UAB redshirt freshman QB Tyler Johnston III completed 14-of-27 passes for 207 with one interception and three interceptions in Saturday's 26-23 win over Southern Miss. Johnston III was lights out last week against UTSA in the place of the injured A.J. Erdely, but it was a different story on Saturday when the redshirt freshman didn't take of the ball (three interceptions) and averaged 7.7 yards per pass attempt. To be fair, he was able to run for a touchdown, but Johnston won't be able to be this careless to have any chance at an upset at Texas A&M next week.
Texas A&M Aggies
Texas A&M sophomore QB Kellen Mond completed 19-of-28 passes for 236 yards with three touchdowns and a pick in a 38-24 victory over Ole Miss on Saturday. Mond also added a rushing score, so it was a four-touchdown day for the talented sophomore. The last two games were a bit of an adventure -- to put it nicely -- for Mond, and while this came against one of the worst defenses in football, the signal-caller was much, much improved in this one with his accuracy, pocket presence and decision-making. When Mond plays like this, the Aggies are very difficult to beat. He will face off against UAB next Saturday.
The under is 4-0 in the Blazers’ last four games after accumulating less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game.
The under is 4-1 in the Aggies’ last five games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game.

On the other side, the under is also 4-0 in the Aggies’ last four home games, 5-1 in their last six games overall, and is 4-1 in their last five games versus Conference USA opponents.
