Down on the Southside the UAB Blazers are getting ready to
kickoff C-USA play this weekend when they host Florida Atlantic on Saturday afternoon
at 2:00 p.m. in Legion Field.
The Blazers are coming off of another disappointing non-conference showing after getting hammered (52-24) at Vanderbilt last weekend dropping their record to (1-3) overall. But 2nd year head coach Garrick McGee thinks those tough non-conference games at LSU and Vanderbilt the past few weeks will help his team in conference play.
"We've had a really physical non-conference schedule," McGee said on Monday.
"We pride ourselves on being the team in conference USA that's not going to spread out and fast break and try to tick everybody. We want to play traditional hard-nosed tough football."
Both the Blazers and the Owls enter Saturday's game with just one victory.
