Cougars quarterback Case Keenum completed 24-of-37 passes for 534 yards and nine touchdowns in last week's 73-34 win over crosstown rival Rice, and is just 267 passing yards away from becoming the NCAA's all-time leader. Keenum is averaging 402.4 yards per game this season, which means he'll likely set the new record sometime in the third quarter. Wide receivers Tyron Carrier and Patrick Edwards both have over 50 receptions on the season, with Edwards leading the team with 1,069 yards and 11 touchdowns.
UAB enters Saturday night's game with a 1-7 overall record, with their lone win coming over Central Florida two weeks ago. The Blazers' defense ranks 105th in the nation against the pass and could be in for a long night against Keenum & Co.
