How to watch UAB vs. Jacksonville State in Week 1 | Live Streams, TV Channels, and more

    UAB looks to continue its winning ways in 2021 vs. Jacksonville State, but the Gamecocks are going to give them a run for their money.

    UAB shut down its program from 2015 to 2016, and all they’ve done since is win two Conference USA championships while going 34-16 in that span. They’re expected to repeat as champs this year, so why are they on upset alert? UAB vs. Jacksonville State should favor the Blazers, but there are similarities to a recent big-time upset that can’t be ignored. Let’s look at how to watch this intriguing Week 1 matchup including live streams, TV channels, and more.

    Bill Clark’s revival of the UAB program deserves more love than it will ever get, probably because everyone fears the Blazers in Conference USA. The Blazers win games by keeping their opponent off the scoreboard (21.4 points per game in 2020), and that trend should continue this season. All eyes move towards Tyler Johnston III to lead an offense capable of explosive plays, but it’s a group that needs to become more consistent.

    UAB plays host vs. Jacksonville State this week, but it’s not a pushover game by any means. The Gamecocks continue to produce Top 25 FCS teams, and this year won’t be different. A three-headed rushing attack is led by quarterback Zion Webb, joined in the backfield by Uriah West and Josh Samuel. UAB’s primary concern is to stop the run and force Webb to beat them with his arm.

    With the C-USA seemingly falling behind the rest of college football, a statement needs to be made. Jacksonville State can pull off the upset, even against UAB. Will UAB come back down to earth or continue its winning ways? Betting against Clark seems unwise, but overlooking Jacksonville State isn’t smart either.
