USA TODAY Sports

The Alabama-Birmingham Blazers were expected to do little in the first season back from dropping football for a few years but the team has fashioned a 3-2 record following a 23-22 victory versus the visiting Louisiana Tech Bulldogs Saturday as a 9.5 point underdog. Both teams finished with about 360 yards with Louisiana Tech botching two extra points while UAB missed one as well. Blazers  quarterback AJ Erdely gave the offense a short passing game where he completed 21-32 for 188 yards an no mistakes with top receiver Andre Wilson recording eight receptions for 105 yards. Spencer Brown was Alabama-Birmingham’s workhorse on the ground with 168 yards on 26 carries including an eleven yard scoring burst.  

Under is 5-0-1 in MTSU last 6 games overall and over is 3-0-1 in MTSU last 4 games in October and MTSU are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up win. UAB are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 conference games and UAB are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and over is 8-1 in UAB last 9 games following a straight up win. 

Right now I’ll take the points but I think I need at least a touchdown to feel comfortable…
