Blazer Almanac 11/29
November 29

UAB Football
The Almanac coverage of past regular season football games are winding down, but November 29 has three games played on that date. UAB is 2-1 on this date.

**2003 - UAB traveled to Houston and was beaten badly 56-28. To finish the season 5-7. It was the second straight year UAB had failed to qualify for a bowl game in the final game of the year.

**2008 - UAB traveled to Orlando to play Central Florida. It was all Swayze Waters as he was the only player on either team to score. The UAB kicker kicked 5 field goals to give UAB a 15-0 win. The Blazers finished the season 4-8.

**2014 - UAB played Southern Miss on the road and won 45-24, becoming bowl eligible in Bill Clark's first year. Jordan Howard set a school record 262 rushing yards. It was the first time in 10 years UAB was bowl eligible but hearts were heavy and a storm was brewing amid speculation that the football program would be shut down. As we all know, UAB did not participate in a bowl game that year because three days later, UAB president Ray Watts slammed the door on UAB's football future. It was not to be though, because UAB fans and supporters pried the door back open and football was restored.
