BLAZERS BLOWOUT GOLDEN EAGLES
BLAZERS OPEN WITH HUGE SECOND HALF, WIN 33-7

(#95 RICHARDSON AND #55 COX CELEBRATE A SACK ON SOUTHERN MISS QUARTERBACK ANDRE SIMMONS)

BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA
--
UAB's suffocating defense allowed only 259 yards and had 20 tackles for loss, while freshmen quarterback Adam Dyks looked flawless in the second half and the the No. 22-ranked Blazers grabbed a 33-7 victory over Southern Miss Saturday. UAB (3-0) beat Southern Miss (1-1) for the 3rd-staright time.
UAB outgained Southern Miss, 431-259, including a 138-45 advantage on the ground. Despite a slow first half that saw the Blazers only up 3-0 at halftime.
"Very hard fought game." Blazer head coach Travis Rhatigan said. " It came down to who wanted it more, and we showed a lot of heart in that second half to jump on them like that."

After a interception on the games first play starting quarterback Adam Dyks was nearly flawless, completing 15-of-27 passes for 293 yards including touchdown passes to Ian Wilson and Ralph Rawls to start the second half.
UAB running back Matthew Scott carried the load offensively, gaining 146 yards on 21 carries. Fellow back Mark Rutledge carried six times for 27 yards and a score.
Ford led the Blazers receiving corps with 105 yards on seven catches. Wilson and Rawls both grabbed four receptions for 89 and 99 yards respectfully.
The Blazer defense was stellar and dominant. Before the game's final drive when the game was in hand, UAB did not allow a single point up 33-0 before Simmons connected with P. Hudson for a four yard score.
"We wanted to make a statement heading into conference play next week." Free Safety Holycross said after the game.
Safety Dominique Rhodes led with 12 tackles. UAB grabbed five sacks on the day. Defensive tackle Brandon Richardson grabbed 3 sacks fellow defensive line Marcus Leak and Patterson both recorded one.

After the first quarter, Southern Miss quarterback Andre Simmons had little success against the Blazer defense. Once UAB found its bearings against the 6-foot-4, 225-pound quarterback, Simmons finished 15-of-23 passing for 214 yards but had just 117 heading into the fourth quarter.
Simmons also carried for a team-high 17 yards. He was sacked five times. Running back Anthony Fontenot couldn't get anything going as well rushing for 17 yards on 16 carries.
Both defenses came out the gates making statements, for Southern Miss safety K. Wesley picked off Dyks on the first play of the game sending the boisterous crowd into boo's. But UAB came out and answered forcing Simmons and the Eagles to a three and out. UAB would then use timely pass plays and carries from Scott before Adam Miller put UAB on the board with a 47 yard field goal to go up 3-0. The second quarter featured the same type of play, UAB showed flashes of breaking the game open as Dyks missed a few passes that could very well have been scores.
" I missed some gimmies, we'll get our timing down." Dyks added.

After a stagnant first half UAB opened up a two play 76 yard drive that Dyks use both plays to connect with Ian Wilson who scored on a diving 11 yard touchdown catch.
Southern Miss and Simmons still had no answers as the Blazers hit him seemingly every play. On third and long Richardson got through the defense for his second sack of the day. The next drive saw Dyks connect with Ralph Rawls who showed great concentration on the overhead catch on two defenders.

Up 17-0 the route was on. A loud thunderous crowd forced Southern two straight false start penalties to start the fourth quarter, those penalties pinned Southern Miss on their own five yard line and UAB brought the house sacking Simmons for the safety. On the play Richardson got in the backfield yet again hitting an unaware Simmons who tried stumbling out the end zone but was finally tripped up by Marcus Leak for the sack and safety. Up 19-0 and not looking back UAB got a amazing 83 yard touchdown run from Matthew Scott. Coming out in the power eye on 3rd and 3 Scott bounced the dive outside before using a spin move to get free and race down the sideline, Rutledge added a late touchdown to put UAB up 33-0.

Rhatigan's post game comments:VERY PROUD OF THE WAY OUR GUYS PLAYED TODAY. VERY HARD FOUGHT GAME, IT CAME DOWN TO WHO WANTED IT MORE, AND WE SHOWED A LOT OF HEART IN THAT SECOND HALF TO JUMP ON THEM LIKE THAT. AT HALFTIME WE AS A STAFF DIDNT HAVE TO COME IN AND CRITICIZE OUR MISTAKES AND MISCUES, WE FELT WE MISSED SOME OPPORTUNITIES AND WE WERE GONNA TRY OUR LUCK AGAIN WITH THEM. GIVE CREDIT TO SOUTHERN MISS BATTLING HARD AND NOT GIVING UP WITH THE LATE SCORE THEY ADDED. WE'LL CELEBRATE TONIGHT AND THEN GET READY FOR CONFERENCE PLAY NEXT WEEK.

UAB returns to action on Saturday, Sept. 14, when it travels to Fayetteville, AR, to face the Razorbacks. Kickoff time for the nationally televised game will be announced on Monday.

FLEX DAY:
AS CONFERENCE PLAY OPENS UP TEAMS ACROSS THE HAVE A CHANCE
TO FLEX THEIR MUSCLES AND PROVE THERE WORTH.
HERE ARE THIS WEEKENDS TOP GAMES

#12 Oregon (1-1) at Stanford (2-0)
Oregon's humiliating loss to Nevada last week have some thinking if they were ranked to high. While Stanford led by sensational back Keon Brown have a chance to burry the stake in a vulnerable Oregon team

#20 UAB (3-0) at #4 Arkansas (2-0)
For the Blazers this could very well be their welcoming to the SEC. Theyll have to overcome a Razorback team who has the third longest win streak at home sitting at 12 and try to handle the speed of Arkansas offense led by quarterback Freddie Robinson. Can the young Blazer Flex their muscles or will they get flexed on.

Florida (3-0) at Tennessee (1-1)
A tough loss for Tennessee last week as they got embarrassed by Oklahoma State at home. They now turn around to play a rejuvenated Florida Gator team who finally looks to have regained past success. Rocky Top will be rocking and Tennessee hopes to feed off it.




#3 Penn State (1-0) at #21 Oklahoma State (2-0)
GameDay travels to Stillwater, Oklahoma to see Penn State make a rare trip to the southern plains. For Penn State they come off a bye week after getting their first win without Joe Pa being associated with the program. They have to try and stop one the nations top rated passers in Alex Butler. His 216.9 ranks him fourth in the country and his 9 touchdowns to 1 interceptions shows his ability to pick apart a defense.

BLAZER WEEKLY

DYKS LEADS A CONFIDENT
BUNCH INTO HOG LAND

(QUARTERBACK ADAM DYKS IN ACTION AGAINST VIRGINIA TECH)

BIRMINGHAM, AL -- The Blazers know whats at stake this week when they travel to Fayetteville to take on the #4 team in the land. But don't tell freshmen quarterback Adam Dyks. He spear heads a confident UAB offense and feel the Razorbacks should be more worried than his Blazers.
"There's no pressure on us." said Dyks after Tuesday's Practice. "They're the #4 team in the country, they're at home, so the pressure is on them to do what they're supposed to do."
The Razorbacks have won 12 straight games at home dating back to the 2011 season when the streak started.
"We're no strangers to big games like this." stated head coach Travis Rhatigan. "This is why we joined the SEC for games like this to play the best the country has to offer week in and week out."
Dyks has led a very good offense thus far. The True Freshmen leads the SEC in passing yards with 893 as well as in touchdowns with 9 through three games. Three of UAB's receivers are atop the yards list led by Ian Wilson's 286 and four touchdowns. The receiving core has look real good through the first three games and seem as confident as anyone on the team.
"As always its a business trip, am I gonna guarantee a victory? No! but Im not gonna sit here and say we're gonna lose." stated sophomore receiver Matt Ford. Ford is second in receiving with 280 through the first three games.
The Blazers are not only bringing the swag but they hope to bring back a W.

Head Coach Travis Rhatigan spoke to the media about this weeks preparation for Arkansas.

Opening Statement:
We look forward to matching wits with the Razorbacks. Coach Patrino has those guys playing good football. I remember the great run they had a year ago and the majority of that team is back.
As for us we had two very solid practices so far with today being more up tempting in case they give us a no huddle look. So a lot of conditioning going on this week. With a young team I always let them know, do not buy into the hype because at the end of the day its still football. I dont want them listening to how the Razorbacks haven't lost at home in two seasons hell we havent either.
We'll be ready for there dual threat quarterback in Freddie Robinson, we'll try to pressure him as best we can up front. I have McFarland and Love asking if they both can cover there go to guy in James Lawrence, I like how involved they are with the gameplan. Its gonna be a fun week and we hope to bring home our first SEC victory.

UAB brings into this contest the #5 ranked offense in the country. Led by running back Matthew Scott's 120.3 yards a game (2nd NCAA) and quarterback Adam Dyks's 893 yards (4th NCAA) the Blazers have a balanced attack that the Razorbacks need to be worried about. Should they stop Scott and let Dyks and his receiving core pick you off or should they stop Dyks and let Scott run all over you. Its best they stop Scott and allow the young freshmen to try and beat them.
Arkansas brings into this game better quality of wins having taken care of Ohio State and up and coming Arkansas State beating them rather easy. Quarterback Freddie Robinson brings in both his arm and his legs and could frustrate the young defense for UAB. He has two weapons in running back Brett Clement and receiver James Lawrence. Clement a 274 pound running back can wear out this UAB defense if they dont stop him early while Lawrence big play ability with the deep ball will help open Robinson up for pass run options.

BLAZERS UPSET RAZORBACKS
BLAZERS REEL OFF 26 UNANSWERED POINTS
TO BEAT #4 ARKANSAS 54-28

(FROM LEFT TO RIGHT #77 KAREEM KIRBY, #91 MARCUS LEAK AND #55 TOM COX-- CELEBRATING A UPSET VICTORY OVER ARKANSAS)


___________________________
ASSOCIATED PRESS________

FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS -- Ignited by a safety and a four sack performance by senior defensive end Kareem Kirby, No. 20 UAB passed their first test on the road this season, 54-28, on Saturday at No. 4 Arkansas.

UAB (4-0, 1-0 SEC) lost some defensive battles mid way through but won the war against the tough Razorbacks who battle back from a 21-7 deficit to tie the game at 28.

Once it was all said and done however, the Blazers had scored 26-unanswered points and the Travis Rhatigan coached team put away another top-notch opponent at its packed house.
"We're probably the only guys in America who felt we would come in here and grab the win. These guys accepted the challenge."
Stated Rhatigan. " It was definitley a tough venue but the guys channeled their energy and focused on the task."

It was also UAB's first ever Southeastern Conference win. The Blazers will next play at #6 Auburn on September 28th after a much needed bye week. If Auburn can get past #22 Boise State on the it will set up for a huge SEC west showdowns between two undefeated teams. Arkansas fell to 2-1 overall and 0-1 in the SEC.
After UAB pulled out to a 21-7 first quarter lead that led to a 28-21 halftime lead, the Razorbacks got a 38 yard Bret Clement touchdown run to tie the game at 28 all. The pig sooie chants were loud and DW Reynolds Stadium was rocking as Arkansas seemed to have all the momentum after scoring 14 straight to tie the game. Arkansas didnt score again after that.


(ARKANSAS RUNNING BACK BRETT CLEMENT TIES THE GAME AT 28 WITH THIS SCORE)

Arkansas was able to stall the Blazers next drive at mid field and forced a punt. A bad judgment by Razorback returner K. Ashley allowed the Blazers to down the ball inside the five yard line.
For the second week in a row the Blazer defensive line stepped up forcing quarterback Freddie Robinson to try and scramble but defense end Kareem Kirby got a hold of him and grabbed the safety putting UAB up 30-28.
UAB quarterback Adam Dyks then led the Blazers on the field, and on the first play rifled a bullet in between two razorback defenders into the out stretched arms of his main target Ian Wilson who raced 72 yards for the score and the route was on. Wilson also had a 71 yard score earlier in the game. Dyks would finished 12-of-23 passing for a freshmen school record of 401 yards.

Meanwhile, UAB running backs Matthew Scott and Marcus Rutledge carried the load as the Blazers pulled away. Rutledge had 24 yards on 9 carries and a score, while Scott scored twice and had 91 yards on 18 carries. Scott's two scores put UAB up comfortably 44-28. With the game winding down the Razorbacks were forced to pass but Robinson had no luck as the Blazers clamped down the pass coverage. A third and long saw sophomore defensive tackle Marcus Leak blind side Robinson causing him to lose the football defensive tackle Brandon Richardson scooped up the ball and returned it the last fifteen yards for the score as the blazer sideline celebrated the fumble return capped the scoring and UAB saw themselves up 54-28.

(MARCUS LEAK FORCED FUMBLE OF FREDDIE ROBINSON LED TO BRANDON RICHARDSON SCOOP AND SCORE)

Wide receiver Matt Ford was Dyks's favorite target, leading the way with six catches and 119 yards it was Ian Wilson however that racked up 202 yards on four catches, Ralph Rawls added a pair of catches for 80 with a 57-yard touchdown to open the scoring. Defensively Kareem Kirby led the way with 7 tackles and 4 sacks.
" Coach just gave me the green light, lately I've been getting double teamed but with Richardson and Leak doing work in the middle it gave me some one on one opportunities and I made the most of them today."
Said defensive end Kareem Kirby.
Linebacker Timi McCollum grabbed two more sacks, Leak registered a sack and Richardson and Holycross shared a sack. The Blazers got to Robinson 8 times and flustered the Arkansas passing game.
" We wanted to keep everything in front of us, for the most part we did but let Lawrence sneak away for the long touchdown."
Anthony McFarland in reference to Lawrence's 73 yard touchdown catch that put Arkansas within a score before halftime. "We made the adjustments and made plays the rest of the way."

For Arkansas Robinson finished 13-22 for 202 yards and two touchdowns. Lawrence led the receivers with two catches and 75 yards and a score. Bret Clement was gettin success against the blazers rushing for 91 yards on 14 carries and two scores.
"We wished we could've kept giving the ball to Bret (Clement)." Head coach Bobby Petrino said. "But after the safety in the third quarter it kinda snowballed and just like that we were down sixteen and had to pass, top it with our terrible play on third downs and you have that outcome." Arkansas play host to Alabama next week.

RHATIGAN'S POST GAME COMMENTS: THESE YOUNG MEN GET IT, THEY UNDERSTAND WHAT WE WANT FROM THEM EACH WEEK. THAT ARKANSAS TEAM WAS A DAMN GOOD ONE, AND IF OUR DEFENSE HAD'NT STEPPED UP IN THE THIRD QUARTER I FEEL THEY WOULD HAVE TAKEN ALL THE MOMENTUM AND GOT CLEMENT ROLLING AS IT LOOKED LIKE HE WAS PICKING UP STEAM. KAREEM WAS HUGE FOR US TODAY, HE REALLY GOT AFTER IT AND MADE BIG PLAYS. HIS PLAY FOR THE SAFETY DEFINITELY SPARKED OUR BOYS AND ADAM (DYKS) THAT KID IS OFF TO A GREAT START OVER 500 YARDS OF OFFENSE IS HUGE FOR HIS CONFIDENCE. WE'LL ENJOY THIS WIN AND THE UPCOMING BYE WEEK.

Yet another big in-season non conference game for the Boise State Broncos. Quarterback Vince Alston leads the Bronco's against the #8 rated defense in the country.
With a huge conference game next week against UAB, Tiger fans hope they aren't looking past Boise.

#2 Alabama (2-0) at #11 Arkansas (2-1)
The Tide hope to avenge a beat down by the hands of Arkansas a year ago. Arkansas needs this win to keep pace for the SEC West Title after losing to UAB a week ago.

#1 TCU (3-0) at #18 Oklahoma State (3-0)
Quarterback Alex Butler leads a confident Ok State team at home against the nations #1 team in the country. Butler is coming off a national player of the week award after a four touchdown performance against Penn State. TCU hasn't been challenge since a week one win over LSU.



NC State (3-0) at #8 Georgia Tech (3-0)
In the night capped hosted by Gameday the Nation will get to see what the fuss is all about when Georgia Tech running backs Lawrence Jenkins (325 yards) and Kevin Williams (5.4 ypc 5 td's) take the field against the ACC's #1 rated defense led by defensive ends Alvin Ostrander and Jonathon Booker who combine for 7.0 quarterback sacks.

BLAZER WEEKLY

LINE OF DEFENSE
BLAZERS ARE 4-0 THANKS TO THE PLAY
OF THE DEFENSIVE LINE:

(SENIORS BRANDON RICHARDSON (LEFT) AND KAREEM KIRBY LEADING THE YOUTHFUL BLAZER DEFENSIVE FRONT)

BIRMINGHAM, AL -- With all that talk about how young this Blazer defense is, Seniors Brandon Richardson and Kareem Kirby have quietly led the way for this Blazer defense at 4.5 sacks along with sophomore Marcus Leak these Blazers are one two three a top the SEC in that category. As a unit the defensive line leads the country with a combined 15.0 sacks
"We push each other everyday." stated Kareem after Tuesday's practice. "Every one here is good and can easily be playing, so that makes us work just as hard."
When asked about being one of two seniors starting on this defense, Brandon Richardson had this to say: "(chuckling) its funny at times, we're the so called old men of the team. When coach puts out a curfew he looks right at us, because the other guys are too young to go out at the bars on campus."
With a bye week ahead they now have a week to prepare for Auburn and there great offensive line. Quarterback Kenneth Fredrick has only been sacked once in their first two games.

Head Coach Travis Rhatigan spoke to the Media Wednesday afternoon, about the upcoming bye week.

Opening Statement:
Today will be our last workday before we shut it down. Thursday will be a lot of conditioning and 7-7 seven and one on ones then Im giving the players Friday, Saturday and Sunday off. Then we're back full tilt Monday-Tuesday and Wednesday next week.

On his thoughts of the teams progress so far:
They've exceeded expectations. Lets face it we are young on defense. But I will say this our offense has a lot of returning starter except for Adam Dyks who has definitely played very well for us. I beleive the leadership provided by receivers Ian Wilson and Ralph Rawls have rubbed onto our younger guys.

On the teams #7 ranking in the media poll:
Its great exposure for recruiting, the kids in high school have a chance to see us every weekend whether its a national Broadcast or a regional, our games aren't blacked out anymore. A lot of credit goes to our fan base filling the seats as well as us joining the best conference in the country. Now guys like Ian Wilson (WR) Timi McCollum (LB) and Matthew Scott (RB) get the legitimate look from voters around the country.

On getting ready for meat of the schedule:
Well this is what we wanted. Its time see if we have what it takes to play big tough games every week. We know we can play a great game in one week then play a lesser opponent the next but in the SEC everybody is good. Im excited and the players are too.

Clifford who leads the country in rushing yards Boston College has a chance to go 5-0 since the Matt Ryan's senior year.

#23 GEORGIA (4-0) AT #6 IOWA (4-0)
Averaging the nations second highest points per game at 51.0 the Georgia Bulldogs travel to Iowa City knowing they can score. Iowa will have to start true freshmen Mark Davis, Davis will have to play smart and keep away if the Hawkeyes want to win.

MARYLAND (4-0) AT #18 VIRGINIA TECH (2-1)
This is a pivotal game for both teams, last season Maryland beat the Hokies in the ACC championship game and ruined a great year for V-Tech. Now the Hokies get a chance to end Maryland's undefeated season and a chance to not let them in the top 25

#14 UAB (4-0) at #10 AUBURN (2-1)
Last season the Blazers stole a close one from the Tigers in Jordan-Hare 29-28 in the first installment of the SEC's version of the "CIVIL WAR". This year more is on the line as both teams meet for the first time as conference foe's. Auburn will be out for revenge as UAB will be out for respect.
