Point spread: UAB -10.5 (UAB favored to win by more than 10.5 points, otherwise Miami (OH) covers)

Pick via FOX Sports College Football Analyst RJ Young:
The Red Hawks gave up 180 on the ground to Ball State running back Carson Steele, and the Blazer boasts a 1,700-yard back in Dewayne McBride. Add to this Miami (OH) QB Aveon Smith is just a 49% percent passer and has 101 rushes this season.
I have a hard time seeing this game hitting over the total.
