Result: UAB beat BYU 31-28. Dylan Hopkins threw for three touchdowns and DeWayne McBride rushed for 183 yards and a score.

The BYU Cougars take on the UAB Blazers in the Independence Bowl on Saturday, December 18th. Kickoff from Independence Stadium in Shreveport, Louisiana is set for 3:30 p.m. ET.

The Cougars (10-2 Independent) looked poised to make a CFP run, but with two losses sandwiched between five-game win streaks, it was too little too late for the Cougars to try and get in. BYU sophomore running back Tyler Allgeier lead their offense with 1,414 rushing yards and 20 touchdowns on 249 carries.

The Blazers (8-4, 6-2 C-USA) are outmatched on paper in this one, but that hasn’t stopped them this season. Every time they tried to get a run going, they would win two games in a row and then take a loss. In their final game of the season, UAB took down UTEP 42-25. It will be a team effort for the Blazers if they hope to keep up in this one.
