Rice (0-5) vs. UAB (3-1) Game Preview

“Go to the bank!” Today’s top pick of the day just released

What’s Going To Happen

Okay, enough of that.

UAB does this once in a while.

Last year it didn’t show up against Coastal Carolina in a blowout loss, and it went on to win 11 games with a bowl game and a Conference USA title. The 2017 team did the same thing, dropping a game to a Charlotte team that didn’t come up with another win all season long.

So is the loss last week to WKU just a blip? Yeah.

Rice doesn’t score enough, its offense is the third-worst in college football, and it can’t seem to create the any key breaks at the right moments.

However it’s been plucky. The defense has battled hard, but the O hasn’t been able to come through in key moments. But at home, the UAB defense that dominates with big plays in the backfield, will stuff the Owl ground game cold. There won’t be enough of a passing attack to keep up once the Blazers get up early.

A few UAB mistakes will keep this from being a total blowout, but the team will get its mojo back as a part of a nice run of wins over mediocre teams.
