This game pits Conference USA West rivals against each other with at least a share of 1st place on the line.
The last time these teams met, UAB narrowly came away with a 23-22 win. Louisiana Tech will be looking to prove they are the team to beat in the conference and with a strong home performance they can do just that.
UAB earned their third win of the season last week when they defeated the Charlotte 49ers by a score of 28-7. This was their first conference game of the season and was also a game they controlled from start to finish. The Blazers have a much tougher test now as they travel to Louisiana to take on a Bulldogs team that put a fight with LSU just a few weeks ago.
The Blazers have leaned toward running the ball this year, as they have averaged 239.5 yards per game. This ranks 22nd in the nation and will be the key to controlling the clock if they can manage to get the lead early.
The most impressive stat about the UAB defense so far is their pass defense. Opponents are only throwing for an average of 141 yards per game. This ranks 3rd in the country. If the Blazers continue to play at this level, they should start their conference play 2-0.
Louisiana Tech Bulldogs
Louisiana Tech struggled in last weeks’ game, but ended up with a win over North Texas, 29-27. This game also kicked off their conference schedule on a high note.
The Bulldogs return home for just the second time this season, in hopes of avoiding an upset to conference rival, UAB. Considering they hung around with LSU a few weeks ago, they should be confident going into their Conference USA schedule.
The Bulldogs have shown that they prefer to throw the ball this year.
They average 299 passing yards per game, but will run into one of the top three passing defenses in this match-up. The key for the Bulldogs offensively is to try an establish a ground game to open up their passing offense against the Blazers defense.
Louisiana Tech’s defense has played pretty good this season. Even against LSU they had only allowed 24 points up until the fourth quarter.
If they can play with the same intensity that they did against the Tigers through the first three quarters, they should come away with a win.
