The UAB Blazers will look to finish their shortened season on a high note this Friday, as they travel to Joan C. Edwards Stadium in Huntington, West Virginia for a matchup with the Marshall Thundering Herd.
Marshall will also be hungry to get back into action on Friday, as they are looking to avenge one of the biggest shock losses in college football in 2020 last time out which was their 20-0 loss against the Rice Owls who nobody saw coming.
UAB were solid defensively in their last game against the Owls only allowing them to gain 232 total yards, but they also were not themselves on offense only putting up 21 total points in a game they should have won handily given the excellent defensive performance.
That is how the UAB Blazers have been getting the job done this year, though, as this defense has stepped up often during the 2020 season and they will need to do that again against Marshall, as the Thundering Herd have an outstanding defense and this Blazers team may find it difficult to put points up on the board.
Marshall Thundering Herd
The Thundering Herd were solid all year going undefeated before that game against the Rice Owls and now they get a trappy type game against a UAB team who has been up and down this year. With the low scoring nature that this game is likely to have I would think junior RB Brenden Knox will be an important piece here because if he can get rolling it will open up enough for the rest of this Marshall Thundering Herd offense and that should put them in a good spot to get the job done here.

The UAB Blazers have an awful record going to Marshall and I do not see that changing here, as I can see Marshall bouncing back off of that bitterly disappointing game against Rice by getting the running game going and tiring this UAB defense out. I can also see the Marshall run defense have an excellent game here and it will be a long game for UAB if they can’t put some rushing yards up here.
