Rickenbach CFB Rotation #175 Saturday 8* UAB Blazers (+) @ Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles @ 3:30 ET - I used UAB last week and they got embarrassed at Tennessee but it was a deceiving final score. The Blazers were only outgained by 65 yards but they lost 30-7 because they were done in by turnovers. The point is that UAB was hardly outgained by an SEC team on the road last week and yet now they're getting more than a TD back in action against a CUSA team. While the Golden Eagles do rank an edge here, albeit slight, in terms of offense note that the defensive edge lies with the Blazers in a big way. Southern Miss has allowed nearly 30 points per game this season while UAB ranks 5th in the nation in defense based on yardage allowed. Look for the Eagles to get caught still feeling a little too good about themselves. They got a big win against a win-less Rice team two weeks ago and then had a bye week last week. Before the big win over the Owls, Southern Miss had allowed an average of 35.7 points per game in their 6 preceding games. The better defense gives the Blazers a great shot at the upset here and certainly the points are a high value play the way I am forecasting this one! Blazers are ticked off after that loss to the Volunteers followed their bye week. 8* UAB
