His final touchdown to Trea Shropshire came on 4th-and-7 with 6:17 remaining in the fourth quarter which ultimately proved to be the game-winning score.
 
Sophomore sensation DeWayne McBride ran for 183 yards and a touchdown, helping UAB outgain the nation's 17-ranked offense 412-394. McBride finished his sophomore campaign with 1,371 rushing yards the third most in a single season at UAB, and 13 touchdowns the second most.

Should have been 3-1 if the Herd didn't have the 4th quarter meltdown.

BUT, after going winless last season, at least C-USA is already at 3-2 overall.

The BYU win by UAB which is a 13th ranked team is huge for the six teams transferring to the AAC.

It obviously was a defensive game for the most part, but did anyone notice how ULL beat Marshall? They must have seen our film…

Three long balls - all of which were caught - set up scores.

We dropped ours.  :Crying:

FRISCO BOWL FINAL:

#24 San Diego State 38  UTSA 24

San Diego State (12-2) scored 17 unanswered points over the midway point of the game to erase a 14-7 deficit and cruise to a 38-24 victory over UTSA in the Frisco Bowl on Tuesday night.

The Roadrunners (12-2) were without over a dozen regular players due to injury, illness, and COVID protocols, and also missed leading rusher Sincere McCormick and cornerback Tariq Woolen who forwent the contest to prepare for the NFL draft.

The Aztecs edged out UTSA in both passing (+62) and rushing  (+33) yards.

Conference USA is now 3-4 for the 2021 bowl season with one more game remaining. North Texas will take on Miami (OH) on ESPN Thursday at 3:30 PM EST.

Texas A&M just pulled out of Gator Bowl due to Covid. Wonder how that works its way out. Feel bad for Wake. Awesome if we could sneak into a bowl game if they replace them with UF/UCF (and we naturally take their spot) 😝
