I'm picking Tulane. I (obviously) hope I'm wrong but I think Fritz and his team are ready to make a step forward in year 3. He's too good of a coach to not produce in his 3rd year.
Score: Tulane 38 - UAB 31
Attendance: 28,000
Tulane= 35
UAB = 38

UAB kicks a FG as time expires for the win. This will be a physical game but we should run it down their throats till they choke.

MVP = Spenser Brown with 200+ rushing yards.

Att: 27,564 1/2
I'm taking UAB in this one and it's not the green Koolaid. I think UAB's running game will gas the Tulane defense in the fourth quarter. UAB wins a nail biter at the end and breaks Tulane's heart with a last minute touchdown drive to win 42-41.
This will be a tough game for us. Facing this kind of offense two weeks in a row will wear us down a little but hopefully we pull it out and start 3-0.
