It’s Rivalry Week y’all‼️😁— UAB Football (@UAB_FB) November 6, 2019
The Blazers look to make it four-in-a row and 8-of-9 against the Golden Eagles, but more importantly, continue to control their own destiny towards defending the C-USA title.

Eagles need a big home win to claim bowl eligibility
The Golden Eagles would love nothing more than to see Johnston and Brown on the sidelines for UAB, but they will still have to gameplan with them in mind. There isn't much to
know about Dylan Hopkins, the backup QB for the Blazers, so they will just have to wait and see who goes like the rest of us.
- Golden Eagles are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in November.
- Golden Eagles are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games on turf.
- Over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
Trends from Covers.com:
- Over is 5-1-1 in Blazers last 7 games following a straight-up loss of more than 20 points.
- Blazers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games in November.
The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.
Full-Game Side Bet
With the questionable status of your QB and RB, that makes it tough to put UAB on the board this weekend even with the handful of points.
At -4.5, I just see Southern Mississippi going out and getting the job done to claim their post-season eligibility with a big win this weekend.
I am talking like a 37 - 28 type win because I insist that UAB's defense hasn't been tested yet this season. This is the game they will be exposed and this is the ticket we cash on the chalk with the home team in Hattiesburg! They are NOT what you thought they were!
Southern Miss -4.5 is the play on the side.
Prediction: Southern Miss -4.5
Full-Game Total Pick
37 - 28 means points they are a comin' for us this Saturday in Hattiesburg. Again, I just am simply not convinced that UAB's D is all that and a bag of chips, and those two big injuries could certainly factor into the outcome of this game.
With the home crowd in celebration, I prefer this total to topple the number and come in towards the over for us, so in the books it goes.
Over 50 is the play on the total.
Prediction: Over 50
