Liberty @ UAB
Current Records: Liberty 3-1; UAB 3-1
What to Know
After three games on the road, the UAB Blazers are heading back home. They will take on the Liberty Flames at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday at Protective Stadium. The Blazers should still be riding high after a victory, while Liberty will be looking to get back in the win column.
UAB beat the Tulane Green Wave 28-21 last week. The squad ran away with 21 points in the first half and mostly just sat on those in the second to pick up the win.
Meanwhile, Liberty was close but no cigar last Friday as they fell 24-21 to the Syracuse Orange. The losing side was boosted by QB Malik Willis, who passed for three TDs and 205 yards on 19 attempts in addition to picking up 49 yards on the ground.
This next contest is expected to be close, with UAB going off at just a 1.5-point favorite. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (2-0), so they might be worth a quick bet.
UAB’s victory brought them up to 3-1 while the Flames’ loss pulled them down to an identical 3-1. Two defensive stats to keep an eye on: The Blazers are 237th worst in the nation in passing touchdowns allowed, with ten on the season. Liberty has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the game with the 142nd most rushing touchdowns allowed in the nation, having given up five on the season. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
