We have reached week three of the college football season which means there are a lot of nonconference showdowns this weekend. That is the case when the Tulane Green Wave make the trip to Birmingham to take on the UAB Blazers.
The Green Wave have won the last two games played between the two teams with the last meeting taking place in 2012.
Tulane Green Wave
After a disapointing opening weekend loss against Wake Forest the Green Wave bounced back in a big way against Nicholls State, a team that had beat the Kansas Jayhawks the week before.
The offense was much better in the second game led by Jonathan Banks who has done a good job of taking care of the ball this year.
He has thrown for 471 yards. three touchdowns, and zero interceptions. Against Nicholls State has thrown for 190 yards and a touchdown. Last year he had a problem throwing interceptions so it’s going to be key in this game that he continues to take care of the football.
Some of the young wide recievers also need to step up in this game. Three recievers are out with season ending injuries and that is going to hurt this team as they move forward.
To win this game the offense is going to need to play their best game of the season.
On the other side of this matchup is the UAB Blazers who started off the season with a big win but did not perform well in their last game which was surprising because they were huge favorites.
Against Coastal Carolina they came in as 8.5 point favorites but the defense struggled letting them move up and down the field and that led to a 47-24 loss.
The Blazers are a run first team and it has shown rushing for 286.5 yards per game. The quarterback is still a key part of this offense but if they aren’t running the ball well first their offense really has problems getting off the gorund.
On the defensive side of the ball the rush defense has actually been good but the secondary has really struggled. In this game the secondary needs to try and slow down the pass rush of the Green Wave early on.
