UAB at Charlotte

Hey guys and gals! I’m making the trip up to Charlotte this weekend. My bet is we’ll see a single digit game and whoever has the fewest turnovers will win.

If we keep it within single digits, we should throw a parade honoring Judy Rose and Lambert.

I think you swat us away a easily as a dragon does a hobbit that is stealing from him. I hope we can keep it close for a while but you guys are looking great. Congrats on the triumphant return.

Thanks for the optimism but we are talking about the same team that lost to Georgia State 28-0 at home.

Now let’s not go that far. You can still #FireJudy

Post this over on the CUSA board, you’ll get the remaining 75 needed very easily.

Thanks for the encouragement. You just predicted we’ll play our best game of the year.

UAB opens at -5 1/2 (already jumped to -7 1/2)

Athlon’s prediction:

[Quote]UAB at Charlotte

The ball is bouncing the right way for UAB in 2017; the Blazers have won one game by seven points and two others by a combined three points. At 4–2, they need only two more wins to reach bowl eligibility in their first season back after a two-year hiatus.

[Quote]UAB (4-2, 2-1 CUSA) vs. Charlotte (0-7, 0-3 CUSA)
5:30 p.m. CT, Saturday
[B]Where: [/B]McColl-Richardson Field, Charlotte, N.C.
[B]TV: [/B]beIN Sports
[B]Series:[/B] First meeting.
[B]Spread: [/B]UAB by 7.
SUPER STAT OF THE WEEK: UAB’s first three CUSA games have been decided by a total of six points.

[B]Joe says: [/B]Another week; another first for the Magic Dragons. This time, UAB is favored in a game against an FBS opponent for the first time this season. Somehow the Southside Green is two wins away from bowl eligibility. Secure a victory this week, and bowl eligibility seems all but certain. UAB hasn’t won three straight games since 2009. Guess who was the quarterback then? That’s right, Mr. Joe Webb, who capped off that three-game streak with 430 yards of total offense in a 31-21 victory against Memphis. UAB needs to be playing Memphis every year. In the meantime, it gets teams like Charlotte, which can still beat a first-year team on its worst day, but shouldn’t really have a chance home or away. Charlotte can’t stop anybody, and it’s ranked 110th in turnover margin with 11 interceptions. Blazers avoid the letdown.

[B]Joe’s pick:[/B] UAB 35, Charlotte 21

[B]Pro says:[/B] Charlotte is 0-7 this season after going 4-8 last season and no one is talking about it. Their offense is only averaging 124 yards per game passing and their pass defense has already allowed 11 touchdown passes. I’d like to say there is hope, but after this loss the weakest team left on the schedule is Old Dominion, which Charlotte lost to last season 52-17.

[B]Pro’s pick: [/B]UAB 34, Charlotte 23[/QUOTE] Joe vs The Pro: College Football Picks (Oct 19, 2017) Riding high off big wins, UAB knows it can’t have letdown against Charlotte

clt hopes this is rock bottom for our fb team.

Underdog Dynasty prediction:

[Quote]UAB at Charlotte (UAB -7.5 6:30 PM ET, beIn Sports)

As good as UAB has performed this season they are still looking for their first road win (lost to Ball State and North Texas). In the opener UAB played an overmatched Alabama A&M team and it took a while for the Blazers to create separation. We could see a similar performance where the Blazers start slow but pull away in the second half as their style of play tends to allow overmatched teams to hang around. Spencer Brown should have another great game as the 49ers will be without their best defender Karrington King.

FWIW, it took GA State 13 FBS home games before they got their first FBS home win. UAB will be our 13th FBS home game.
