The UAB Blazers and Florida Atlantic Owls face off on Saturday in a Conference USA college football showdown at FAU Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2021 it was UAB that secured the 31-14 victory. 

The UAB Blazers come into this game with a 4-3 record overall but they were defeated in the last game. UAB’s offense only scored 17 points against Western Kentucky and zero points in the second half. Quarterback Jacob Zeno completed 3 of his 10 passes for 33 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. UAB is averaging 32 points per game while their defense is giving up 17.7 points per game. The defense is ranked 18th in college football, but in this game, they are going to need a lot better quarterback play. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Florida Atlantic Owls who sit with a 3-5 record overall and they have gone 3-5 against the spread. In the last game against UTEP, the offense scored 21 points, but they gave up 24 points. The Owls were outscored 10-7 in the 4th quarter and that led to the three-point defeat. The Owls are averaging 28.6 points while their defense is giving up 26.8 points per game. Under center for Florida Atlantic is N’Kosi Perry and in the last game, he completed 12 of his 20 passes for 164 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions. 

UAB is 13-4-1 against the spread in their last 18 games against a team with a losing record. FAU is 2-5 against the spread in their last seven home games. The over is 7-1 in the last eight meetings played between UAB and FAU. The over is 4-0 in the last four meetings at Florida Atlantic. 

UAB is a good defensive team and they are giving up 17.7 points per game. I also expect the offense to be a little better in this game for the Blazers, and Zeno is going to be better here. Zeno only completed three passes in the last game, but he’s better than those numbers. UAB is going to score at least 27 points here, and they are going to win by at least seven points.
