In NCAA Football New Orleans Bowl, we will see Appalachian State at UAB.
The UAB Blazers are 9-4 this season and they have been dominant against weaker sides and they are losing by double digits to stronger opponents. Last time out, they had to face Florida Atlantic and they lost 49-6 in a game where their running game was missing. RB Spencer Brown had just 65 rushing yards on 18 carries and he couldn’t help his team move the sticks. QB Tyler Johnston III had an awful performance again, finishing with 42 passing yards and an interception.
The Appalachian State Mountaineers only played against non-ranked sides this year and that is why they are 12-1 with great points scored/allowed ratio- 39.4:20.2 per game. QB Zac Thomas is completing 63% of his throws for 2576 yards, 26 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions while RB Darrynton Evans is adding 1323 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns.
This is another coaching transition situation as Eliah Drinkwitz left the Mountaineers. The UAB Blazers lead their conference in total defense and even though I believe that Appalachian State will secure the victory, I do not think it will be by more than 16 points.
