UAB (6-1) vs. UTEP (0-7) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
How much would UTEP like to break its brutal losing streak by beating the leader in the Conference USA race?
How much would UTEP like to beat anyone?
The Miners really are playing better, but the close losses are still losses. They’re not getting annihilated like they were last year, but they still can’t get over the hump.
Meanwhile, UAB has been brilliant. There’s the brutal loss to Coastal Carolina early in the season to screw things up, but it’s won five straight after that helped by a defense that’s putting the clamps down on everyone.
UTEP just doesn’t have the offense to deal with this Blazer D.
The Miners don’t have a passing game, they’re still turning the ball over too much, and the lines aren’t able to hold up.
UAB is third in the nation in third down conversions and aren’t allowing much of anything downfield. They won’t have to do too much to put this way. The Blazers will get up 10-0 in the first half, and the D will take care of the rest.
