It had been nearly two years. After an 0-5 2020 campaign, the FIU Panther Football Team finally earned their first win against the Long Island U Sharks.

FIU ultimately fell in overtime on that warm Miami night, but showed their mettle against a team at their own level. Here are some of the highlights.
