The UAB Blazers visit Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tennessee on Saturday to play the Tennessee Volunteers. UAB improved to 6-1 on the season following its 38-14 victory over the Old Dominion Monarchs last week and the Blazers enjoyed a bye week this week to prepare for their tough matchup with Tennessee. Jermaine Brown rushed for 116 yards and one touchdown in the win.

Tyler Johnston III has thrown for 1,763 yards, 15 touchdowns and 10 interceptions for UAB. Spencer Brown leads the Blazers in rushing with 262 yards and three touchdowns, while Austin Watkins is the leading receiver with 655 yards and five touchdowns. The leading tackler for UAB is Kristopher Moll with 53. 

Tennessee defeated South Carolina on Saturday 41-21. The win improved the Volunteers record to 3-5. Jauan Jennings and Marquez Callaway scored two touchdowns apiece and the Volunteers passed for 351 yards even though starting quarterback Brian Maurer did not play. The Vols improved to 2-3 in SEC play. 

Tennessee quarterback Jarrett Guarantano has passed for 1,140 yards, 10 touchdowns and four interceptions. The leading rusher for the Volunteers is Ty Chandler with 484 yards and two touchdowns. Jauan Jennings leads the Vols in receiving with 652 yards and seven touchdowns. Theo Jackson leads the Volunteers in tackles with 45.

UAB is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 on the road

The OVER has cashed in 3 of the Blazers last 4 on grass

Tennessee is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 non-SEC games

The OVER has cashed in 5 of the Volunteers last 7 at home

Although the Volunteers will win this outright at home, the tough defense of UAB will keep it close enough for the Blazers to cover the number. UAB has covered the number in each of the last 4 meetings overall and each of the last 4 played in Tennessee. The Volunteers have failed to cover 4 of the last 5 non-SEC games. Final Score Prediction, Tennessee Volunteers win but fall short ATS 34-27

David’s Pick UAB Blazers +13
