BLAZER WEEKLY

BLAZERS ARRIVE:
UAB LANDS IN PASADENA, BEGINS PREPARATIONS FOR BCS NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

(FIRST TEAM ALL SEC DEFENSIVE LINEMEN #77 KAREEM KIRBY, #91 MARCUS LEAK, AND #55 TOM COX HOPE TO GET A HOLD OF HEISMAN WINNER JOSE ASHLEY)

PASADENA, CA - The UAB Blazers arrived in Pasadena on Thursday to begin preparation for next Thursday’s BCS National Championship game against Iowa.

The Blazers will hold their first of six practices at UCLA where both teams will split time at their practice facilities.

Everyone made the trip for the Blazers except sophomore receiver Matt Ford who is nursing a rupture disk in his back. Running back Matthew Scott who pulled his groin against Florida has been cleared to play and will split carries with Marcus Rutledge.
" The guys are excited about the upcoming opportunity to play." We watched some great football games the past week, we're also letting the guys go to tonights rose bowl game between Oregon and Maryland so the guys can get that itch back."
The Blazers are no strangers to big games as they were in the BCS title game a season ago in Miami but sqaundered the win giving up a NCAA championship game record of 8 rushing touchdowns and over 400 yards passing. Time will tell if the Blazers have fully erased that memory.

THURSDAY JANUARY 9TH, 2014

ON DECK:
#1 IOWA HAWKEYES AND #2 UAB BLAZERS PREPARE FOR WAR
Matchup Preview | January 9, 2013
@
#2 UAB Blazers
(13-0, Away)

#1 Iowa Hawkeyes
(13-0, Home)



PASADENA, CA - It's The Day, and if you are a Hawkeye fan or a Blazer fan, you know exactly what that means. It's the final game of the year and for the first time Iowa will play for a BCS National Championship. The UAB players and fan base are cocky and confident. They should be. But if Iowa plays like they are capable, the Blazer faithful might just realize what kind of program is being built in Iowa City.

MEET THE TEAMS:
IOWA: The Hawkeye's bring in a very solid 13-0 record. With wins over Georgia, Illinois twice and Wisconsin they undoubtedly belong here, meaning the road was not easy. Iowa offensively is led by running back Jose Ashley, the Heisman trophy winner. He does more than just run the football for the Hawkeye's, he catches passes out the back field and more importantly he's a threat in the return game. Tight end Brian Brooks does a great job complimenting the run game with his pass catching ability he will be a key for the offense.
Defensively Iowa has one of the toughest defense in the country. Ranked 7th in the land Iowa only gives up 209.2 yards per game. All American linebacker Antone Newton leads the team and the Big Ten with 105 tackles (42 solo) In fact all three of Iowa's starting linebackers are in the top five tackles in the conference. They dont take the ball away but they dont give up big plays either.

UAB: The Blazers bring into this game the top scoring offense in the country at 42.8 points a game. But as of late it's been their running game getting most of the attention. The Blazers will bring a two headed monster attack from their backfield to the game as both Matthew Scott and Marcus Rutledge will see time and get carries. What makes this offense scary however is that teams have to account for a very good receiving core led by Ian Wilson, Wilson has caught 17 touchdwons earning a spoot on the All America team.
Defensively for the Blazers this is one of the finest units in the country. They had four Blazers named to the All American teams. Linebacker Timi McCollum gets all the credit but this may be the best defensive line in all of college football. Tom Cox, Kareem Kirby, Marcus Leak and Brandon Richardson all have at least 7 sacks.

KEYS TO THE GAME:
For Iowa they need to mix it up on offense, UAB has the #1 ranked rush defense in the country. Iowa will need to find away to back off this unit so they can run the football. On defense they need to apply pressure on freshmen quarterback Adam Dyks, despite him having a good year he has thrown 18 interceptions. Pressure on him could change the whole outcome of the game.
For UAB they need to smart on defense, This unit is very aggressive and could get caught trying to stop Iowa's run game. The secondary are superb athletes and UAB should have them disguise coverage and confuse Iowa into making a mistake.
Offensively UAB has struggle their past two games in the air, they will need the pass game to work if they want to be successful against a smart Iowa defense.

BLAZER'S FALL TO HAWKEYE'S

IN THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP, UAB EXPERIENCES THE LOWS OF ANOTHER BCS TITLE GAME LOSS

________________
ASSOCIATED PRESS_

PASADENA, CA -
UAB players walked slowly off the field, failing to dodge falling confetti. A few strands stuck on their tears.
An emotional, improbable ride to the top of the college football world ended, forcing the Blazers to finally experience the lows of a loss.
Thursday, it found a team it could not physically dominate. It found a team that interrupted its ascension to the elite standing it has recently held.
No. 2 UAB found No. 1 Iowa, and the result was a gut-wrenching 31-28 loss in the BCS Championship Game in front of a standing room only crowd of 103,892 at the Rose Bowl.
"It's just disappointing right now," said senior receiver Ian Wilson, his eyes red and puffy. "Everybody is just taking it so hard. This game meant so much."
When it ended, the workman like Hawkeye's (14-0) mugged for cameras and discussed the Championship game, reveling in turning a 28-24 deficit into an 3-point win in a resounding fourth quarter with just 1:57 seconds left. UAB went quietly into the locker room.
"Bittersweet" is how UAB's Timi McCollum described it.
Iowa held the ball for 4 minutes in the fourth quarter and went ahead on a Davis to Reynold's 22-yard touchdown pass. When Heisman Trophy winner Jose Ashley found the end zone earlier in the fourth you could see all momentum shift toward Iowa.

(IOWA'S REYNOLDS GRABS HIS ONLY CATCH OF THE GAME, THIS ONE FOR THE WIN)

"We ran out of gas in the fourth quarter," said coach Travis Rhatigan, who took a 4-8 team in 2010 and molded it into back to back National Championship berths.
Iowa's Davis passed for 124 yards and what turned out to be the game winning touchdown pass, but it was Heisman winning running back Jose Ashley who stole the show. As the teams went into halftime, UAB found themselves up 14-10 after two Dyks to Jackson touchdown tosses.
UAB held Iowa to just 69 yards of total offense in the half.
"We didnt play good at all in that first half." Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said. "But at half time I told our guys look, we were terrible in that first half but we're still in."
Ashley, who had 22 yards on 7 carries through the first two quarters exploded in the third for touchdown runs of 35 yards and 58 yards giving Iowa a 24-14 lead mid-way through the third quarter.

(ASHLEY SCORE'S FROM 58 YARDS OUT GIVING IOWA THE 10-POINT ADVANTAGE IN THE THIRD QUARTER)

UAB could not get their running game going. In his first game back since pulling his groin Matthew Scott rushed for 21 times for 87 yards. Meanwhile Rutledge, who has shined in Scott's absence carried the ball 12 times for 33 yards that included a one yard plunge in the third quarter putting UAB down 24-21.
The game changing play came about 6 minutes to go in the final quarter, UAB battled back and took a four point lead up 28-24, UAB was on a drive that would put the final stamps on their first national championship, but Iowa Linebacker Antone Newton delivered a bone crunching hit on Scott forcing UAB's first turnover of the night which resulted in Iowa's four minute drive that saw them convert 4 for 4 on third downs and taking the slim 31-28 lead.

(NEWTON FORCED THIS FUMBLE GIVING IOWA A CHANCE AT THE LEAD)

"The tables completely turned right there." Said Rhatigan, "We clearly outplayed them, but they made plays at the right times and they're the champs."
UAB would still drive down to Iowa's 14 yard line, well within range for a field goal. But two huge back to back sacks saw UAB facing a third and long with one time-out left, anxious to get some yards back Freshmen quarterback Adam Dyks would make his first mistake all night throwing a interception to Iowa corner Paul Causey who would immediately fall to the ground giving the Hawkey's the win.

(CAUSEY JUMPS THIS PASS INTENDED FOR RALPH RAWLS AND SEALING THE VICTORY FOR IOWA)

UAB quarterback Adam Dyks was 12 of 25 for 227 yards with three touchdowns and that interception that ended UAB's last drive.Junior Vince Jackson led the Blazers with 3 catches for 91 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively McCollum had a game high 9 tackles and a sack.
Iowa's Heisman trophy winner Jose Ashley who had 22 yards in the first half ended the game with 194 yards on the ground.

Brutal loss, can't believe it ended this way yet again. Has to be tough for the seniors to go out like that, but you have a strong core returning so hopefully you'll find your way back to the title game again next year.
