The Eagles are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Blazers are 20-8-2 ATS in their last 30 home games and 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 6-2 in Eagles last 8 games on fieldturf. The under is 4-0 in Blazers last 4 games in September.

There's a possible letdown factor here for the Georgia Southern Eagles after they just upset Nebraska on the road last week. The UAB Blazers are the more physical team here, and they've been money against the spread over the years, especially on their home field. Thick line, but I'm not going to bet against UAB, with Georgia Southern entering this matchup fat and happy.
