A spokesperson for Florida Atlantic is claiming that coach Lane Kiffin was “just joking” when he tweeted Friday night about a late intentional safety impacting the betting result in the Owls’ victory over Marshall.

Florida Atlantic, which closed as a 6.5-point favorite, owned a 30-23 lead with 14 seconds remaining when Kiffin opted to concede a safety rather than risking a blocked punt deep inside the Owls' territory.

Kiffin tweeted after the game:

Didn't want to cover because of too much rat poison #keptuwatching #5-0 #cometothefau #playersgetweekendoff https://twitter.com/lilmook4real/status/926626418993385472 …

Kiffin told reporters after the game that a clock-management miscalculation resulted in the call.

Kiffin's mention of rat poison in his tweet was in reference to Alabama coach Nick Saban's past comments about media praise being like "rat poison" to his players' focus.
