We have ourselves a possible rematch coming next weekend for the Conference USA title, as the UAB Blazers (9-2)) head to Floyd Stadium to face the Blue Raiders (7-4) at 3 p.m ET on Saturday.
With a win and an FIU loss to Marshall this weekend, the Blue Raiders will find themselves facing UAB again next weekend for a Conference Championship. The Herd are -3 point favorites over FIU, and Middle Tennessee comes into their final home game of the campaign as +3 point dogs to the Blazers.
UAB and Middle Tenessee faced SEC opponents last weekend, and each came away expected losses. Both teams were exact +17 point underdogs, although the Blue Raiders covered their game against Kentucky, 35 – 23, while the Blazers fell to Texas A&M 41- 20.
The Blazers have already secured their path to the C-USA title game and have clinched the West Division crown with their perfect 7 – 0 record.
The Blazers’ 8-game win streak was snapped last weekend against Texas A&M, but it doesn’t change the fact that a non-conference SEC loss didn’t do any damage towards this year’s run to the conference title game next weekend..
While the Blue Raiders need a win and some help to force a rematch between these two
While that is on the line, the UAB Blazers are still looking to clinch home field for the title game, so they too will be keeping an eye on that Marshall / FIU affair. The Blazers hold their own fate, in only their second year back in FBS football.
UAB managed to make a bowl appearance in their first season back in Division 1 last year, and that 8 – 4 record included a win over Middle Tennesee, 25 – 23 in mid-October.
Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders
The Blue Raiders are 4 – 0 at home and hoping Senior Day provides an all-important 5th home win of the season. A win this weekend would be the first of two steps needed to put the Blue Raiders into the Conference USA Championship Game next weekend.
A home loss would ensure that Middle Tennessee will be watching FIU play UAB next weekend, and the Blue Raiders will know if they even have a chance to do it because the Marshall FIU game is at noon ET. Should FIU go on to win, the meaning of this game will change dramatically, because FIU will go on to the title game with a win, regardless if Middle Tennessee takes down UAB.
Senior QB Brent Stockstill will be having an emotional day, as his father and family will all be there to thank him for the years with the program. Stockstill’s father is obviously the head coach of this team, and his numbers speak for themselves.
Last weekend alone against Kentucky, Stockstill completed 30 of his 33 passing attempts, raising his season completion percentage to 70.7%. I am sorry but that is ridiculous, and I mean that in the best way possible. Stockstill’s arm has carried this team to the 55th ranked passing offense in the nation, which doesn’t scream wow, but it doesn’t really show the impact he has had all season long.
Stockstill has accumulated 11,531 passing yards in his Blue Raider career and certainly has the potential to over 12,000 with this, a bowl game, and a possible C-USA title game appearance to boot.

Free Week 13 NCAA Football Pick
I suggest waiting to see how the Marshall / FIU is going before throwing your hard-earned greenbacks towards a bet in this game. UAB will likely still need to win to make sure the title game is playing in Birmingham, so I expect them to come out of the gate emotional too.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: The UAB Blazers are favored at -3, with a 51 showing on the total Free ATS or O/U final score pick provided below!
The Blazers defense has been outstanding all season long, and a loss to A&M last weekend really shouldn’t get you down in this team. UAB will be ready to go, and Brent Stockstill is certainly not going to go out without a fight for the Blue Raiders.
This total should climb up as the week goes on, but at 51, I see the Over as the play, regardless of the UAB defense being extremely respectable all season long for the most part.
The Over 51 is your 4* Play of the Day, expeciting someone to hit 30, if not both of them.
