UAB getting ready for in-state rival Troy

Posted: Updated:

There's a different feeling down on the Southside; it's game week for the Blazers.

Year two of the Garrick McGee era gets underway this Saturday versus in-state rival Troy.

The Blazer opened the Garrick McGee era a year ago with a (29-39) loss to the Trojans. At the time McGee didn't fully understand the rivalry with Troy. "Going into our second year we do understand this is a rivalry game," McGee said on Monday.    

Senior Center Billy Autrey needs no reminder about the rivalry with Troy "It's big, we've lost to them the last two years," Autrey said. "Personally I'm not a big fan of them, and we want to beat them. They're in-state rivals and we just want to start the season off right."

The Blazers kickoff of the season on Saturday, August 31st  at 6 p.m. at Troy's Veterans Memorial Stadium.
