The loss broke an 8-game winning streak for the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. Louisiana Tech is averaging a healthy 457 yards per game and is giving up 392. UAB is averaging 370 yards and giving up 267.

UAB also lost its game last week, and the offense did not score for the first time this season. UAB was also leading the league in defensive yards allowed going into that game but gave up 325 to Southern Miss.

Justin Henderson has run for 799 yards and has 15 of the team's 25 rushing touchdowns. Three players have around 500 yards each receiving.

UAB has won the last two games between these teams, but Louisiana Tech leads the series 5-2.

 The Blazers are able to come into the game here with a better offensive unit. However, the unit will be tested as Louisiana Tech does have a good defense that can take care of the opponent at times. That allows the Blazers to have some problems in this game as the defense of Louisiana Tech wins the game. Final Score Prediction, Louisiana Tech Bulldogs win 24-21.
