Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline lists UAB senior DT Anthony Rush as a potential sleeper for the 2019 draft.

Rush is massive (6'5/350) and as you might guess from a player of his size, he's able to take up space and prevent guards from getting to the next level. What you might not expect from someone of that build is that Rush is also able to beat lineman with quickness, as Pauline mentions. "I presently grade Rush as a sixth round prospect and he’s a name to remember heading towards next April’s draft," Pauline summarizes. We're intrigued.

UAB sophomore RB Spencer Brown rushed for 100 yards and three touchdowns on 25 carries in Saturday's 29-21 win over North Texas.

Brrown (6'0/235) scored two of his three touchdowns in the second half, including the crucial three-yarder early in the fourth quarter to give UAB a 26-21 advantage. They would tack on a field goal later in the quarter. This was Brown's third 100-yard effort of the campaign. Overall, the sophomore has now rushed for 591 yards and 10 touchdowns through seven games played. He'll look to add to those numbers against UTEP next weekend.
Oct 20 - 11:12 PM

Per Pro Football Focus, UAB redshirt senior QB A.J. Erdely completed 5-of-7 passes for 216 yards and two touchdowns on passes thrown 20+ yards in Saturday's 42-0 win.

Erdely only had 17 attempts on the day as a whole, meaning nearly half of them went 20+ yards in the air. Erdely has had an up-and-down season but his team has had plenty of success. The Blazers now move to 5-1 on the season and can lock up a bowl trip with a win against North Texas next week.
Oct 14 - 12:05 PM

UAB senior WR Xavier Ubosi had four catches for 196 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 42-0 blowout win over Rice.

Where did this come from?! Ubosi posted a 13-228-1 line last year in his first season at UAB. He came into today with only six catches for 139 yards and a score on the campaign. Not only was this Ubosi's first career 100-yard game at the FBS level, but he'd actually never gone over 75 yards prior to today.
Oct 13 - 4:34 PM

UAB redshirt senior QB A.J. Erdely completed 11-of-17 passes for 274 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 42-0 blowout win over Rice.

That's a slick 16.1 yards per attempt. Erdely added another 29 yards and a TD on the ground. He came into today with a mediocre 5/5 TD/INT rate, so this performance was good to see. The 5-1 Blazers can lock up a second-consecutive bowl trip by beating North Texas in next week's crucial Conference USA matchup.
Oct 13 - 4:21 PM

UAB redshirt senior QB A.J. Erdely completed just 8-of-24 passes for 136 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Saturday's 28-7 win over Louisiana Tech.

Erdely really struggled as a passer (25 percent completion percentage) but he was able to score and pick up 76 yards on his 13 carries to save his stat line. Spencer Brown, who ran for 90 yards and two touchdowns, and the Blazers defense were the reasons why UAB blew out Louisiana Tech. Erdely will bring a shaky 5/5 TD/INT ratio into next weekend's game against Rice.
Oct 7 - 1:49 AM

UAB sophomore RB Spencer Brown rushed for 90 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries in Saturday's 28-7 win over Louisiana Tech.

Brown (6'0/235) had a bounce back game after being slowed down by Charlotte last week. The Blazers had full control of this game after they took the 14-7 lead, which allowed Brown to roll to his second two touchdown game of the year. His first touchdown was a goal line plunge, but he also ran one in from 26 yards out. The sophomore back has a five-game streak of at least 68 rushing yards, and he has a good chance to extend the streak next week against Rice.
Oct 7 - 1:38 AM

UAB redshirt senior QB A.J. Erdely completed 13-of-16 passes for 214 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Saturday's 28-7 victory against Charlotte.

Erdely also rushed 10 times for 21 yards and a touchdown, extending his streak to three consecutive games with at least one score with his feet. He still has just four TD passes and four INTs, but he was very accurate in this one. Erdely's 81.3 completion percentage was his highest of the season. He'll try to carry over the momentum into next Saturday's battle on the road against Louisiana Tech.
Sep 29 - 11:44 PM

UAB sophomore RB Spencer Brown carried 18 times for 68 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Saturday's 28-7 victory against Charlotte.

It was tough sledding all night, and he ended up averaging just 3.8 yards per carry in a workmanlike performance for his lowest yardage total of the season. But he shined in the red zone when called upon, cashing in from two yards out near the end of the first quarter and to close out the scoring in the fourth. Brown now has four rushing TDs in four games. He'll look to build upon the performance heading into next week's road game against Louisiana Tech.
Sep 29 - 11:40 PM

UAB junior Kingston Davis has been placed on an interim suspension.

Davis (6'1/245) can't be with the team until the university's investigation is complete. UAB is unable to give details regarding the investigation, but he will not be playing in Saturday's game against Charlotte. The JUCO transfer has 16 carries for 41 yards (2.6 YPC) this season and has been operating as Spencer Brown's change-of-pace back.

Sep 28 - 4:19 PM

UAB sophomore RB Spencer Brown rushed for 101 yards and one touchdown on 24 carries in Saturday's 31-24 win over Tulane.

Brown (6'0/235) exceeded 18 carries, 92 rushing yards and 4.2 YPC for the third straight time to start this season. His highlight run came in the second quarter when Brown converted his near goal line carry -- this shouldn't come as a surprise as he is one of the nation's top power backs -- for a two yard touchdown. Through three games, Brown is up to 297 rushing yards on 62 carries. UAB gets a bye next week, and then plays Charlotte.
Sep 15 - 4:33 PM

UAB sophomore RB Spencer Brown ran for 94 yards on 20 carries in a 47-24 loss on Saturday to Coastal Carolina.

Brown (6'0/235) had a big first 30 minutes with 70 rushing yards, but couldn't get anything going in the second half, and the Blazers had to take him out of the game plan after they fell behind. The sophomore running back still showed off his power on several runs, and remains one of the best -- and most underrated -- power backs in the country. UAB will try and get back on track next Saturday against Tulane.
Sep 8 - 10:38 PM

UAB redshirt senior WR Collin Lisa caught ten passes for 93 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 52-0 win over Savannah State.

Lisa (5'10/175) was by far the top option for the UAB passing game with the second most receptions on the team at just three. His ten receptions were extremely impressive given the Blazers only attempted 29 passes in the game. Lisa will try to top his 93 yards next Saturday against Coastal Carolina.
Aug 30 - 11:54 PM

UAB sophomore RB Spencer Brown rushed for 102 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries in Thursday's 52-0 win over Savannah State.

Brown (6'0/235) is one of the most powerful backs in the country -- he squatted 600 pounds this offseason as a sophomore -- and it showed tonight, as he ran for 5.67 yards per carry in the blowout win. As a freshman, Brown ran for 1,329 yards but it looks like he can surpass that total if he stays healthy. UAB plays Coastal Carolina next Saturday.
Aug 30 - 11:44 PM

Alabama.com projects UAB redshirt senior WR Andre Wilson to be the teams starting X-receiver.

This isn't surprising as Wilson led the team in catches last season with 54, ranking fifth most in program history. He had back-to-back monster games in the middle of the season last year against North Texas (5-150-2) and Louisiana Tech (8-105-0). With incumbent quarterback A.J. Erdely and South Alabama transfer Dallas Davis competing for the starting spot, Wilson should again see competent quarterback play in 2018, potentially helping to build on last season's production.
