Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders vs UAB Blazers Predictions 10/8/2022


As they came off a road loss to Rice last week, UAB alternated victories and defeats in their first four games of the season. After the defeat, the Blazers’ record fell to 2-2 overall and 0-1 in conference play.


UAB held a 17-7 halftime advantage over Rice but was outscored 21-7 in the second half to suffer a defeat. The Blazers had a 360-209 lead in total offense and gained 23 first downs while giving up 14, but they were unable to overcome the deficit.


The Blazers’ passing offense this season is 111th with an average of 181 yards per game while their rushing offense ranks 15th in the country with 220.5 yards per game.


UAB averages 33 points per game on offense, ranking 52nd in the FBS, while holding opponents to 17.5 points per game on defense, ranking 23rd overall.


Throughout this season, Dylan Hopkins completed 50 of 73 throws for 661 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 1 pick.


  • The Alabama-Birmingham Blazers are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 matches. 
  • The UAB Blazers are 13-6 SU in their last 19 contests. 
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of the Blazers’ last 5 matches against Middle Tennessee.

Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders vs UAB Blazers. The NCAAF pick for this game is the UAB Blazers. Middle Tennessee advances down the field by frequently and early using the air, as was seen in their surprise victory against Miami a few weeks ago.


The tandem of McBride and Brown Jr. leads UAB’s formidable ground attack, which makes things difficult for rival defenders. Middle Tennessee’s strength on defense, their pass rush, is negated by the Blazers’ offensive run-centricity and big defensive advantage.


This season, the Blue Raiders racked up 19 sacks, 11 interceptions, and limited opposition teams to 2.8 yards per run. However, James Madison was the most potent running squad they faced thus far, squeezing the Blue Raiders for 261 yards on 52 attempts in a 44-7 drubbing.


To win, UAB will likely need to run the ball well and rely on its defense to pick up the slack. The UAB Blazers will win by a predicted score of 37-21.
