The UAB Department of Athletics on Thursday announced that it is canceling its final home game of the season. UAB was scheduled to play Southern Mississippi on Friday at Legion Field, but the game was canceled due to continuing problems with COVID-19.
UAB has said that it will “continue to work with Conference USA on the remaining regular-season schedule.”
The only remaining game on UAB’s schedule is a game at Rice on Dec. 12.
UAB currently has a record of just four wins and three losses.
A win at Rice would guarantee the Blazers a winning season, but in this COVID altered season, a four and three or four and four record is probably good enough to be bowl eligible.
Southern Miss has had a dreadful season. They are two and seven and have two remaining games, against UTEP and Florida Atlantic. Both of those games were postponed from earlier in the season.
Unless the season is extended a week to the 19th, there is no way for UAB and Southern Miss to make up the canceled game.
