I am going to try and avoid editorials about a 2-8 team that has already hired and fired their coach being invited to a bowl game.
On the flip side, UAB gets a Power 5 opponent to potentially beat up on and that is kind of interesting.
The Blazers are the favourite here. I just hope they do not fall flat.
As alluded to, Wl Muschamp was fired a few weeks back for not being able to keep South Carolina on the tracks. Now it is up to Shane Beamer to right the ship.
It is not totally clear how the change will impact things right away. South Carolina won only two games this season and none since October 17th. That is a long stretch.
Offense has been a challenge this season. In their last three losses the Gamecocks have not been able to score even 20 points in the game. Beamer probably has some thoughts there but it is hard to implement significant change quickly on offense.
The defense has been worse by comparison. They are giving up 36ppg and have made some pretty lame teams looks pretty good.
UAB are the Conference USA champs. They just beat Marshall in the title game, capping another successful regular season for the Blazers.
The Blazers played one Power 5 opponent this year, losing 31-14 to Miami. South Carolina is not nearly as good and there is good reason the Blazers are favoured.
UAB is one of the best defensive teams in the nation and has been ever since they reincarnated the program. They only give up 21ppg.
They are not dynamic on offense and that could be where South Carolina keeps it close. UAB does have balance though, averaging 200ypg on the ground and 201ype through the air.
This is a great spot for UAB to help building their program. Even though South Carolina is down, beating an SEC team still gets the attention of others.

This is a case where the teams I am rooting for is also the team that it makes sense to back. That is not always the case when you have Power 5 vs Group of 5 matchups
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: UAB -7
We will know pretty early on whether UAB has the physicality to match up with South Carolina. They might have some moments where will see the Gamecocks be “strong” but UAB is very well coached and will have schematic advantages in some key spots. They are not going to trounce South Carolina but they will have a very solid win.
