Harry Birdwell could not be reached to confirm the Sun-Sentinel report.
The Owls are scheduled to open the 2005 season Sept. 3 at Kansas, and play Oklahoma State the next Saturday. Florida Atlantic also will play Cincinnati in 2005.
"We want to play the best," Angelos said.
Florida Atlantic, in the first year of a two-year transition from NCAA Division I-AA to I-A, is 5-0 this season (winning five consecutive road games). The Owls are scheduled to play Louisiana-Monroe in their first home of the season this Saturday in Fort Lauderdale.
"We're getting a lot more interest now that we are going to [Division] I-A," Angelos said in the Sun-Sentinel article.
