2018 Football Season Poll: Week 5 - UAB (4-0) vs.La Tech
Thank you for voting in the Week 4 thread. UAB received 14 votes, Charlotte received no votes. UAB is now 4-0 on the season. The rest is copied and pasted from the previous thread but formatted to reflect Louisiana Tech. Please let me know if there's any other information you'd like to see in future weeks posts. I'll typically post the next game between 10am-noon CT the following day.

This is an offseason topic I've seen done elsewhere and really enjoyed so I thought I'd bring it here. Each day I'll post UAB's matchup with some information pertaining to the game, and you aselect who you think will win. If you'd like to play bonus, add your predictions for the following questions:
  • Final Score
  • Attendance Number
  • MVP

First true road game versus a school that should be our equal in talent. Hostile environment. Their fans coined the term CUAB. Plus we snatched victory from the jaws of defeat against them last season. If the referees are impartial, I think we can keep it close and hopefully have a chance. -30%

34-31 Blazers

BUT

If Skip and the line judge are drinking buddies, it will be a long day. - 70%

31-17 Tech. :-(

I clicked UAB but will change it to La Tech. This will be a revenge game and a tough road test in the middle of no where.

UAB = 37
La Tech = 40

MVP = Humidity

Yeah. This is the first game on the schedule I would be pretty surprised if we find a way to win. I’ll say 31-27 Tech.

I rate this game a toss up even with the revenge factor. If UAB comes in unencumbered by injuries to key players, we can win this game in a closely fought victory. By the end of November, this game may be seen as the team's "make or break" turning point game for the season.

UAB - 28
LA Tech - 24

MVP - D line
