The UAB Blazers and the Texas A&M Aggies meet in a week 12 college football matchup from Kyle Field in College Station, Texas on Saturday evening.

The UAB Blazers will look for a huge road win to add to their current 8 game winning streak after escaping with a 26-23 overtime win over Southern Mississippi in their last outing. A.J. Erdely has thrown for 1,449 yards, 7 touchdowns and 6 interceptions on 57.3% passing while Spencer Brown leads the Blazers in rushing with 916 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns this season. Xavier Ubosi leads UAB with 505 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns while Andre Wilson has 345 receiving yards and Collin Lisa has a team-high 25 catches for 338 receiving yards this season. As a team, UAB is averaging 433.4 yards of total offense and 33.1 points per game while also being a tough nut to crack on defense, sitting 2nd in the nation in terms of total yardage against with 260.8 yards against per game along with just 13.2 points against per game, good for 4th in FBS.

The Texas A&M Aggies will look to build some momentum after a 38-24 win over Ole Miss in their last outing. Kellen Mond has thrown for 2,488 yards, 15 touchdowns and 8 interceptions on 59.4% passing while Trayveon Williams leads the Aggies in rushing with 1,159 yards and 11 touchdowns this season. Jace Sternberger leads the Aggies with 38 catches for 644 yards and 6 touchdowns while Camron Buckley has 31 grabs for 442 yards and Quartney Davis added 35 catches for 408 yards and 5 touchdowns this season. As a team, Texas A&M is averaging 462.5 yards of total offense and 30.1 points per game this season. The Aggies are also tough against the run, allowing just 77.8 rushing yards per game this season, good for the 3rd-fewest in FBS this season.

UAB is 19-7-1 ATS in their last 27 games overall and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games against the SEC. Texas A&M is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 home games.

Erdely may not go for UAB, and if he doesn't it may be a bit of an issue, but I'm still not going to pass up these kinds of points with UAB. The Blazers have won back-to-back games, and while they were against UTSA and Southern Miss, the Blazers have still been getting the job done when taking a step up in competition. Texas A&M is a solid team but I just can't pass up this many points.
