Louisiana at UAB: Three things to know

  1. The Alabama-Birmingham defense has been particularly good against the pass. The Blazers rank fifth in FBS in yielding just 154.2 passing yards per game. UAB has played a couple of bottom-third passing teams in building that resume, but the Blazers also held South Alabama to 168 yards on 14-for-29 passing attempts. The UAB defense has logged 21 pass break-ups, five picks, 15 sacks and seven forced fumbles.
  2. Louisiana QB Levi Lewis has thus far been a shadow of what he was in 2019 when he threw 26 touchdown passes against just four interceptions. To be fair, the senior signal-caller has faced a tough slate, and his results have been feast (averaging 284.5 passing yards against Georgia State and Georgia Southern) or famine (165.5 vs. Iowa State, Coastal Carolina).
  3. The UAB defense has been particularly strong at Legion Field over recent years. The Blazers allowed Central Arkansas to tally 35 points in a 45-35 win, but in that game, UCA scored two garbage-time TDs, one defensive TD, and two scores after drives of fewer than 20 yards. Dating to the beginning of the 2018 season, the Blazers have allowed just 14.7 points per game on their home turf.

Prediction

UAB 28, Louisiana 24

Money line (ML)

ULL has played in three straight one-possession games. The Cajuns are coming off a hard-fought 30-27 loss to Coastal Carolina, and that defeat was on the heels of wins against Georgia State (34-31) and Georgia Southern (20-18). Friday’s battle in Birmingham certainly has solid potential to land in that one-score area, but the point-and-a-half is worth the savings on price, so PASS ON MONEY LINE ACTION.

Against the spread (ATS)

Expect some separation early, with UAB taking control late. A talented ULL squad can keep the game close over the middle quarters. Look for the Blazers defense to register a key takeaway or simply grind out some field-position advantage late in the game. BACK THE BLAZERS -1.5 (-110).

Over/Under (O/U)

THE LEAN IS WITH THE OVER 49.5 (-115) in what figures as a 3-4 TD game on each side with an above-average probability of overtime.
