UAB (4-1) vs. Rice (1-5) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
If UAB is the real deal, it takes this game down without working all that hard.
It’s been great since the stunning loss to Coastal Carolina, rolling through Tulane, Charlotte and Louisiana Tech to get back into the groove it found over the second half of last year. But can the consistency be there?
Rice might be struggling, but it can pound the ball and control the game – at least for a little bit.
The Owl defense hasn’t been able to hold down any offense outside of the truly weak and sad – like UTSA’s last week. Everyone else is getting fat on the Rice pass defense.
QB AJ Erdely was accurate against Charlotte, but he has failed to hit half of his passes in three of the last four games. The running game has been able to handle the work, and the defense has been terrific – the pass rush is amazing.
The Blazers will win on the lines.
