BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- In his second collegiate start, Austin Brown bolstered Alabama-Birmingham to a 28-point halftime lead as the Blazers earned their first win of the season -- a 52-3 trouncing of Southeastern Louisiana Saturday.
A week after amassing 337 yards and three scores through the air in a loss to Tulsa, Brown helped beat the Lions (2-4) by completing 16 of 22 passes for 266 yards and a touchdown, all before the half.
UAB (1-4) went on scoring drives of 68, 78, 59 and 56 yards in the first half, and also scored on Marvin Burdette's 36-yard interception return for a touchdown.
The Blazers' defense held Southeastern Louisiana to 125 yards of offense, including just 47 yards on the ground.
Nathan Stanley was 10-of-23 passing for 78 yards for the Lions, tossing one interception as the team totaled just nine first downs.
