It’s hard to believe that we are just 86 days away from the Return of UAB football. With that, there has been a lot of news come out recently about the program.

  • Most recently, the game times and television schedule was released for UAB football. Their first game of the season will start at 2:30 p.m. CT and be played on Stadium (formerly ASN and Campus Insiders). The week two game at Ball State will start at 2 p.m. CT and be on ESPN3. The North Texas, Middle Tennessee and Charlotte games will all start at 5:30 p.m. CT and be shown on beIN SPORTS.
  • Georgia Southern announced that they will play a home-and-home series with UAB starting in 2022. The two teams have never faced each other before. UAB will host Georgia Southern on Sept. 17, 2022 and make the trip to Statesboro on Sept. 9, 2023.
  • Back in May we got a look at the new Under Armor football uniforms for UAB.

  • Also in May, the Blazers picked up another commitment for 2017 when Tre’ Crawford decided to play for UAB. He is a 6-foot-3, 225-pound linebacker that should be able to help the defense immediately coming from Tyler Junior College in Texas.
  • UAB head football coach Bill Clark continues to make friends in the Birmingham area as he donated 100 season tickets to Big Brothers Big Sisters.
  • And here is a look at the new UAB football practice facility posted on May 31 by @uabhack98.
