UAB Blazers vs. Northern Illinois Huskies, Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl. The Blazers are favorites for this bowl, but the Huskies champions of the West Division in the MAC are also a team with good offense and chances to surprise Boca Raton. The season was good for the Huskies, but much better for the Blazers who finished the regular season with more victories than the Huskies and with better numbers in offense and defense.
UAB Blazers: Superiority.
The Blazers are favorites to win the bowl, the regular season finished 10-3-0 for the Blazers. The best thing about the season for the Blazers was the huge winning streak of eight weeks between the third and the first week. The Blazers are scoring an average of 29.3 points per game, the defense allows less than 20 points, only 17.3 per game. The Blazers have been superior in Rushes and Yards, but with problems in the completions and the number of passes per game.
Tyler Johnston will have an important role tonight, despite not being the starter in all games, Johnston had an important performance in many games. In the Johnston season he left an average of 56.8% in completions, 950 yards, 7 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. The important thing is that Johnston is a highly mobile QB, up to 80 rushes with 331 yards for a total of four touchdowns.
Northern Illinois Huskies: Talent.
The Huskies had a couple of problems in the last three games of the regular season. In the last three weeks the Huskies could barely win a game, but it was an important game against the best team at the MAC Conference. The Huskies closed the season 6-2 in the West division being the best on Toledo, and 8-5 overall in the regular season.
The problem of the Huskies has been offensive, only 20.7 points per game and the defensive perite up to 21.5 points per game. Against Buffalo they won 30-29, they could hardly win that game against the best of the MAC.
Marcus Childers has had a good year, 57.6% in completions, 1996 yards, 15 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Childers is also a good runner, the regular season with 176 rushes for 496 yards with a total of six touchdowns for the Huskies.
