BLAZER WEEKLY

BAD MOON RISING
BLAZERS ENTER FIRST BCS RANKINGS AT NO. 3

BIRMINGHAM, AL -- UAB checked in at No. 3 in the first Bowl Championship Series standings of the season announced Sunday evening. It is the highest debut and the highest overall position that UAB has reached in the BCS standings mid season.
"The recognition is great for our football program," said UAB head coach Travis Rhatigan. "But we are only halfway through the season and things can change quickly. We have another tough road opponent this week at Kentucky. That game needs to be our focus."
The Blazers are behind Iowa (#2) and conference foe Alabama (#1) The two could be heading for a collision course if they win out.

Coach Rhatigan addresses the media prior to the Kentucky game:

OPENING STATEMENT: Its been a hectic week with the media at practices, I know we're No. 3 in the BCS but that doesn't matter right now. What matters is going back on the road to play a Kentucky team looking to play spoiler. We know they havent had the type of year they would like at 1-6 but these kids are on scholarship two and on any given Saturday anything can happen. They turn the ball over a lot so we need to make sure they keep doing that. I like what we've been doing on defense. Dyks has looked good this week at practice but we may slowly hold him back some. He started off strong but has thrown a lot of interceptions, with the success of our running game we're gonna give Dyks ideal situations to throw the ball.
We're back on the road again this week and Like how the guys handle that. They are real mature about being on the road and no its always a business trip. We'll have a walk through tomorrow before heading out on Friday.

ON TO THE NEXT:
#4 UAB (7-0) AT KENTUCKY (1-6)
1pm Kick-off
Common-Wealth Stadium
ESPNU Broadcast

The Blazers hope to not fall into the trap Kentucky is setting up with their 1-6 record. A local Broadcast as well as a bad Kentucky team may have UAB looking past the Wildcats. For the most part UAB defense hasn't slept on any opponent this year as they continue to be in the top 15 defenses in the country led by Linebacker Timi McCollum. Matthew Scott looks to have finally gotten back to last season's form and looks to carry the Blazers past Kentucky. Kentucky has been looking for consistency, quarterback A. Ricks has been anything but throwing for seven interceptions and only four touchdowns. In seven games he hasn't even eclipsed 1,000 yards passing. Kentucky will hope D. Pollard can get some room against this stingy run defense if Kentucky is to keep it close.

TOTAL DOMINATION
UNDEFEATED BLAZERS ROUTE KENTUCKY 59-14

(DEFENSIVE LINEMEN MARCUS LEAK AND BRANDON RICHARDSON ATTEMPT TO SACK KENTUCKY'S QUARTERBACK SATURDAY AFTERNOON)
__________________
ASSOCIATED PRESS_:


LEXINGTON, KY --
Roderick Brook's 92-yard kickoff return sparked the No. 3-ranked (BCS) UAB football team to its largest margin of victory in the 2013 with a 45 point victory, on Saturday in Common-Wealth Stadium. The Blazers, who have won four road games and defeated four ranked opponents this season, led 31-7 at halftime and outgained Kentucky in the second half, 239-91, while outscoring the Wildcats 28-7.

(BROOK'S OUT RUNS THE KENTUCKY KICKOFF TEAM FOR THIS 92 YARD TOUCHDOWN RETURN IN THE SECOND QUARTER)

In the end, UAB extended its consecutive double-digit margins of victory to three straight.

The return home for a bye week before a game considered to be for the SEC East title at home against Georgia (5-2, 4-1) on November 2nd.

UAB (8-0, 5-0 SEC) started its SEC East slate 2-0, as the Blazers won all both contests against South Carolina and now Kentucky.
Kentucky fell to 1-7 overall and 0-5 in SEC play.
Brook's helped UAB break open a 17-7 game late in the second quarter with the big return, his third of the season which is tops in the NCAA. Two plays later, Freshmen quarterback Adam Dyks would hit a wide open Ian Wilson from 22 yards out for the score after a huge hit on the kickoff as A. Miller got tattooed, and the rout was on.
Dyks finished 8-of-14 passing for 188 yards and three touchdowns. "Like I said during the week, we were gonna simplify the game plan and give him better situations to throw the football." Head coach Travis Rhatigan state after the game.

Running back Matthew Scott led the Blazers fierce ground game, as he scored two rushing touchdowns. Scott had 193 yards on 19 carries including a 74 yard scamper early in the second quarter it was his second straight game over 190 yards.

--
(MATTHEW SCOTT ECLIPSES THE 1,000 YARD MARK IN TODAYS GAME)

" We fed him the rock early and established a mind set." Senior Offensive tackle Daniel Anderson stated. " We you start the game off like that, you let the other team know its gonna be a long day for them.". In the fourth quarter, Marcus Rutledge got the majority of the carries and didnt disappoint either as he carried the ball eight times for 87 yards and added another two scores on the ground.
Wilson was Dyks go to man, catching four passes for 91 yards and two scores. Speed demon Matt Ford hauled in two receptions for 88 yards including a 60 yard touchdown.
The Blazers controlled the clock, holding UAB to only three second-half drives and winning the time of possession 16:37 to 11:23.
UAB continued to protect the ball well. But Dyks, who seemingly was trying to throw the ball away late in the third quarter threw a interception after he was hit trying to throw the ball.
Meanwhile the hot UAB defense had just one take away against Kentucky. But pressured quarterback A. Ricks sacking him four times and hitting him numerous times. Tom Cox, Richard Barnes and Timi McCollum led the Blazers with seven tackles a piece. While Leak and Cox both recorded Sacks.
--
( THE DEFENSE WAS ALL OVER KENTUCKY QUARTERBACK A. RICKS FRUSTRATING HIM FROM START TO FINISH)

Ricks was 8-of-15 passing for 156 yards, including 77 yard touchdown pass to running back B. Miller late in the fourth quarter. Running back B. Miller filling in for D. Pollard who got knocked out just the second play of the game had 14 carries for 124 yards and the Wildcats only score's. He led the team with two receptions for 87 yards.

UAB won the toss and elected to receive. After pounding the ball the whole opening drive (6 runs, 2 passes) the Blazers settled for a Adam Miller 42 yard field goal.
It wasn't long before they would hit the end zone however. Kentucky would punt back to the Blazers, as the second quarter started and the run game established the Blazers would get down the field on a few passes from Dyks to Wilson before Scott rumbled in from seven yards out putting UAB up 10-0.
A fired up Blazer defense sacked Ricks twice and forced another punt. This time on the first play Scott would take the hand off a scoot 74 yards down the field putting UAB up 17-0 early in the second quarter. Kentucky finally calmed down and B. Miller who replaced Pollard to a pitch to the right sideline, got a good block and took off for a 70 yard touchdown putting Kentucky back in the game down 17-7. It was the ensuing kickoff that turned out to be the dagger. Two time returner of the year and All American Roderick Brook's to the short kickoff at his 8 yard, juked right and hit the sideline as the Blazer sideline followed him to the end zone. When it was done it was a un touched 92 yard touchdown putting UAB up 24-7.
The Blazers would get it back on the next kickoff after forcing a fumble, two plays later Ian Wilson would haul in a 22 yard touchdown as the teams entered the half with the score UAB 31 Kentucky 7.
The second half would be the same. UAB got touchdown receptions from Ian Wilson (20 yards) and Matt Ford (60) before turning the game over to the rushing department. Mathew Scott helped move the chains with gashing runs before the staff put in back-up Marcus Rutledge who used his size and deceptive speed to help control the clock. Rutledge who powered in a 11 yard touchdown, also showed off his speed bringing one in from 42 yards on a third and three.

(RUTLEDGE USES HIS SIZE AND POWER ON THIS 11 YARD TOUCHDOWN RUN)

"Rutledge could start on any team in America." Rhatigan said. "It shows you the type of players we have here, they know their role and take advantage of their opportunities when they get him. It was good to see him run like that and more importantly it was good to see our offensive line push some guys around."

The Blazer held Kentucky to just first third downs all game including 1 for 10 on third downs while the Blazers were 4 for 8 as well as having 11 first downs in the game.
"When you can control the third dows, your more than likely gonna win." Middle Linebacker Timi McCollum said.
"We pride ourselves in getting teams into third and long situations and we feel if we can get you to that we have a damn good chance."

  • Wisconsin's quarterback M. Weldon is probable
  • 4-2 Arkansas State looks forward to facing 5-1 Southern Miss (conf-usa)

HEISMAN TALK:
After a terrible performance by front runner Marcus Clifford who carried the ball only three times in a loss to Virginia Tech last week. Maryland's Chris Sims and UAB's Matthew Scott are the new front runners. Sims grabbed 145 yards and a touchdown last week while Scott racked up 193 yards and two scores making him the NCAA leader in both. With both Maryland and UAB undefeated look for these two guys to be the top vote getters down the stretch. TCU's Brandon Wilson's 5 touchdown performance a week ago has him in the talks as we head down the stretch. Heres the top five candidates.
  1. Chris Sims - RB Maryland
  2. Matthew Scott - RB UAB
  3. Vince Alsto - QB Boise State
  4. Marcus Clifford - Boston College
  5. Brandon Wilson - RB TCU
BCS TALK:
A few twist in the second installment of the BCS rankings. Despite a bye week the Fightin' Illini jumped from 6th to 4th. Alabama, Iowa, and UAB all stayed at 1,2,3. Maryland led by sensational running back Chris Sims is in the top 10 for the first time in school history as they debut at #7. Here's the BCS top 15.
  1. ALABAMA 7-0
  2. IOWA 7-0
  3. UAB 8-0
  4. ILLINOIS 7-0
  5. TCU 8-0
  6. GEORGIA TECH 7-0
  7. MARYLAND 7-0
  8. LSU 6-1
  9. BOISE STATE 7-1
  10. NEVADA 6-1
  11. WISCONSIN 6-1
  12. AUBURN 5-2
  13. OKLAHOMA STATE 6-1
  14. VIRGINIA TECH 5-2
  15. OKLAHOMA 5-2
TOP GAMES FOR WEEK 10

Southern Miss (5-1) at Arkansas State (4-2)
With conference usa losing its conference championship every game is pivotal. Southern Miss is trying to keep pace with Marshall as both teams are 3-0 in conference play. A bad loss to Marshall a week ago has Arkansas State needing to win out for a chance. X. Jackson will need to continue to pressure the quarterback if the Red Wolves will have a chance against one of the passer in the conference in A. Simmons

#22 Indiana (6-1) at Nebraska (5-2)
This is uncharted land for the Hoosiers who travel to hostile Lincoln. Indiana is in a tight battle for the Big 10's Leader Division. A win at Nebraska will certainly help. Led by K. Jones at quarterback Indiana has been quite the team with his 19 touchdowns and only 4 interceptions. Nebraska is currently trailing Iowa in the Legends division. They started a murderer's row starting with a loss to 5-2 Michigan last week, 6-1 Indiana this week and at #5 Illinois next week. They'll look to their defense to get them the win.

#14 Virginia Tech (5-2) at #24 Duke (5-2)
Since losing to #7 Maryland last month VTech has ripped off three straight wins including a upset of Boston College 23-0 last week. Led by the one two punch of quarterback J. Carroll and running back M. Morgan who has 10 rushing touchdowns this year, VTech looks to make a move for the coastal crown. Duke on the other hand had High aspirations until losing two of the last three games including a loss to 4-4 Navy last week. They have what it takes to win at home after knocking off Miami two weeks ago there but they face a stiff challenge this week.



College Gameday Game of the Week
#8 LSU (6-1) at #12 Auburn (5-2)
With the showdown against #1 Alabama looming a week away for LSU. The fans hope they aren't over looking Auburn. Led by the nations #3 ranked defense LSU has muscled their way through this schedule since an opening day loss to #5 TCU. Auburn just game off a game where they drilled SEC newcomer Texas A&M 53-3. They also have just one loss in conference play and thats a ten point loss to UAB. A win can put Auburn right in the thick of things for the SEC West crown.

BLAZER WEEKLY

BLAZER'S LOOKING TO GET BETTER DURING BYE WEEK

BIRMINGHAM, AL -- UAB is enjoying the bye week, but Coach Travis Rhatigan was on the SEC conference call this week to talk about the bye week for the Blazers and getting ready for the big game against Georgia.Rhatigan talked about the type of atmosphere he hopes the UAB faithful will bring to the 12:30 game.
Rhatigan talked about the use of statistics in getting a picture of an opponent.
The extra week gives UAB an opportunity at “self-eval” in order to eliminate UAB’s own tendencies.
Rhatigan talked about the development of players including his freshmen quarterback Adam Dyks.

" This is a much needed bye week for Adam (Dyks) although we've been running the ball a lot the past few weeks its gonna come a time when we'll need him like he was at the beginning of the year, so we'll go over that film and improve his decision making."

The bye week includes recruiting, rehab and rest for the players to “regain some freshness,” and work to make the team better—Rhatigan referenced self-scouting.
We play against UAB in this open week,” Rhatigan said.



Recruiting:
Blazers grabbed their third commitment on the year when Adamsville native and Minor High School star Joe Little gave his verbal commitment. Little, teammates with fellow commit Carl Harvey is ranked the #27th best defensive end in the country. Given a three star rating from Sparq recruiting services Joe Little was also ranked the #1 defensive linemen in the state of Alabama. He was #15 in the Alabama Super 50.
"Any time you have a chance to grab the best player at his position in the state it speaks volumes for the respect these kids have for our program. We expect Little to come in and play for us."
Stated Head coach Travis Rhatigan

TOP GAMES FOR WEEK 11

#21 Georgia (6-2) at #3 UAB (8-0)

http://www.operationsports.com/forum...post2042719952
Last season was two teams finding themselves, this year a lot more is on the line as the winner will be in the driver seat for the SEC East title. UAB brings in the nations #10 ranked Defense (#3 SEC) while Georgia brings in the #2 rated offenses (#1 SEC) Quarterback Lionel Hood will need to redeem himself after throwing four interceptions in last years contest

#19 Utah (6-2) at #25 Stanford (7-2)
Stanford is chasing Oregon for the Division title while Utah is chasing USC for the South title. Both teams need a win to stay in the hunt. Both teams are also coming in with a three game winning streak should be a good one.

#15 Miami (6-2) at #10 Virginia Tech (6-2)
The Carroll led Hokies have ripped off four straight games and are tied for the Division lead with #21 Georgia Tech who they'll face in two weeks, but first they play host to a Miami Hurricane team who is still in the hunt even after losing starting quarterback Titus Allen for the season. Miami will need that #5 ranked defense against the run to stop M. Morgan of Virginia Tech. Morgan enters the game tied for second in the NCAA with 12 rushing touchdowns, stopping him will be key to Miami's success.




College Gameday: Game of the Week
#1 Alabama (8-0) at #6 LSU (7-1)
Just like the showdown in the SEC East the SEC West crown will pretty much be decided this Saturday when BAMA and LSU hook up. Quarterback B. Newton brings in the nations best TD/INT ratio into the game with 24/1 and will have to be flawless again against the SEC's #1 total defense who held Auburn to just 3 points a week ago. Bama's defense isnt bad Either coming into the game ranked #2. That defense will need to slow down a passing attack that has really come on in the past few weeks led by Porter (QB) and company. Tiger Stadium will be rocking this weekend thats for sure.

UAB PREPARES FOR LIONEL HOOD AND THE #21 GEORGIA BULLDOGS

( QUARTERBACK LIONEL HOOD FACES PRESSURE FROM BRANDON RICHARDSON #95 AND MARCUS LEAK #91 IN LAST YEARS CONTEST)

BIRMINGHAN, AL -- The 3rd-ranked University of Birmingham football team practiced inside Legion Stadium on Tuesday afternoon as it prepared for its home conference matchup against No. 21 Georgia on Saturday. Head coach Travis Rhatigan spoke with the media after practice and talked about what the team needs to do to be successful this weekend against Georgia's defense.
"It's going to be important that our offensive line first understand the protection," Coach Rhatigan said. "But it is our receivers and quarterbacks that have to have the right timing in the passing game."
Coach Rhatigan also touched on the importance of having a lot of experience on the offensive side of the ball.
"We have mature kids, a lot of guys who have been around," Coach Rhatigan said. "They understand the way we are going to go about our business and the way the game goes."
The game with Georgia is the third ranked team coming to Birmingham and kicks off at 12:15 p.m. on CBS.



Coach Travis Rhatigan sat down with the Media Tuesday afternoon to answer questions about the upcoming game.


"The open week kind of hit us just right. I felt like the team needed a little bit of a break and they got fresh. They did a bit of work on rehabilitation, weight strength development and certainly had some very fundamental practices. I think the coaches needed a nice weekend. I watched football all weekend.
"Again the feel that this team has, they have the right mental and physical approach to big game. They are looking forward to working hard and preparing. We take some advantages into the game. We recognize that we are playing a real quality opponent. Our defense will be challenged against a potent passing attack. Scott Davis and Lionel Hood are very efficient and dominant players. Their defense is statistically as good as there is. We like the matchup. We think this will be a great challenge to our guys and a game of note. Any time you get into a game that is a big game, the piece that you want to do is to allow your guys to focus and prepare. That can be a distraction from within or a distraction from the perimeter. It is my job to eliminate any of that. I would like to minimize the media requirement on my players. I will understand the responsibility on me in that way. I want our guys to continue doing what they have been doing. I want them going out to practice wide-eyed, playing hard, having fun and playing as well as they are capable of. I think that is enough."


KEY CONFERENCE GAME
#21 GEORGIA (6-2) AT #3 UAB (8-0)

THE MATCH-UP
Both teams come in with explosives offenses. For Georgia Lionel Hood will come back to Legion field for the second straight year and looks to redeem his four interception game a year ago. He'll have good help in receiver Scott Davis. Davis leads the SEC in receiving yards with 1,064 and tied for touchdowns with 11. Hood is slowly gathering Heisman recognition with his 31 touchdowns and only 3 interceptions he also leads the SEC with over 2700 yards. Dont over look Georgia running game however as sophomore Ryan Wilson has helped take pressure off the passing attack with big runs on the ground this year his 653 yards rank him fifth in the conference to go along with his 9 rushing touchdowns. Georgia will need more help on defense from defenisve end Marcus Alexander. His play will be key to providing pressure in both the run and pass.
UAB is a mirror image of Georgia on offense with their one-two-three punch of quarterback Adam Dyks running back Mathew Scott and Ian Wilson at receiver. Matthew Scott the leader on this offense leads the SEC with 1,129 yards and 13 touchdowns, He's come on strong the last two weeks rushing for 386 yards in both games. Ian Wilson and Matt Ford have made big plays in the passing games but it will be UAB's #10 ranked defense #3 in the SEC that will have its hands tough. A young secondary playing with confidence and a mean pass rush will try to disrupt Georgia's attack.
