2005 FIU Golden Panthers football team

The 2005 FIU Golden Panthers football team represented Florida International University in the 2005 NCAA Division I-A football season as a member of the Sun Belt Conference (SBC). The Panthers were led by head coach Don Strock in his fourth season and finished with a record of five wins and six losses. However, in 2008, the NCAA Division I Committee on Infractions found major violations within the football program and as such vacated all of the Panthers' five wins from the 2005 season, changing their official record to 0–6.[1][2][3]
