BIRMINGHAM, Ala. ----- UAB has added a football game against Alabama A&M in 2014 and will no longer have a home-and-home series with Navy, Blazer athletics officials have announced.
UAB added the Alabama A&M contest to its 2014 non-conference schedule that already includes a home contest vs. Troy (Aug. 30) and a road game at Mississippi State (Sept. 6). The Blazers will play host to the Bulldogs on Sept. 13 at Legion Field.
The Blazers also announced that the two-game series with Navy has been cancelled for 2016 and 2017, respectively, due to the Midshipmen becoming a football-playing member of the Big East Conference and assuming a league schedule, starting in 2015. UAB officials also announced that it will not play Ole Miss in 2016, as previously scheduled.
