UAB @ Tulane
Current Records: UAB 2-1; Tulane 1-2
What to Know
The UAB Blazers are staying on the road Saturday to face off against the Tulane Green Wave at 8 p.m. ET Sept. 25 at Benson Field at Yulman Stadium. The Blazers should still be feeling good after a big win, while Tulane will be looking to get back in the win column.
You’re bound to get a positive result if you outscore your opponent every quarter, and that’s exactly how it played out for UAB last week. They were the clear victors by a 40-6 margin over the North Texas Mean Green. With UAB ahead 30 to nothing at the half, the game was all but over already.
Meanwhile,’s it’s hard to picture a worse defeat than the 61-21 bruising that Tulane suffered against the Ole Miss Rebels last week. The last quarter was a mere formality since it was already 61-21 by the third quarter. Tulane’s loss came about despite a quality game from QB Michael Pratt, who passed for two TDs and 166 yards on 18 attempts in addition to picking up 37 yards on the ground.
UAB is expected to lose this next one by 3. If their 2-0 record against the spread is anything to go by, the prospects look good for bets placed on them.
The Blazers are now 2-1 while the Green Wave sit at a mirror-image 1-2. Two defensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: UAB is 215th worst in the nation in passing touchdowns allowed, with seven on the season. Tulane has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the contest with the 238th most touchdowns allowed in the nation, having given up 16 on the season. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
