The Alabama-Birmingham Blazers host the North Texas Mean Green at Legion Field in Saturday action.
The North Texas Mean Green struggled to get stops in a 49-24 road loss to Indiana in a week six tilt. The Hoosiers oopened up leads of 21-7 and 42-10 and were never challenged. Indy approached almost 600 yards while UNT countered with 348 yards but didn't excel at anything. Antoinne Jimmerson was the Mean Green's best option on the ground with 83 yards on 12 carries while Dajon Williams threw for 205 yards with three touchdowns and two picks but the offense lacked the explosiveness needed to match the Hoosiers.

The Alabama-Birmingham Blazers rallied from an early 13 point deficit to edge Western Kentucky 42-39 on the road as a ten point underdog. This was all about offense and scoring with the Blazers rolling up nearly 600 yards split between the ground and air which overcame another 300+ yard passing day from the Hilltoppers Brandon Doughty. ordan Howard paced UAB on the ground with 183 yards on 34 carries with a pair of trips to the endzone while DJ Vinson added 76 yards. Cody Clements was nearly perfect through the air on a 22-25 performance for 300 yards with a pair of touchdowns and an interception with Josh McGee hauling in a 75 yard scoring pass.
From watching both teams I believe Alabama-Birmingham has improved while North Texas might be a half step back from 2013. I don't really like the spot for the Mean Green and right now will give the points so please check back later in the week...
