Free NCAA Pick Saturday

#379 UAB +9.5 over Louisiana Tech 6:00 PM CT

The Bulldogs are finally at home for a FBS game for the first time this season. The past two road games have been very important tests as this could be a bit of a flat spot on the schedule after holding on for a huge division win last week over North Texas, while playing at LSU the previous week. Last week’s upset featured some good fortune as Louisiana Tech was soundly out-gained while getting two turnovers while blocking what would have been the game-winning field goal. UAB won 23-22 hosting this matchup last season with Louisiana Tech missing an extra-point after seemingly tying the game in the final minutes.

UAB has been a great home team of late but in the last road game the Blazers lost by 23 to Coastal Carolina. The Blazers shouldn’t be ruled out in C-USA yet as this was a team that many pegged for a division title after last year’s resurgence. The defense has allowed just 31 points the past two games while UAB is a dangerous rushing team posting 5.2 yards per rush. Louisiana Tech is 103rd nationally in rushing yards at this point in the season as the road underdog is a threat to post a significant edge on the ground after posting 178 rushing yards in this matchup last season. Ruston has a perception as a difficult place to play but the Bulldogs are 3-5 ATS with four S/U losses at home since the start of last season, actually just 2-4 S/U the last six home games vs. FBS competition. UAB is 11-6 ATS since bringing football back last season and this Blazers team is a threat for an upset in a dangerous spot for Louisiana Tech.
