The Blazers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 conference games. The Thundering Herd are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games after allowing more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game and 7-21 ATS in their last 28 games as a home favorite.

Marshall comes into this game on a 4-game wining streak, however, they haven’t played the toughest of competition and this is still a team that has struggled at times this season in losses against East Carolina & Middle Tennessee. UAB has been solid defensively this season, especially against opposing rushing attacks as they rank 24th in rushing defense, and as I think the Blazers will be able to force Grant Wells in making a few turnovers, I think UAB keeps this one close and at worst, cover with the points. Good Luck!
