The UAB Blazers will meet the No. 7 LSU Tigers at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with kickoff set for 9 p.m. ET. The game is scheduled to air on ESPN2.
UAB has been inconsistent this season, but snapped a three-game losing streak with a win over North Texas. The Blazers are one win away from bowl eligibility and would love to get that against a top-10 LSU team. Interim head coach Bryant Vincent could use a strong showing here in an effort to get the temporary tag taken off him for this gig.
LSU escaped from Fayetteville with a 13-10 win over Arkansas to remain in first place in the SEC West. Jayden Daniels has taken a huge leap since the loss in the opener to Florida State and might be a preseason Heisman favorite if he returns to Baton Rouge next year.
