We have reached week eight of the college football season, and most teams are now playing the conference portion of their schedule.
One of this games this weekend is a Conference USA showdown at Jerry Richardson Stadium.
The University of Alabama-Birmingham Blazers make the trip to Charlotte to take on the 49ers. This is the first meeting ever between the two teams.
This is the first year back for the UAB Blazers football team after is was cut a few years ago amid some budget cuts.
They got some pretty big donations and it allowed the Blazers football team to come back this year. Most people believed this would be a rebuild year for the team, but so far that hasn’t been the case.
They come into this game with a 4-2 record including winning their last two games. In both of those games they came in as underdogs and left as the victorious team.
For the Blazers it’s all come down to the offensive side of the field. They come into this game averaging 31.7 points and almost 400 yards per game.
Of those 400 yards 212 of those come from the ground. I would look for them to really try and pound the rock in this game.
I think they will try to control the time of possession in this game. If they can control the time of possession they should have no issues winning this game.
The Charlotte 49ers are still trying to make the transition from the FCS level to the FBS level and it has been really rough on the team, and they aren’t getting the results they are hoping for on the field just yet.
They come into this game with an 0-7 record, and it is probably going to be very hard for this team to find a way to win a game.
This game might be the best chance for them to get a win, but it’s still going to be a very uphill battle to pull the upset in this game.
For the 49ers the offense has struggled, and that has led to the downfall of this team so far this year. They come into this game only averaging 13 points per game.
To win this game the offense is going to need to find a way to get something going early. If the offense can’t get anything going it’s going to be another long afternoon of football for this team.
