BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Saturday is a big deal for the UAB Blazers. It’s more than a rivalry game against Southern Mississippi, and there’s a lot is on the line.
“It’s been amazing to go from no program a couple years ago to The Return last year and have a success,” said David Crane, play-by-play announcer and the Voice of the Blazers.
“I’m not sure anyone really believed that UAB would be sitting here at 8-1 and a chance to possibly when its division and play for a championship,” he said.
For fans like Crane that fought tooth and nail to get the Blazers back on the field, these last two years have been exciting.
“To be on the edge of playing for a championship, it’s been spectacular,” he said.
The fun will continue Saturday. Fans are asked to fill the stands dressed in their white for a White Out event. The Blazers will also be dressed in all white with a special helmet in honor of military.
Kick-off is at 6:30 at Legion Field.
