The UAB Blazers and Southern Miss Golden Eagles face off on Saturday in a Conference USA college football showdown at Roberts Stadium. When these two teams last faced off in 2019, Southern Miss came away with the 37-2 victory. 

UAB has played well to start the season sitting with a 4-2 record overall. The two losses came against Georgia and Liberty. In the last game against Florida Atlantic, the defense was strong, giving up only 14 points, and that led to the victory. UAB is averaging 24.8 points while the defense is giving up 22.1 points per game. UAB is led under center by Dylan Hopkins and he has thrown for 826 yards, nine touchdowns, and two interceptions. In the backfield, DeWayne McBridge and Jermaine Brown have been the top rushers, both going over 370 yards. UAB for the most part has a good defense, and in this game, the defense needs to be good to take the pressure off the defense. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Southern Miss Golden Eagles who sit with a 1-5 record and they are also 1-5 against the spread. In the last game against UTEP, Southern Miss could only manage 13 points, and two games ago against Rice, the offense only scored 19 points. Southern Miss is averaging only 16.5 points while the defense is giving up 27.5 points per game. One big issue for Southern MIss is they can’t seem to find a solid quarterback. Jake Lange got the start in the last game, and he has thrown for 543 yards, three touchdowns, and four interceptions. The lead running back for Southern Miss is Frank Gore Jr and he has rushed for 403 yards and one touchdown.
