    game. I have a strong lean on USM. Alabama Birmingham just has an awful D. Now, USM has some big players out. RB Damion Fletcher who is on his way to being ranked in the top 5 NCAA rushers of all time is out tonight, however last year he had 5 carries in the 70-14 win against UAB (T. Harrison and Vincent Floyd both had over 20 carries for over 120 yds last year against UAB and both will play tonight), DeAndre Brown a big time playmaker from my home town is out tonight but he has only played 2 games this year due to injuries (they have 3 other WR with 10+ rec for over 100yds and 4 other WR with TD Rec).


    UAB Defense

    AVERAGE SCORE AGAINST: 35.5 111th
    TOTAL YARDS: 480.8 116th
    RUSHING YARDS: 153.5 80th
    PASSING YARDS: 327.3 119th

    USM Defense

    Avg Score Against 22ppg 49th
    Total YDS: 297ypg 29th
    Rushing YDS: 64.3 6th
    Passing YDS: 232.8 84th

    USM Offense

    Avg Score for: 35.8 23rd
    Total Yds: 438.5 21st
    Rushing: 201.8 28th
    Passing: 236.8 48th

    UAB Offense

    Avg score for: 27.5 62nd
    Total Yds: 388 48th
    Rushing: 230.5 12th
    Passing: 157.5 109th


    UAB has played SMU, Troy, and Texas A&M...now A&M is decent this year but they aren't as good as their numbers indicate. However they are explosive on offense like USM and UAB had no shot. They beat Troy by 13 on the road and SMU by 2 at home giving up 33 points.

    USM has played Alcorn State, Central Florida, Virginia, and Kansas. Now they struggled with Virginia at home in very bad weather. Their D struggled in the 1h and played exceptionally well in the 2h. They lost to KU on the road by 7 and put up 28 points in that game.

    Southern Miss is 9-2 ATS in its last 11 games on the road, Southern Miss is 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games when playing UAB, and Southern Miss is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games when playing UAB.

    In recent years here are how they compared with score. 2008 USM wins 70-14, 2007 USM wins at UAB 37-7, 2006 USM wins 25-20, and 2005 USM 37-28. The last two times USM has played when they turned out to have a dynamic offense UAB has had problems scoring and keeping up. Turnovers have hurt the UAB blazers, they turned it over 6 times last year to usm and 2 times the year before.

    Ben, Great information.

    That is why I simply cannot believe that this line is only @ 10. That is why I personally can not touch this game. UAB defense is horrible. I feel like USM will exploit their defense all night long. I just have a strange feeling about that line being so low. The line should easily be 14. The game is a no play for me but I simply can not see how USM does not blow UAB off of the map..

    According to my bookie he got the line at 15 and then when the players for USM were called out it moved to 10. That is just what he said.

    I talked with a couple of my sharper friends and they seem to think UAB is undervalued in the market place. I personally can't see it but just some food for thought. B Lang is also on USM and he's been ice cold

    If there is one thing we have learned is that probably 70+% of the time that we see the majority really liking a pick it turns against us. I am going to ride with USM as I have watched them in person and know what they are capable of. I hear people on tv say that USM is the BEST unknown team in the Nation. I may disagree with them on that not but they are a very legit team. If they come to play and are not looking head to Louisville on the road next week then I see them taking care of business. If they don't come to play then this game will be a close one.


    Good luck and hopefully some good luck will be on my side tonight
