Contrarian Crusher - Rickenbach CFB Rotation #367 Saturday 8* UAB Blazers (+) @ Tennessee Volunteers @ 7 ET - UAB has been a team on the rise under head coach Bill Clark. They won 2 games the year before he arrived and have since recorded seasons of 6 wins, 8 wins, and 11 wins in succession. Now the Blazers are already 6-1 this season plus enter this game off a bye week. That said, the set up here is perfect because they are catching Tennessee off a massive upset win over South Carolina. The Volunteers were a home dog in that game and yet won the game by a 20 point margin. Certainly it is important to note that UAB has played a very weak schedule this season and, as we all know, it is not easy for the schools from weaker conferences when they travel to take on an SEC foe. However, this does not change the fact that the Blazers have won 17 of their last 21 games and are a team loaded with confidence as a result. They full believe (and expect) that they can go into Knoxville, TN and walk out a winner. Now that is certainly easier said than done but with the line moving even higher here on the Vols, I have no hesitation in backing a very dangerous underdog. Tennessee is off back to back huge SEC games at Alabama and then hosting the Gamecocks for the upset. Also, the Volunteers have another SEC game (at Kentucky) on deck. The Vols are an ugly 2-11 ATS when they face a non-conference opponent off a SU win by a double digit margin. The Volunteers are 1-8 ATS as non-conference favorites of 11.5 points or more. Also, here are a pair of perfect angles in play here! Tennessee is 0-11 ATS when facing an opponent that is off B2B SU/ATS wins. Also, the Volunteers are 0-9 ATS when off a SU win by 14.5 points or more. That puts this one in a 20-0 ATS spot for backing the Blazers! 8* UAB
