The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) has been an autonomous member of the University of Alabama system since 1969, and has had an intercollegiate athletic program since 1977. UAB is sometimes confused with the University of Alabama (Crimson Tide), which is located in Tuscaloosa; while this is inevitable, it is important to note that the two are indeed separate institutions. In addition, the UAB name is often altered by various media, opponents, merchandisers, etc. Please note that there are only two correct versions of our name, the acronym “UAB,” or the full “University of Alabama at Birmingham.” In addition, the Associated Press sports stylebook now uses UAB on first reference, not Alabama-Birmingham. We are not: Alabama-Birmingham, Ala.-Birmingham, or U.A.B. 2011 UAB Schedule Date Opponent Time Opp. 2010 Record Sept. 10 at Florida (FSN) 7:00 p.m. ET 8-5 (4-4) Sept. 17 TULANE* 3:00 p.m. CT 4-8 (2-6) Sept. 24 at East Carolina* TBA 6-7 (5-3) Oct. 1 at Troy TBA 8-5 (6-2) Oct. 8 MISSISSIPPI STATE (FSN) 11:00 a.m. CT 9-4 (4-4) Oct. 15 at Tulsa* (CBSSN) 7:00 p.m. CT 10-3 (6-2) Oct. 20 UCF* (CSS) 7:00 p.m. CT 11-3 (7-1) Oct. 29 at Marshall* (CSS) 12:00 p.m. ET 5-7 (4-4) Nov. 5 HOUSTON* (CBSSN) (HC) 6:00 p.m. CT 5-7 (4-4) Nov. 12 at Memphis* (CSS) 3:15 p.m. CT 1-11 (0-8) Nov. 17 SOUTHERN MISS* (CBSSN) 7:00 p.m. CT 8-5 (5-3) Nov. 26 at Florida Atlantic TBA 4-8 (3-5) * Conference USA Game Times listed are local to site and subject to change 2

Media Information Note To The Media The 2011 UAB Football Media Guide has been assembled in an effort to assist you in your coverage of the Blazers this fall and throughout the year. We have tried to anticipate many of your questions and hope the answers can easily be found on the following pages. However, if you have additional questions or needs, please do not hesitate to contact the UAB Athletics Media Relations Office (205/934-0722). We appreciate your interest in UAB football and look forward to working with you throughout the year. We have certain policies and procedures that we ask you to abide by. These policies and procedures are designed to take your needs as well as the needs of our student-athletes and coaches into consideration and create a good working situation for all.

minutes. Media may return to the practice field to conduct post-practice interviews with Coach Callaway and/or players. Media must contact the Athletics Media Relations Office ahead of time when planning to attend practice and to confirm practice times, etc. Contact the Athletics Media Relations Office with specific interview requests. Taped interviews may be conducted before or after practice only with prior arrangement through the Media Relations Office.

Coach Interviews All requests for interviews with head coach Neil Callaway and his staff should be made through the Athletics Media Relations Office. Please contact Associate AD for Media Relations Norm Reilly to make the necessary arrangements.

Social Media Websites UAB Athletics has quickly developed its social media network. Fans and media who follow the Blazers can follow the UAB program through several social media web sites. The social media websites work in conjunction with UABsports.com, the official online source for Blazer athletics.

Player Interviews Interviews with our student-athletes are encouraged. All player interviews, without exception, must be arranged through the Media Relations Office. This policy is intended to ensure that all requests are filled, as well to ensure that interviews are conducted at the best time for both the media representative and the player. Players are usually available after practice, depending upon class schedules. During game weeks, no player interviews will be allowed after Wednesday. For UAB’s two Thursday night game this season, the cutoff date for player interviews for that week will be earlier and will be announced at a later time. Telephone interviews may also be arranged. Every effort will be made to arrange telephone interviews, but player telephone numbers will not be given out. Student-athletes are instructed not to participate in telephone interviews unless they are arranged through the Athletics Media Relations Office. Football Practices On most days during the season, UAB football practices are open to the media only for the first 30

Dorms, Locker Rooms & Training Rooms Student-athletes’ dorm rooms and apartments, the locker room, the training rooms and weight rooms are off limits at all times to everyone except authorized personnel. The same policy applies to the UAB locker room at Legion Field and at road venues.

Photographers are restricted to the areas outside the 25-yard lines on both sidelines and the end zones; no photography - still or video is allowed in the team areas of either sideline. Photographers who enter the team area are subject to forfeiture of credentials. Failure to comply with established photography guidelines may result in forfeiture of credentials for that game and jeopardize future credential privileges.

A Proud History; A Promising Future Conference USA was formed in 1995 and quickly emerged as one of the nation’s top conferences. The conference unveiled its name, logo and commissioner on April 24, 1995 in Chicago. The league’s charter members included Charlotte, Cincinnati, DePaul, Houston, Louisville, Marquette, Memphis, Saint Louis, Southern Miss, Tulane, UAB and USF. Eleven of the institutions began athletic participation in 1995, while Houston joined competition in the fall of 1996. The league’s headquarters were established in Chicago and after nine years, relocated to the current office in Irving, Texas. Britton Banowsky was named Commissioner in October 2002, succeeding Mike Slive, the league’s first commissioner. C-USA added East Carolina (September, 1996) and the United States Military Academy (March, 1997) as football members. ECU began league competition in 1997; Army in 1998 and UAB began football play in 1999. The league added TCU and ECU (1999) for all sports and they began competition in 2001. USF started C-USA football in 2003. After celebrating its 10th Anniversary during the 2004-05 season, C-USA began a new chapter in 2005-06 when its current membership came together to form the new look of the league. Since its formation, C-USA has established a strong foundation, an identity and a history that reflects the league’s national presence. Fifteen years of remarkable history has reinforced the league’s position in collegiate athletics, setting the course for the next decade and beyond. 2011-12 Conference USA Bowl Tie-Ins Bowl

UAB in the

Community T

he Blazer football team is just one example of the UAB Athletic Department’s commitment to helping, serving and donating to the Birmingham community. UAB takes great pride in giving back to a community that gives so much to it. UAB football has stepped up as one of the leaders in community outreach, participating in a wide variety of projects and activities throughout the year. One of the Blazers’ continuing efforts is weekly visits to the Children’s

20

Hospital during the spring. Every week, several players and coaches spend quality time with patients and families at the Children’s Hospital. Other community service ventures recently had included UAB’s Classroom Connection, volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House and joining with local radio station 95.7 to help clean up a Birmingham-area elementary school.

U

AB’s Strength and Conditioning program, the Blazers’ staff and student-athletes can now boast of having one of the finest facilities around. The new center opened in January of 2008 and houses a 10,000 square-foot weight room that features more than 40,000 pounds of free weights. Strength and conditioning coach Steve Martin and his staff work with members of the Blazer football team to develop training pro-

grams and enhance each athlete’s performance. Martin, who has more than 20 years experience in the area of strength and conditioning, joined the UAB staff in January, 2007. His vast amount of experience covers time spent at four Division I universities. In addition to his current role at UAB, Martin has also spent time at Alabama, TCU and Auburn. Martin and the Blazers moved into their new strength and conditioning area in Bell Gymnasium, more than tripling the size of

the area they had utilized previously in Bartow Arena. The bright and spacious weight room area includes state-of-the-art equipment for weight training, stretching and conditioning workouts. Martin and the staff use a variety of techniques to assist the Blazers in achieving maximum performance and potential. With a heavy emphasis on Olympic style weightlifting, the program concentrates on speed, power, and strength.

programs and expert specialists among the best in America. The Medical Director of UAB Sports Medicine is Dr. William Garth, an orthopedic surgeon. He is responsible for all services provided to student-athletes. General medical care is provided by Dr. Brenda Baumann and Dr. Marshall Crowther. In the fall of 2008, the Wallace Building Athletic Training Room opened. The 9,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility offers the finest therapeutic modalities and rehabilitative equipment.

he state-of-the-art, $25 million Campus Recreation Center has covered all the bases. It boasts 18,000 square feet of weight and fitness space outfitted with all-new equiptment and a one-eighth-mile oval running track that juts out of the building, curving toward University Boulevard and 15th Street South to provide panoramic views of the campus. And just to make sure no one gets bored, planners added a five-story, rock-climbing wall. The facility features four basketball courts, five racquetball courts, one of which converts to a squash court and a multi-purpose court that can be used for indoor soccer, volleyball, floor hockey or badminton. There are also four aerobic rooms and a swimming pool with four lap lanes and leisure and physical rehabilitation areas. The handicap-accessible pool has many special features. A continuous current in the “lazy river” carries swimmers around the outer edge of the pool in inner tubes – the ride ends under a waterfall – or individuals can walk against the flow as a part of a physical rehabilitation program. For more intense resistance training, center members can use the “vortex,” a circular area within the pool with forceful water jets.

One of the four aerobics rooms is dedicated to spinning; the others host Pilates, general aerobics, yoga, step, and kickboxing classes along with other specialty offerings. The facility also includes the Kids Zone, a supervised area – equipped with toys, books, and movies – where parents can drop off children while they work out. The center also has

a juice bar, wireless internet access, and an Outdoor Pursuits Center that rents camping gear and leads backpacking, rafting, and skiing trips to desitnations around the United States. The first floor houses a wellness center that coordinates with UAB groups to offer nutritional counseling, body-fat measurements, personal training, and general fitness assessments.

Birmingham The Magic City

The statue of Vulcan — Roman God of Fire and Iron — is the symbol of the city of Birmingham.

W

ith a population of more than 230,000 (more than one million in the metropolitan area), Birmingham has a strong, diverse, service-oriented economy and is recognized as a Southeast leader. Founded shortly after the Civil War, Birmingham rapidly became known as “The Magic City” because of its phenomenal

rate of industrial growth in its beginning. Its mountainous strata and forest surrounding the city are rich with ore deposits, and it was that natural wealth that quickly transformed young Birmingham into a bustling steel metropolis. Today, Birmingham continues to earn the distinction, “The Magic City,” but this tribute is due to the city’s economic competitiveness, technological advancements and quality of life — offerings which are sought after by professionals with an eye toward the future. Birmingham has been recognized as one of America’s “Most Livable Cities” by the U.S. Conference of Mayors — as recently as 1993. Birmingham’s strategic location and diverse economy position the city as one of tremendous opportunity and growth. Centrally located and the largest municipality in Ala­bama, the city is home to a number of renowned individuals who have made an impression on the nation and the world in music and entertainment, education, medicine and sports, to name a few. There is never a lack of cultural entertainment in “The Magic City”. Dozens of neighborhood and city-wide festivals, museums, parks, sports competitions and much more provide unlimited activity and amusement. Residents and visitors to Birmingham enjoy the city’s recreational and historical attractions such as the Birmingham Zoo, Birmingham Botanical Gardens,

Vulcan Park, Sloss Furnaces, Southern Museum of Flight and the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame. Sports enthusiasts will never be at a loss for activity at the heart of the “Football Capital of the South.” UAB plays all of its home football games at historic Legion Field, which also was the site of preliminary round soccer matches at the 1996 Summer Olympic Games. Professional athletic teams in the area include the Class-AA Birmingham Barons (baseball). Several annual fests are held in Birmingham. The biggest is City Stages, held each spring in the downtown City Center. City Stages attracts nearly a quarter of a million people for a three-day weekend of unlimited music. All of this and more makes Birmingham “The Magic City” to residents and visitors year-round.

The Birmingham Civil Rights Museum stands as a reminder of the past and a beacon of hope for the future.

2011 Season Outlook

Blazers Anxious To Get New Season Started; Plenty Of Experience Returns, New Leadership On Defense

F

or those observers who believe that the results of close games tend to balance out over the long haul, then things are looking up for the UAB Blazers as they head into the 2011 football season. Last season began with a one-point home loss to Florida Atlantic and ended with a five-point road defeat at Rice. In between were four other contests decided by five points or less, plus a home loss to East Carolina when the Blazers led the Pirates with six minutes to go. Yes, there were plenty of close games last fall and unfortunately for UAB and its faithful, the ball didn’t bounce their way in most of those nail-biters. But now with the 2011 season looming, the Blazers have put the disappointment of last fall’s 4-8 record behind them and there is excitement building around the program. Head coach Neil Callaway’s team is looking forward to a fully-stocked scholarship roster for arguably the first time in his tenure. The Blazers return a combined 16 starters on offense (7) and defense (9), including a pair of preseason firstteam All-Conference USA selections in offensive tackle Matt McCants (6-7, 295, Sr.) and defensive tackle Elliott Henigan (6-4, 280, Sr.). Quarterback Bryan Ellis (6-2, 200, Sr.) has experience on his resume now after starting the final nine games of the season and throwing for

2,940 yards and 25 touchdowns. There’s much anticipation on the defensive side of the ball as well as Callaway hired veteran and highly-respected Tommy West as the team’s defensive coordinator last winter. Here are some additional reasons for optimism surrounding the Blazers and the 2011 season: ** Ellis will lead a UAB offense that posted the second-highest yardage total in school history (5,074). He passed for more than 350 yards on four occasions in 2010. ** The Blazers can’t be labeled a pass-happy team, however. Doak Walker Award candidate Pat Shed (5-9, 175, Sr.) made quite an impact last season in his first campaign in the Green and Gold, rushing for 847 yards and setting a UAB record for receptions (47) by a running back. He finished third in the nation in all-purpose yards average (177.1). ** And the offense has a solid foundation up front as McCants and his O-line mates boast an abundance of experience. The Blazers return five offensive linemen who have significant starting experience. ** On defense there is depth and experience at linebacker and in the secondary. Linebacker Marvin Burdette (5-11, 230, Jr.) emerged as one of the best in C-USA at his position in 2010 as 45

he finished with 114 tackles. Henigan is one of the top defensive linemen in the conference. Offense The Blazers averaged 422 yards per game last season to rank No. 30 in the final NCAA statistics. Heading into 2011, it appears they’ll have plenty of weapons on hand to again put up impressive numbers. And perhaps most importantly, unlike last season when the quarterback situation was undecided until midway through fall camp, this year there’s no disputing who is at the top of the depth chart coming out of spring and heading into the new campaign. Quarterback Ellis became the Blazers’ starter at quarterback in the fourth game of the 2010 season and put up some lofty numbers. He finished the campaign with 2,940 passing yards, hitting at a 56 percent clip. Ellis connected on 25 touchdown passes with 12 interceptions. It was in the third game of the season vs. Troy when Ellis came off the bench and led the Blazers to a thrilling 34-33 victory over the Trojans. He finished with 360 passing yards and three touchdown tosses in the game, including a 44-yard

2011 Season Outlook both been in the program the past two seasons. It was Perry who appeared to have moved into the No. 2 position in the latter stages of spring practice. UAB also signed one quarterback in its 2011 recruiting class, Austin Brown (6-1, 195, Fr.) of Flowery Branch, Ga. Running Back The UAB rushing game posted one of its best totals (1,870 yards) in school history, and unlike the previous two seasons when the Blazers surpassed the 2,000-yard mark on the strength of QB Joe Webb accounting for a majority of the production, the yardage count attained in 2010 was largely attributed to running backs. Shed played in his first season at UAB after transferring from the junior college ranks and made the most of the opportunity. Shed rushed for 847 yards — fourth-best total by a Blazer RB in school history — and also led Quarterback Bryan Ellis solidified his role as the Blazers’ the team in receptions starting signal-caller as the 2010 season progressed. He with 47, a UAB record finished the campaign with 2,940 passing yards and 25 for a running back. touchdown tosses.

He went for 125 yards on 20 room for improvement. Ellis has worked hard attempts in the Blazers’ victory over Memphis. UAB’s rushing attack has also been bolstered to improve his on-field decision-making and cut by the addition of Dontavius Jackson (5-10, 205, down on miscues.

Greg Franklin (5-11, 180, So.) played his first season for the Blazers in 2010 as a true freshman and saw limited action. But Franklin showed considerable promise when he got on the field, averaging 4.8 yards per attempt on 11 carries. Franklin also was impressive during spring drills and is listed No. 2 among the running backs entering fall preseason practice. Daniel Borne and Justin Brooks were both seniors in 2010 and combined for 490 yards and four touchdowns last fall. Their contributions spelling Shed at times will be missed, but Franklin and Jackson look like they will help give UAB a potent trio of running backs. Wide Receiver The Blazer receiving corps will be without Frantrell Forrest for the first time in five seasons in 2011. Forrest finished his UAB career with 164 catches for 2,215 yards, second and third-best, respectively, in Blazer history. His 20-touchdown total is the third-highest mark in school lore. Another departed senior, Mike Jones, enjoyed a breakout year in 2010, catching 38 passes for 531 yards and a team-best seven TD receptions. On the surface, it might appear that UAB

Patrick Hearn is coming off a breakout season at receiver. He had 35 catches for 536 yards in 11 starts last season.

2011 Season Outlook would feel a large drop in its production at the receiver position, but despite the losses of Forrest and Jones, the Blazers have a talented group of receivers returning for the 2011 season. Junior Patrick Hearn (6-1, 180, Jr.) started 11-of-12 games and ranked fourth on the team with 35 receptions for 536 yards and four touchdowns. Hearn posted the Blazers’ top game yardagewise during the season as he had 123 receiving yards against Memphis.

It will be an area to watch during preseason camp as several newcomers will have an opportunity to compete for playing time.

He’s already been chosen as a 2011 preseason first-team all-league lineman by the C-USA head coaches. Cody Payne (6-6, 260, Jr.) saw some action on the D-line for the Blazers last season in his first year at UAB. Deric Scott (6-3, 275, So.) is a promising tackle who saw limited playing time in 2010 but will likely see more this fall. Adam Arthur (6-2, 275, Sr.) has seen action on both sides of the ball during his career. Defensive End With Bryant Turner having departed after his senior season, the Blazers will be without one of their most experienced defensive players.

Connor Boyett (6-5, 250, So.) made seven starts at defensive end as a true freshman in 2010 and will again be counted on this coming season. Boyett finished with 21 tackles, including 2.5 tackles for loss and a sack last season. Chris Walton (6-3, 220, R-Fr.) is a young end who will have the opportunity to emerge in 2011. Jamie Onufrak (6-6, 235, R-Fr.) was redshirted in 2010 in his first season in Birmingham. He has since been moved from tight end to defensive end. Among the newcomers, there are several players who could move up on the depth chart as the season unfolds, including Jewel Christian (6-2, 290, Jr.), Trey Grissett (6-5, 230, Fr.), Mickey Jackson (6-1, 308, Fr.), Diaheem Watkins (6-4, 230, Fr.), Tevin Wells (6-2, 285, Jr.) and Daron Wright (6-2, 255, Fr.).

2011 Season Outlook

A pair of junior linebackers will again be heavily counted on in 2011 as Marvin Burdette (left) and Daniel White return after combining for 21 starting assignments last season. Burdette was among the Conference USA leaders in tackles with 114 while White contributed 55 to tie for third on the Blazer defense.

Linebacker The Blazers return several players with experience at linebacker, led by junior Burdette. Burdette led the team in tackles in 2010 with 114 stops and averaged 13 tackles in the final five games of the season. His tackle total represented the most by a UAB linebacker since the 2003 season. Daniel White (6-2, 220, Jr.) started nine games last season as he contributed 55 tackles to tie Henigan for third on the team. Lamanski Ware (6-2, 225, Sr.), Greg Irvin (5-11, 210, Jr.) and Drew Luker (6-3, 210, Sr.) have all started during their careers and will compete for starting jobs in 2010. Ware started 11 games two seasons ago as a sophomore, but his junior campaign was hindered by injuries as he appeared in only seven contests and had just 15 tackles compared to 71

he recorded in 2009. Patrick Bastien (6-3, 210, So.) played as a true freshman in 2009, starting a pair of games, but was redshirted last season. There is a lot of anticipation to see what D.A. Autry (6-0, 230, Jr.) can contribute after he sat out 2010 to concentrate on academics after transferring from junior college. He had an outstanding spring practice and is slated to see significant playing time this fall. Cornerback Both starting cornerbacks — T.J. Ballou (6-0, 200, Sr.) and Marquis Coleman (6-1, 185, Sr.) — are returning for senior seasons in 2011 while Terrell Springs (5-10, 180, Sr.), who has started 22 games in his career, is also back for his final year. Cornelius Richards (6-1, 180, Jr.), Andre Hicks (5-9, 175, Sr.) and Caleb Lester (5-10, 175, 49

So.) all have seen considerable experience during their careers and give the Blazers additional depth at cornerback. Jamarious Crusoe (6-0, 180, R-Fr.) was redshirted as a true freshman in 2010. Safety Jamie Bender (6-0, 195, Sr.) started all 12 games last season in his first year at UAB, ranking second on the team in tackles with 94 stops. He had an interception and nine pass breakups, the latter leading the Blazer defense. Chase Daniel (6-3, 200, Sr.) has been one of the Blazers’ top defenders each of his three seasons at UAB but has had to battle injuries that have forced to him to miss a number of games. Daniel hopes to be ready to go in 2011 after recording 38 tackles last season. He will enter 2011 with 20 career starts at safety.

2011 Season Outlook Ugonna Amarikwa (6-0, 180, Sr.) has seen action at cornerback and safety and is listed as a No. 2 safety entering fall camp. UAB also signed a trio of junior college safeties last December and all three of the players — Johnny Cockrell (6-0, 200, Jr.), Lamar Johnson (6-2, 200, Jr.) and Calvin Jones (5-10, 175, So.) — enrolled at the University in January to begin preparing for their first season in Birmingham. All three will compete for playing time this fall. Special Teams Trey Ragland (5-11, 175, Sr.) has been the Blazers’ regular punter each of the past two seasons and last year ranked No. 5 in Conference USA with a 42.0 yards per kick average. Placekicking was an issue last season and the UAB coaching staff went out and signed two kickers in its February signing class.

Both Colin Anderson (5-10, 170, Fr.) of Stone Mountain, Ga. and Ty Long (6-2, 180, Fr.) of Roswell, Ga. come to UAB with impressive credentials and will compete for the kicker job once fall practice begins. In the return game, Shed was the Blazers’ primary return man on both punts and kickoffs and his production (738 KO return yards and 69 punt return yards) helped him rank third in the NCAA in all-purpose average. Jackie Williams and Greg Franklin are also likely to see action in the return game this fall.

2011 UAB Notes Trio of New Coaches Join UAB Staff For the first time in Neil Callaway’s five-year tenure at UAB, the football coaching staff will have a few new faces on the sidelines. Tommy West, who has 30 years of coaching experience, including head coaching stints at Memphis, Clemson and UT-Chattanooga, is the Blazers’ new defensive coordinator. Rick Mallory, another veteran collegiate coach and former NFL offensive lineman, will coach the UAB offensive line while John Wozniak joins the staff as running backs coach and co-special teams coordinator. West, Mallory and Wozniak all were on the same coaching staff at Memphis. Blazers Return 16 Starters The Blazers welcome back a large group of returning starters for the 2011 season. Seven starters are back on offense while nine are returning on the defensive side. Quarterback Bryan Ellis will lead the UAB offense this fall after taking over the starting job four games into the 2010 campaign and throwing for 2,940 yards and 25 touchdowns. Running back Pat Shed ran for 847 yards and recorded a team-best 47 receptions for the Blazers. And UAB also has an abundance of starting experience on the its offensive line, led by AllConference USA tackle and Lombardi Award candidate Matt McCants. On the defensive side, linebacker Marvin Burdette returns for his junior season after leading the team in tackles last fall with 114, the most by a Blazer linebacker since the 2003 season. Defensive tackle Elliott Henigan is a 2011 preseason all-conference selection. Pair of SEC Teams On Schedule For the 10th consecutive season, UAB’s nonconference football schedule will include a school from the Southeastern Conference and for the fifth time in that span, there will be a pair of SEC foes on the slate. Overall, the Blazers have played 16 games against SEC competition in their history. The Blazers will open their 2011 season with a road contest at Florida on Saturday, Sept. 10. A month later, UAB will play host to the Mississippi State Bulldogs at Legion Field, representing just the second time that the Blazers have played an SEC team on their home field. Mississippi State was the opponent the only other time (2006) that UAB hosted an SEC school in football. UAB also has games against SEC teams listed on its schedule for the next five seasons: 2012 – at South Carolina; 2013 – Mississippi

Top Two UAB Offensive Totals In Last Two Seasons UAB has had one of the country’s most productive offenses the past two seasons as well the two most prolific in school history. The Blazers’ offensive yardage total of 5,111 in 2009 was the most in the program’s history. Last season, UAB was just off that mark as the Blazers’ offense ran up 5,074 yards for their second-highest output since the first season in 1991.

Pat Shed finished third in the country in all-purpose yards last season (177.1 avg.).

State at home, at LSU; 2014 – at Mississippi State; 2015 – at Tennessee; and 2016 – Ole Miss at home. The 2001 season was the last one that UAB did not have an SEC opponent on its schedule. 21st Season of Football, 16th At I-A Level UAB has a young football program compared to most of its opposition. The Blazers went through their first intercollegiate football season in 1991 as a member of NCAA Division III under head coach Jim Hilyer. The Blazers moved to Division I-AA two seasons later in 1993 and remained at that level three years before making the transition to Division I-A beginning in 1996. The 2011 season will represent the 21st season of football for UAB. McCants, Henigan Named To Preseason All-Conference Team UAB’s Matt McCants and Elliott Henigan were both selected to the 2011 Preseason All-Conference USA team in a vote of the league’s head coaches. McCants, a senior offensive tackle, was a 2010 postseason all-conference first-team choice as well. Henigan, a senior defensive tackle, is making his initial appearance on the first-team unit after being tabbed second-team following the 2010 season. 51

Ellis Wins Back-To-Back Player-of-the-Week Honors Quarterback Bryan Ellis last season became the first UAB player since the 2000 season, and the second in history, to earn Conference USA Playerof-the-Week accolades two consecutive weeks. Ellis gained the first of his two player-of-the-week honors in 2010 when he led the Blazers’ to a comeback victory over Troy last Sept. 18, coming off the bench to throw for 360 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winning, 44-yard ‘Hail Mary’ scoring pass to Jackie Williams. A week later, Ellis picked up his second straight conference honor after he threw for 373 yards in a double-overtime loss to Tennessee. Shed Makes Impact In First Season Running back Pat Shed enjoyed an outstanding season in his debut campaign as a Blazer last fall and demonstrated his versatility along the way. Shed finished with 847 rushing yards, the sixthhighest total in UAB history and most by a Blazer running back since the 2004 season. He also pulled down a team-best 47 receptions to establish a new school record for catches by a running back. Shed totaled 2,125 all-purpose yards to average 177.1 per contest and rank No. 3 nationally in the final 2010 NCAA statistics. Shed also turned in a season-best 176-yard rushing performance against a Southern Miss defense that had been allowing only 83 yards per contest. Blazers Prominent On Preseason Watch Lists UAB had four players named to preseason watch lists for various specialty awards presented to the best in college football. Senior offensive tackle Matt McCants was named to the watch list for the Rotary Lombardi Award, presented annually to the top lineman in college football.

5,074 total yards. More than 3,000 of those yards came through the air as the 6-foot-7, 295-pound left tackle protected the blind side of the Blazer quarterbacks. McCants’ offensive line mate, senior Darion Smith was tabbed as one of 43 candidates to the fall watch list for the Rimington Trophy which honors the most outstanding center in the country.

The Blazers had 535 yards in the win against the Trojans on Sept. 18 before coming back the next week to register 544 yards in the game against the Volunteers in Knoxville. The only other time that the Blazers have had 500-plus yards on offense in back-to-back games was in the final two contests of the 2009 season when they totaled 520 against East Carolina and 527 in the season finale vs. UCF. UAB finished the 2010 season with an average of 422 yards per game on offense. One of the Blazers’ impressive showings in the second half of the 2010 campaign was their 223-yard rushing performance in the win at Southern Miss after the Golden Eagles had come into the game having allowed only 83 yards per game on the ground. 52

By The Numbers 3 The number of touchdowns scored by Jackie Williams, a true freshman in 2010, in the Blazers’ 34-33 win over Troy last season. Williams rushed for one score and caught two touchdown passes, including the game-winner on a 44-yard ‘Hail Mary’ with no time remaining. 3 The final national ranking for Pat Shed in 2010 in the category of all-purpose yards. Shed averaged 177.1 all-purpose yards per game as he had 847 rushing yards, 471 receiving yards, 69 on punt returns and 738 on kick return yards. 4 The number of games last season that UAB played that were settled on the final play. Three of the first four contests (Florida Atlantic, Troy and Tennessee) were all decided on the last play as was the Blazers’ double-overtime victory at Southern Miss. 18 Counting this season’s two games vs. Florida and Mississippi State, the number of contests UAB has gone against an opponent from the Southeastern Conference. With this season’s schedule, the Blazers have now played an SEC opponent in 10 consecutive seasons. Of the 18 games vs. SEC foes, UAB will have only played two of those at home with this season’s matchup with Mississippi State at Legion Field. 21 The number of years that football has been an intercollegiate sport at UAB. The Blazers have competed at the Division I-A level only since the 1996 season. 66 The combined number of years of coaching experience for UAB offensive coordinator Kim Helton and defensive coordinator Tommy West. Helton began his coaching career in 1973 as an offensive line coach at his alma mater, Florida. West was the running backs coach at Ole Miss in 1979 when he began his coaching career. 176 The number of rushing yards running back Pat Shed accounted for in UAB’s 50-49 double-overtime win over Southern Miss last Oct. 30. Shed’s total tied for seventh-best single-game mark in UAB history and represented the highest rushing number by a Blazer RB since Corey White ran for 200 against Memphis during the 2005 season. 418 The total number of passing yards quarterback Bryan Ellis threw for in the Blazers’ game vs. East Carolina last November. The number represented the fifth-highest single-game mark in UAB history. Ellis threw for 360 or more yards in four different games during the 2010 season. 2,940 The number of passing yards Bryan Ellis tallied during the 2010 season, the fifth-highest total in Blazer history and the most by a UAB signal-caller since 2005 when Darrell Hackney set the school record with 3,180 yards.

Head Coach Neil Callaway

N

eil Callaway, who has been a part of successful football programs throughout his playing and coaching careers, was named the head coach at UAB on December 17, 2006. Callaway, who had been the offensive coordinator at the University of Georgia for the previous six seasons, became the third head coach in the history of the UAB football program. Having completed his fourth season, Callaway inherited a program low on numbers and experience. Since assuming the helm of the program, the Blazers have improved both on and off the field under Callaway’s leadership and the future continues to look bright. “Coach Callaway brings to UAB a hardnosed attitude, both on the field and in the classroom,” Richard Margison, who served as the Blazers’ Interim Director of Athletics from December, 2005 until this February of 2007, said at the press conference announcing Callaway’s appointment. “He knows how to win. He has been connected with winning programs everywhere he has been and he will bring that attitude and experience to UAB. He delivers to our football program exactly what we need to successfully move us forward.” The Blazers’ offense has been one of the most potent in Conference USA the past three seasons. In 2009, the UAB ranked first in C-USA and No. 7 nationally in rushing offense and was third in

the league in total offense and 22nd in the final NCAA statistics. Last season, the Blazers again were a powerful offensive team, ranking No. 24

in the country in passing offense and 30th in total offense. UAB amassed 5,074 yards on offense, second only to the 2009 total in school history. Since becoming head coach Callaway, has also put a major emphasis on academics and there has been a significant improvement with the football program in that area in the past several seasons, especially with the team’s academic performance rate (APR). There are few coaches who have been a part of more championship teams than Callaway. Counting his years as a player and coach, Callaway has been a part of 10 Southeastern Conference championships, an accomplishment that includes three as a player at Alabama, four as an assistant coach at Auburn under head coach Pat Dye, one as an assistant at Alabama, and most recently, two at Georgia as offensive coordinator. During his six years at UGA, he was part of a staff that helped lead Georgia to 61 victories, two SEC championships, three SEC Eastern Division titles, four bowl victories, and four top 10 finishes in the final national polls.

Head Coach Neil Callaway In 2002, the Bulldogs finished as the SEC’s top scoring (32.14 ppg) and pass efficiency (138.91) offense and the `Dogs were second in scoring offense in 2005. In addition, Callaway helped develop numerous outstanding offensive linemen for the Bulldogs. While under Callaway’s tutelage, six different Georgia O-linemen earned All-Southeastern Conference honors on 10 occasions. One of them -- Max Jean-Gilles -- received All-America accolades in 2005. The UAB job is the first head coaching position for the successful, veteran coach and is one Callaway embraces and of which he sees loads of potential. “UAB has established a solid foundation when it comes to creating and developing a football program,” Callaway said when hired. “I’m looking forward to building on what exists and taking it farther than people can imagine. There are many people who are dedicated to this team, and that is so important in building championships. We have some work to do to get where we want to be, and where we expect to be in the very near future.” Callaway, a native of Macon, Ga., and a graduate of the University of Alabama, served as offensive line coach at Alabama in 1997 and line coach and offensive coordinator from 1998 to 2000. Prior to joining the Crimson Tide, he served as assistant head coach and offensive coordinator at Houston (1993-96). He was the long-time offensive line coach under head coach Pat Dye at Auburn (1981-92). Callaway also served on Dye’s staff at Wyoming (1980) and at East Carolina (1978-79). He was

Quarterback Joe Webb was named the Conference USA Offensive Player-of-the-Year in 2009 after he became the first player in NCAA history to pass for 2,000 yards and rush for 1,000 in back-to-back seasons. Helton has an impressive resume of experience, most recently as running backs coach with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League. While with the Argonauts, Helton coached Ricky Williams and John Avery. Helton’s collegiate coaching experience includes a stint as the head coach at the University of Houston from 1993-99. He also spent time as the offensive coordinator at Miami from 197982, coaching quarterbacks Jim Kelly and Vinny Testaverde. Helton got his coaching start in the collegiate ranks as the offensive line coach at his alma mater, the University of Florida, from 1973-78. Helton coached for five different NFL teams with his most recent stop with the Washington Redskins under Steve Spurrier (2002-03).

Tommy West Defensive Coordinator/Linebackers

T

ommy West, who has 30 years of collegiate coaching experience, including stints as a head coach at three different schools, was named defensive coordinator at UAB in January, 2011. In addition to his coordinator duties, West will also coach the Blazers’ linebackers. West brings a wealth of experience to the UAB staff. Most recently, he served as the head coach at the University of Memphis (2001-09), where he guided the Tigers to five bowl appearances and a 49-61 record in nine seasons. “I’ve known Tommy since the mid-80s and I’ve always thought he did a great job,” UAB Neil Callaway said when announcing West’s hiring. “I was really impressed with the job he did with Memphis’ defense when he was their coordinator, and the job he did as a head coach both there and when he was at Clemson. “I know he is a good person and outstand-

ing coach who fits into what we are doing both in philosophy and in toughness.” While leading the Memphis program, West guided the Tigers to some of their best seasons in program history. He helped snap a 32-year U of M bowl drought in 2003 when he led his squad to a 9-4 record, including a victory over North Texas in the New Orleans Bowl. The last time that the Tigers had been extended a bowl invitation was during the 1971 season when Memphis defeated San Jose State in the Pasadena Bowl. The bowl victory in 2003 propelled Memphis into the spotlight and was the first year of threeseason stretch when the Tigers registered 24 victories. Also in 2003 West became just the fourth coach in school history to claim nine wins in a single season, and for his efforts, he was named the Coach of the Year by the Tennessee Sports Writers Association. West and his Tigers embarked on the 2004 season knowing the bar had been raised and, with a veteran quarterback and an All-American running back, expectations were going to remain high. The Tigers opened the 2004 campaign with a 5-1 record, marking the best start for a Memphis squad since 1967. During that time, West led the Tigers into the national spotlight as Memphis defeated Ole Miss for the second-straight season and was listed No. 25 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll. It was the first time ever that the Tigers were ranked by the national entity. Prior to becoming the Tigers’ head coach, West spent the 2000 season as Memphis’ defensive coordinator. The Tigers finished the season ranked No. 1 in the nation in rushing defense (72.7 yards allowed per game) and were fifth in total defense (275.3 yards yielded per contest). West also spent five seasons (1993-98) as the head coach at Clemson. He coached the Tigers to a win in the Peach Bowl a month after being hired and was a part of four bowl teams during his time at Clemson. 89

T

yson Helton is in his fifth season on the UAB coaching staff after spending three seasons on the staff at the University of Memphis. Helton coaches the Blazers’ quarterbacks and also serves as recruiting coordinator. Under Helton’s guidance, Joe Webb developed into one of the most prolific quarterbacks in NCAA history.

Last season UAB again had a potent offense as the unit finished with 5,074 yards, second-highest in school history. Under Helton’s tutelage, quaretrback Bryan Ellis passed for 2,940 yards and 25 touchdowns. At Memphis, Helton coached special teams and tight ends. While working on the Tigers’ staff under head coach Tommy West, the Memphis special teams prospered under his guidance.

R

ick Mallory, a veteran coach who spent five seasons as a player in the NFL before beginning his coaching career, is in his first year as offensive line coach at UAB. Mallory, 50, brings 17 years of college coaching experience with him to UAB. Mallory served 10 years as the offensive line coach at the University of Memphis before spending last season as the director of football operations at the University of Wyoming. Prior to going to Memphis, Mallory was the tight ends coach at the University of Washington, his alma mater, from 1993-98. “Rick’s experience speaks for itself,” said UAB head coach Neil Callaway. “He was an outstanding player in college and played professionally in the NFL. Watching his offensive lines play when

he was at Memphis, I was always impressed. He has an outstanding reputation and we are excited to have him on our staff.” From 2000-09 when Mallory was on the staff at Memphis, the Tigers earned five bowl berths. In 2009, Mallory’s offensive line helped pave the way for senior running back Curtis Steele to earn first-team All-Conference USA honors as Steele finished No. 7 in the NCAA in rushing and scoring. Memphis ranked No. 3 in Conference USA in rushing offense in 2009, gaining an average of 158.8 yards per game on the ground. Mallory’s ’09 offensive line allowed an average of only 1.42 sacks per game to rank No. 35 in the NCAA. The 2008 Tiger offense ranked 22nd in the nation in rushing offense and 26th in total offense, while ranking 21st in fewest sacks allowed. The year prior in ’07, Memphis ranked No. 13 in the NCAA in passing offense, No. 23 in total offense and No. 10 in fewest sacks given up. From 2002-05, Mallory’s offensive line unit blocked for running back DeAngelo Williams, who earned All-America honors in both 2004 and 2005. The 2005 Tiger offense ranked fifth in the nation in rushing offense, and the 2004 edition ranked ninth in total offense. In four of his last six seasons at Memphis, Mallory’s offensive line led Conference USA in fewest sacks allowed. During his time at Memphis, he coached six first-team All-Conference USA offensive linemen, one second-team selection, four third-team honorees and five Conference USA All-Freshman team choices. Prior to Memphis, Mallory coached at Washington for seven seasons, beginning as a graduate assistant coach in 1992. He became 94

a full-time assistant in ’93, coaching the tight ends and special teams from 1993-98. The Huskies earned five bowl berths over that six-year period. Working with the tight ends, Mallory was fortunate to have Mark Bruener leading his position for a year-and-a-half. Bruener became the Huskies’ all-time leader in receptions by a tight end, was named first-team All-Pac 10 twice and was selected in the first round of the 1995 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. In 1996, Mallory had Ernie Conwell take over as the starting tight end, and he went on to receive first-team All-Pac 10 honors. Conwell was taken by the St. Louis Rams in the second round of the draft. In 1997, a Mallory-coached tight end claimed All-Pac 10 honors for the third-consecutive season. Cameron Cleeland picked up all-league honors and was later chosen by the New Orleans Saints in the NFL Draft. The Huskies’ second tight end, Jeremy Brigham, was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the third round. Mallory was a three-year letterman at Washington from 1981-83. As a freshman and sophomore, Mallory played tight end. His junior year, Mallory was converted to offensive guard, and he went on to earn All-Pacific 10 Conference honors his senior season of 1983. Following his college playing career, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Mallory in the ninth round of the 1984 NFL Draft. He played for the Buccaneers for five seasons from 1984-88. He and his wife Shannon have three grown sons: Ryan, Adam and Cameron; and two daughters, Naomi and Fiona. Mallory earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from Washington in 1983.

Two resulted in wins (Troy and Southern Miss) and two were losses (Florida Atlantic and Tennessee). Here is a quick look at each of the four UAB nail-biters and the final play that determined the outcome: Florida Atlantic – Sept. 2 - L, 32-31 The 28-yard FG attempt by UAB’s Josh Zahn was blocked with no time remaining as the Owls prevailed by one point. Game Highlights - UAB led 14-0 after one quarter and held a 28-12 advantage early in the third quarter before FAU rallied to trim the margin to 28-26 with 2:28 to play in the third quarter. Zahn made it a 31-26 Blazer lead with 7:28 to go with a 34-yard FG. After an FAU punt was downed at the UAB 1-yard line with 4:11 left, the Blazers punted out of their endzone with the Owls taking possession at the Blazers’ 38. RB Alfred Morris scored on the first play from scrimmage on a 38-yard run to give Florida Atlantic its first lead of the game with 2:20 to play. After the kickoff, UAB drove to the FAU 5, aided by a 50-yard run by QB David Isabelle. After two rushing plays, Zahn’s potential winning FG was blocked. Troy – Sept. 18 - W, 34-33 UAB quarterback Bryan Ellis connected with freshman WR Jackie Williams for a 44-yard ‘Hail

Game Highlights - UAB stormed back from a 23-0 second quarter deficit to record the largest comeback win in Blazers’ history. Ellis came off the bench and threw for 360 yards and three touchdowns in the game while Williams scored three touchdowns, two on receptions from Ellis (36 and 44 yards). UAB’s game-winning drive was 99-yards, covered in nine plays and accomplished in only 1:09 with no timeouts. Tennessee – Sept. 25 - L, 32-29 (2 OT) Tennessee quarterback Matt Simms connected with Denarius Moore for a 25-yard touchdown in the game’s second overtime to give the Volunteers a 32-29 win at Neyland Stadium. Game Highlights - For the second straight week, UAB rallied with a huge comeback. Down 23-7 at halftime (same halftime score as a week earlier vs. Troy), the Blazers dominated play in the second half, outgaining the Vols by a 281-98 1 02

Back-To-Back 500-Yard Games Only once before in school history had UAB rolled up more than 500 yards of offense in consecutive games before achieving that feat against Troy and Tennessee early last season. The Blazers had 535 yards in the win against the Trojans on Sept. 18 before coming back the next week to register 544 yards in the game versus the Volunteers in Knoxville. Ironically, the only other time the Blazers have had 500-plus yards in back-to-back games was in the final two contests of the 2009 season when they totaled 520 against East Carolina and 527 in the season finale vs. UCF. UAB averaged 423 yards last season and in the past nine games, the Blazers averaged nearly 440 yards. The Blazers rolled up 464 yards against Southern Miss Oct. 30 and had 223 rushing yards against a USM defense that had entered the game ranked No. 3 in the country in rushing defense (having allowed only 83 yards per game on the ground).

McCants First-Team All-Conference, Henigan Second-Team UAB offensive tackle Matt McCants and junior defensive tackle Elliott Henigan were named 2010 All-Conference USA while receiver Jackie Williams was selected to the league’s allfreshman team. The all-league football teams are selected by a vote of the 12 C-USA head coaches. McCants, a 6-7, 295-pound product of Mobile, Ala., was tabbed to the first team while Henigan, a 6-4, 275-pound native of Atlanta, was chosen to the second unit. The Blazers had nine other players selected honorable mention All-Conference USA. Williams was the Blazers’ lone selection on the C-USA All-Freshman team. McCants, who started all 12 games in 2010, was the leader on an offensive line that helped UAB register its second-highest offensive season total in school history. The Blazers finished with 5,074 yards in 2010, just 37 yards shy of the season mark for UAB. Henigan emerged last season as one of the top D-linemen in the league, especially as a run stopper. He finished with 55 tackles to rank No. 3 on the team and was fifth in C-USA in tackles for loss with 15.5. Henigan ranked No. 20 in the country in tackles for loss. Williams, from Prichard, Ala., made an early and lasting contribution to the Blazers in his first season. The 5-11, 185-pound Vigor High School product led all freshmen receivers in C-USA in catches with 30 (for 327 yards and three receiving TDs). His most memorable game was the third contest of the year when he caught six passes for 114 yards and two receiving scores in the win over Troy.

Quarterback Bryan Ellis emerged as one of the top signal-callers in Conference USA in 2010. He finished the season with 2,940 passing yards with 25 touchdown throws.

He was on the receiving end of quarterback Bryan Ellis’ 44-yard `Hail Mary’ TD pass with no time remaining against the Trojans as the Blazers rallied for the win. Williams also had a rushing touchdown against Troy. Ellis Earns C-USA Player-Of-The Week Honors Twice UAB quarterback Bryan Ellis picked up his second consecutive Conference USA Offensive Player-of-the-Week honor on Sept. 27, two days after he passed for 373 yards in a 32-29 double-overtime loss at Tennessee. Only once in school history had a Blazer been tabbed for C-USA Player-of-the-Week accolades on consecutive weeks. In 2000, kicker Rhett Gallego was named the league’s Special Teams Player-of-the-Week on back-to-back occasions.

Shed Breaks UAB Records For All-Purpose Yards With his 309 all-purpose yards in UAB’s game vs. East Carolina, Blazer running back Pat Shed set school records for a single-game and a season. Shed’s all-purpose total vs. the Pirates broke the previous UAB mark of 289 all-purpose yards set by Derrick Ingram vs. Prairie View A&M in 1994. In addition, with his 204-yard effort vs. Memphis the next-to-last week of the season, Shed increased his season all-purpose total to 2,125 (rushing - 847, receiving – 471, punt returns – 69, kickoff returns - 738) which also is a new Blazer record for a season. Ingram also held the season record for all-purpose, recording 1,504 during the 1994 season. Ellis’ Passing Yards No. 5 In UAB History Quarterback Bryan Ellis registered the No. 5 total on UAB’s single-season list for passing yardage with 2,940 yards. And the junior from Byron, Ga. reached that number despite not playing the first game (vs. FAU), seeing limited action in the second (vs. SMU) and coming off the bench in the second quarter in game three (vs. Troy).

Florida Atlantic blocked a potential 28-yard game-winning field goal on the final play to hold off UAB in a 32-31 win in the season opener for both teams at Legion Field. The Blazers, who defeated the Owls by a 56-29 score last November, jumped out to a 14-0 lead after one quarter and took a 28-12 advantage early in the third quarter. Alfred Morris scored on a 38-yard run with 2:20 left in the game for the Owls to give FAU a 32-31 lead, its first of the game. UAB quarterback David Isabelle, who ran for three touchdowns, threw an interception that was returned 38 yards for a touchdown by Brently Harstad to pull FAU within 28-19 at the 6:19 mark of the third quarter. That play proved to be one of the largest in the game as momentum shifted at that point. After the Blazers went three-and-out on their next possession, FAU took possession at its 27-yard line and promptly marched 73 yards on only five plays to cut the lead to 28-26. Isabelle, making his first career start, finished with 214 yards rushing, a UAB and Conference USA single-game record for a quarter-

back. His rushing total was the second-highest in Blazers’ history. He had a 50-yard run in the final minute to set up the Blazers’ failed field-goal attempt. The contest could not have started much better for UAB. The Blazers were dominant in the first 15 minutes as they ran up 138 yards of offense on the way to a 14-0 lead. Meanwhile, UAB’s defense held the Owls to only 33 yards of offense in the opening period, and minus eight yards rushing. Isabelle also had one touchdown pass as he hit running back Daniel Borne for a 15-yard score with :46 remaining before halftime. Jeff Van Camp’s third touchdown pass of the game — a 43-yarder to Willie Flo — for the Owls’ final score of the game. Van Camp threw for 254 yards, while Jean had nine catches for 164 yards.

Zach Line rushed for 122 yards and two touchdowns to lead SMU to a 28-7 victory against UAB on Saturday night in the Conference USA football opener for both teams. Darius Johnson caught two touchdown passes from Kyle Padron as the Mustangs beat the Blazers for the fourth time in as many meetings since the schools became league rivals in 2005. David Isabelle threw a 4-yard TD pass to Mike Jones for UAB’s only score. It was set up three plays earlier when Bryant Turner forced an SMU fumble and D.J. Reese recovered to give the Blazers the ball in the red zone. Isabelle, making his second start for UAB, finished 7-of-15 for 109 yards, including a careerlong 50-yard connection with Frantrell Forrest. Forrest, who led UAB with five receptions for 71 yards, nearly scored on that third-quarter play but had the ball stripped at the 1-yard line. It marked back-to-back possessions the Blazers had the ball near the goal line trailing by a touchdown but were unable to punch it in. Later in the third, Padron hooked up with Johnson for the first of their two second-half scores to give the Mustangs a 21-7 cushion.

Johnson led SMU with seven receptions for 45 yards, while Padron finished 18-of-33 for 145 yards through the air. UAB’s Turner, in addition to his forced fumble, added two tackles for loss, including one sack, and a pass breakup. Marvin Burdette and Cornelius Richards finished with seven tackles each for the Blazer defense. With his 71 yards receiving, Forrest moved into third place on the UAB career receiving yardage list with 1,738. Trey Ragland again proved to be a valuable weapon for UAB in the field position game. The junior punter kicked five times for an average of 48.6 yards. He also booted a career-long 75-yard punt, which is tied for the second-longest in UAB history. On the ground, Pat Shed led the Blazers with 42 yards on eight carries.

Jackie Williams hauled in a 44-yard touchdown on the final play, giving UAB a 34-33 comeback victory over Troy at Legion Field. Williams made a leaping catch at the goal line from backup quarterback Bryan Ellis. The ‘Hail Mary’ touchdown capped a 99-yard drive that began with 1:09 remaining and UAB out of timeouts. The Blazers trailed 23-0 with 6:35 left in the first half and were still behind 33-20 with nine minutes to play. Ellis hit Williams with a 36-yard touchdown pass to close the gap to 33-27 with 8:34 remaining. The 23-point come-from-behind victory is the largest in school history. It bests the 22-point come-from-behind win against Houston on Oct. 12, 2002 (UAB trailed 28-6 before winning, 5134). Ellis, who replaced starting UAB quarterback David Isabelle early in the second quarter, finished the day 23-for-37 for 360 yards with three touchdown passes and two interceptions. His 360 passing yards were the 10th most for a UAB quarterback in program history. All three of Ellis’ touchdown passes were 30-plus yards. Williams had a breakout game against Troy,

Matt Simms threw a 25 yard touchdown to Denarius Moore on the opening play of the second overtime as Tennessee beat UAB 32-29 at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tenn. The Volunteers had held a 23-7 lead at halftime, but the Blazers dominated in virtually every phase after intermission. The Blazers staged their second major comeback in two weeks as David Isabelle found Frantrell Forrest on a 27-yard touchdown strike and ran for 6 yards for another score and Bryan Ellis hit Jeffery Anderson on two 2-point conversions. In his first career start, Ellis passed for 373 yards as he hit 29-of-55 passes and one touchdown. It was the second consecutive game that Ellis has surpassed the 350-yard mark. UAB’s Josh Zahn connected on a 35-yard field goal in the first overtime and a 21-yarder in the second. Daniel Lincoln kicked a 40-yard field goal for Tennessee in the first overtime. The Vols’ first drive of the game wasn’t indicative of how the contest would evolve. After taking the opening kickoff, Tennessee drove 59 yards on nine plays. Simms connected with Denarius Moore for a 13-yard touchdown to give the Vols a 7-0 lead.

catching six passes for 114 yards with a pair of receiving touchdowns and one rushing touchdown. Williams scored his first collegiate touchdown on a 4-yard rush in the third quarter. Williams added his second career touchdown and first receiving touchdown on a 36-yard reception from Ellis in the fourth quarter. Williams’ final score was one of the most memorable in recent program history. Corey Robinson threw for 404 yards and two touchdowns and DuJuan Harris rushed for two scores as the Trojans scored on four of their first five possessions. UAB squandered several scoring opportunities in the first half, committing three turnovers in Troy’s territory and turning the ball over once on downs. The Blazers racked up 535 yards of total offense against the Trojans, including 376 yards passing and 159 yards rushing. Running back Pat Shed led the ground game with 96 yards on eight carries.

UAB tied the game late in the first quarter when Ellis found WR Mike Jones for a 52-yard TD pass. But the Vols struck back immediately on their first play from scrimmage after the ensuing kickoff. Simms hit Zach Rogers for a 72yard touchdown pass to make it 14-7. A Daniel Lincoln 47-yard field goal increased the margin to 17-7 with 13:40 in the second quarter. Tennessee added one more score late in the half as Prentiss Wggner picked off an Ellis pass and returned it nine yards for a TD to give the Vols a 23-7 lead at the half. But UAB roared back after the half for the second straight week. Isabelle hooked up with Frantrell Forrest for a 27-yard TD pass and then Ellis hit Anderson for the first of two 2-point conversions. Isabelle cut it to 23-21 with 9:12 left in the fourth quarter on a 6-yard TD run. Another Ellis-to-Anderson 2-point pass play knotted the game at 23-all. The Blazers outgained the Volunteers by a 544 yards to 287 margin, had eight more first downs and converted seven more third down attempts. After gaining 140 yards in the first quarter, Tennessee was held to only 147 the remainder of the game.

Troy Davis returned an interception for a touchdown and Josh Robinson picked up a fumble for a score as a stingy UCF defense led the Knights to a 42-7 win over UAB. After averaging 540 yards in the past two games, the Blazers were held to only 269 yards against the Knights. Ronnie Weaver had 50 yards rushing and two touchdowns, and freshman quarterback Jeff Godfrey had 217 total yards in a strong Conference USA opener for the Knights (3-2, 1-0). But it was their defense that came up big in the nationally televised game. Bryan Ellis was held to 149 yards passing with a touchdown and two interceptions. Kemal Ishmael returned an interception of a pass by Ellis to the UAB 27-yard line early in the first quarter. Three plays later, Weaver’s 4-yard touchdown gave UCF a 7-0 lead. Godfrey’s 35-yard run in the second quarter highlighted a 53-yard drive that was capped by a 2-yard touchdown run by Weaver. Junior Rob Calabrese relieved Godfrey after a hard hit, connecting on a 4-yard TD pass to Brian Watters with 4 seconds remaining in the first half that put the Knights ahead 21-0. Two first-half fumbles cost UCF a chance to put away the game earlier, including one by

Quarterback Bryan Ellis threw for 272 yards and three touchdowns, two to Frantrell Forrest, as UAB rolled up 500 yards total offense in a 21-6 Conference USA victory over UTEP. The win was the Blazers’ third in four alltime meetings with the Miners. Ellis completed 20 of 28 passes as the Blazers came from behind for the win with scoring drives of 74, 80 and 99 yards. UAB’s points all came in the second half as Ellis connected on touchdown passes to Jeffery Anderson (3 yards), and twice to Forrest (20 and 10 yards). The Miners led 3-0 at halftime on a 25-yard field goal by Dakota Warren. Warren added another three-pointer, a 20-yarder, early in the third quarter to increase the margin to 6-0. UAB claimed the lead with 2:40 to play in the third period when Ellis teamed up with tight end Anderson for the short TD pass. Anderson had one of his best games as a Blazers as he caught four passes for 93 yards and a score. The Blazers made it 14-6 when Ellis hit Forrest with a 20-yard touchdown with 13:12 left in the fourth quarter. After the Miners downed a punt at the UAB 1, Ellis led a 14-play, 99-yard drive that took 7:59 and ended with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Forrest with 4:06 left. Forrest finished with seven catches for 99

Weaver on the Blazers’ 2-yard line and another by Godfrey 30 yards from another score. But the Knights’ blitz-happy defense - tops in Conference USA - was constantly in the backfield and had UAB scrambling. Robinson returned Isabelle’s fumble 56 yards down the sideline for a touchdown, giving UCF a 28-0 lead that was never challenged. It was quite a way to start conference play for the Knights, especially after last-minute losses to North Carolina State and Kansas State. A 23-yard TD catch by Patrick Hearn on fourth down gave UAB its only score in the third quarter, one of the few big plays UCF’s defense allowed. Davis would follow with a 29-yard interception return of a pass by Ellis. The Knights improved their all-time record to 7-1 against the Blazers. UAB’s only win in the series was a 15-0 shutout at Orlando two years before in the season finale for both teams.

yards and went over the 2,000 receiving yards mark in his career. The UAB defense allowed UTEP’s potent offense only 229 yards with the Miners managing just 82 after intermission. After coming into the game with just one interception in the first five games of the season, the Blazers picked off three Trevor Vittatoe passes as T.J. Ballou (second of the season), Marquis Coleman and Terrell Springs all recorded INTs. The Blazers offered a balanced attack on offense in the game as they had 228 rushing yards and 272 through the air. Of UAB’s 228 yards on the ground, 226 of those came from running backs. That marked the first time since the 2006 season (vs. Memphis) that the Blazers tallied more than 200 rushing yards from the running back position. UTEP’s Vittatoe was held to just 169 yards passing as he hit only 15-of-33 with three interceptions and no touchdowns. The Miners had just 60 yards on the ground.

For the second time this season, UAB played a Southeastern Conference opponent toe-to-toe on its homefield only to come up short. This time, it was No. 24-ranked Mississippi State that held off the Blazers for a 29-24 victory at Davis Wade Stadium. MSU freshman LaDarius Perkins rushed for 131 yards and a touchdown to pace the Bulldogs. Mississippi State won its fifth straight game, its longest streak since the 1999 campaign, and became bowl eligible for only the second time in a decade. Getting there wasn’t easy for the Bulldogs. The Blazers took a 24-23 lead with 10:16 left in the fourth quarter on a 1-yard run by quarterback Bryan Ellis, who plowed through the right side of the line for the touchdown. But Mississippi State responded with two field goals from Derek DePasquale - his fourth and fifth of the night — to help the Bulldogs regain the lead. With slightly less than two minutes remaining, UAB had a chance to drive for the winning touchdown, but Pat Shed fumbled after a 31-yard kickoff return and the Bulldogs were able to run out the clock. Shed, returning to his hometown of Starkville, had a productive game until his last

play as he rushed for a team-high 69 yards and also had 142 yards in kick returns. He finished with 227 all-purpose yards for the Blazers. UAB outgained the Bulldogs 207 yards to 103 in the first half and tied the game at 10 just before halftime on a 2-yard pass from Ellis to Mike Jones. Jones finished with career-highs in both catches (4) and yards (66) to go along with his touchdown grab. The Bulldogs appeared to take control early in the third quarter, driving for a 17-10 lead on Perkins’ 2-yard touchdown run. But the Blazers showed their resiliency again, answering with Daniel Borne’s 2-yard touchdown run to tie the game at 17. Mississippi State was giving up just 16 points per game, but struggled to contain the Blazers. Ellis completed 23 of 45 passes for 236 yards and a touchdown. But the Bulldogs eventually wore UAB down. Perkins, who was filling in for injured starter Vick Ballard, broke free for a 51-yard run late in the fourth quarter during the Bulldogs’ final field goal drive.

Bryan Ellis threw for three scores and ran for another as UAB outlasted Southern Mississippi 50-49 in Conference USA action in double overtime at Roberts Stadium in Hattiesburg. Golden Eagles running back Desmond Johnson scored from two yards out on the first possession of the second overtime, but UAB’s Pat Shed answered with a 13-yard TD run. Ellis converted the two-point try with a pass to tight end Jeffery Anderson to seal the win for the Blazers. Ellis connected with receiver Mike Jones for the duo’s third touchdown of the game on the opening drive of overtime. Southern Miss responded with a fourth-and-goal touchdown pass from Austin Davis to Quentin Pierce to extend the game for the second time. Jones, who leads UAB with six touchdown grabs this season, became the first UAB player to catch three TDs in a game since Reggie Lindsey at UTEP on Nov. 19, 2005. Shed did most of the damage on the ground

for UAB, running for a career-high 176 yards on 29 carries. The junior college transfer, who topped 100 yards rushing for the first time in his UAB career, ran for two scores on the day. Fourth-quarter rushing touchdowns by Shed and Ellis gave the Blazers a 35-21 lead, but Southern Miss tied the game on an 8-yard touchdown pass from Davis to Kelvin Bolden with 28 seconds left in regulation. Ellis finished with 241 passing yards as he connected on 22-of-34 with three touchdowns. The UAB defense forced a season-high four turnovers in the game. Linebacker Marvin Burdette led the team with 13 tackles, including two for loss, to go along with a sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. The Blazers registered a pair of interceptions in the game as T.J. Ballou and Jamie Bender both picked off Davis passes. With the victory, UAB recorded its second straight win over Southern Miss and its first against the Golden Eagles in Hattiesburg.

Quarterback Brian Anderson threw for 304 yards and three touchdowns to lead Marshall to a 31-17 win over UAB at Legion Field. The score was tied at 17-17 when UAB kicker Josh Zahn booted a 20-yard field goal at the 12:54 mark of the fourth quarter. The Thundering Herd took the lead at the 9:32 mark when running back Troy Evans recovered his own fumble in the Blazer endzone. Marshall added to the lead, again on the strength of a play by Evans, when he returned a punt 24 yards to the UAB 21-yard-line. Four plays later with 5:02 to play, Anderson hit tight end Lee Smith for an 8-yard touchdown pass, his second score for the day. Smith finished the game with nine receptions for 81 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Anderson, who completed 25 of 41 passes with one interception for the Thundering Herd, threw two first-quarter touchdown passes. UAB quarterback Bryan Ellis also had two scoring passes in the first half, the second a 43-yarder to Patrick Hearn to tie the game at 14 with 1:03 to go until halftime. After UAB’s kickoff, Marshall then went seven plays in 58 seconds, culminating in Tyler Warner’s 41-yard field goal. The Blazers tied the game early in the fourth quarter on the Zahn field goal.

UAB, which had averaged 187 rushing yards over the previous three games was held to only 83 by Marshall. It was the first time that the Blazers had been held to less than 100 rushing yards through the first nine games. Quarterback Bryan Ellis finished the game with 238 passing yards, hitting 21-of-45passes for a pair of touchdowns.

East Carolina rallied with three touchdowns in the final 8:18 of the game to overtake UAB in an offensive shootout, 54-42, at Legion Field. The Pirates’ victory came despite of one of the top passing performances in Blazers’ history by junior quarterback Bryan Ellis. Ellis threw for 418 yards and five touchdowns in the game. The yardage total is the fifthhighest in UAB history and the touchdown count was just one short of the Blazer record. Dominique Davis passed for 331 yards and tossed five touchdowns for ECU. The two teams accounted for 1,041 yards of total offense. UAB had 545 yards of offense while the Pirates totaled 492. The Pirates trailed 42-34 with less than nine minutes to play, but a 56-yard punt return by Dwayne Harris and a fumbled kickoff by UAB (3-7, 2-4 C-USA) helped ECU close the gap quickly. Davis’ 11-yard pass to Jon Williams with

5:48 to play gave East Carolina the lead that it wouldn’t relinquish the rest of the way. Williams had five catches for 115 yards and 14 carries for 82 yards and another score for East Carolina. UAB had several offense stars in the game, in addition to Ellis’ stellar effort. Running back Pat Shed set a UAB single-game record, as well as season mark, for all-purpose yards. He finished the game with 309 total yards and now has 1,735 for the season. Senior tight end Jeffery Anderson caught a career-high seven passes for 82 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Wide receiver Mike Jones tied his career-high for receptions with eight and set a new personal-best mark for receiving yards with 110. Defensively, linebacker Marvin Burdette again led the Blazers in tackles as he registered eight stops in the game, including one tackle for loss.

Bryan Ellis threw for 361 yards and three touchdowns and Pat Shed ran for a game-high 125 yards and a score to lead UAB past Memphis 31-15 in Conference USA action at Legion Field. The victory gave the Blazers their ninth win in 13 meetings over the Tigers and enabled UAB to keep the ‘Battle for the Bones’ trophy in Birmingham for another year. The Blazers jumped out to a 17-3 lead with 10:24 remaining in the second quarter thanks to a 52-yard touchdown pass from Ellis to Jeffery Anderson, a 1-yard scoring run by Shed and a 25yard field goal by Josh Zahn. Ellis connected with Shed on a 54-yard touchdown pass 1:53 before halftime to extend UAB’s lead to 24-6. Paulo Henriques kicked field goals of 44, 43 and 36 yards for Memphis. The 36-yarder, which came with 20 seconds left in the second quarter, pulled the Tigers within 15 points, 24-9, at halftime. Ellis hit Patrick Hearn for a 72-yard touchdown pass in the fourth period. It appeared the Blazers would add to their lead in the final minutes of the game. A Shed 34-yard run helped UAB move the ball to the UM 28 but with his team leading 31-15, Ellis was then intercepted by

Jeremy Eddington rushed for 66 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winning 22-yard score with 44 seconds remaining, to give Rice a 28-23 win over UAB on Saturday. After Eddington’s score, the Blazers had one more chance to win it, but Rice forced UAB into a turnover on downs and ran out the clock. Taylor McHargue finished with 62 yards on 14 carries and threw for 125 yards and a touchdown on 13 of 22 passing to lead the Owls. Sam McGuffie finished with 56 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries. Bryan Ellis threw for 248 yards and three scores on 21 of 39 passing while Pat Shed caught seven passes for 94 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Blazers. McGuffie put the Owls on top 7-0 on a 5-yard touchdown run with 6:14 left in the first quarter, but UAB responded with a 23-yard touchdown pass from Ellis to Jackie Williams two minutes later to tie the score. The Owls regained the lead on a 9-yard touchdown run by Eddington with 8:29 left in the second quarter, but the Blazers responded four minutes later with a 12-yard touchdown pass from Ellis to Shed to tie it again at 14. UAB took its first lead on a 27-yard field goal

Memphis’ Marcus Ball with just under two minutes remaining. Ball returned the pick 63 yards to the UAB 7-yard line. But the Blazer defense withstood the late threat by Memphis as the Tigers netted only two yards on four pass attempts. UAB took possession and then ran the clock to secure the win. Anderson finished the game with six receptions for 80 yards while Hearn recorded the first 100-yard receiving effort of his career. The sophomore had four catches for 123 yards in the contest. Shed turned in a 125-yard rushing performance for the Blazers. UAB finished the game with 510 offensive yards, its fifth game this season that the Blazers have gained 500 or more yards. Memphis QB Ryan Williams hit 16-of-31 passes for 228 yards with one touchdowns.

The Blazers retook the lead on a 32-yard touchdown pass from Ellis to Shed with five minutes left in the game, but the extra point missed, so UAB led 23-21.
