UAB kicks off 2019 season Thursday


CBS 42 news reporter Conan Gasque spoke to UAB head coach Bill Clark, athletics director Mark Ingram and other university leaders ahead of the Blazers season opener against Alabama State.

Kickoff is Thursday at 7 p.m. at Legion Field, where the Blazers are undefeated in two seasons since bringing back their program.

University leaders will honor last year’s Conference USA championship team before the game. They’ve also added a beer garden outside the stadium for fans to enjoy as part of their pregame festivities.
