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.
Notre Dame thought it had the game won. But Stanford had other ideas.
The Trojans are 5-2 since Helton took over. With a win over UCLA and a place in the Pac-12 title game, he's making a strong case to stay on full time.
