No. 13 Houston (8-0, 4-0) looks to continue their surge up the BCS standings as they travel Conference USA foe UAB (1-7, 21-4). The Cougars are on an absolute tear this year as they rank No. 1 in passing yards per game and points per game.  

Where: Legion Field; Birmingham, Ala. 

When: Saturday, Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. ET

Watch: Check local listings.

Radio Station: Sports Radio 610 AM Houston. Check local stations, UAB.

Betting Line: According to Bodog.eu, it’s Houston -28.5. Take the Cougars, as they are No. 1 in points scored and UAB is No. 112 in points against.

Who Might Not Play For Houston: WR Tyron Carrier is dealing with a leg injury, but has not kept him out of action. Houston may want to rest the speedy receiver this week against a weaker opponent. 

Who Might Not Play for UAB: QB Brian Ellis still has a wrist injury that will sideline him for the year.

Key Storyline

Can Houston QB Case Keenum throw for more than nine touchdowns? He threw for that many against Rice last week.

BCS Implications

For Houston, they will win this game easily, and will continue to rise up the BCS standings. They may crack the Top 10 with a win that sees Houston hang 80 on the Blazers.  

Houston Player to Watch: QB Case Keenum

Like we said earlier, he threw for nine touchdowns last week. He may throw for 19 on Saturday night. 

UAB Player to Watch: QB Jonathan Perry

Perry has had a good year for the Blazers, as he has started the last two games, throwing for more than 200 yards in each game. 

Key Matchup: Houston’s QB Case Keenum vs. the UAB secondary.

Case will throw for another ridiculous amount of touchdown passes this week and may go over the 600-yard passing mark. Watch out NCAA record books because Case is about to break a few more single-game records on Saturday.

Prediction: Houston 70, UAB 24
