UAB 22, Alcorn State 0
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Swayze Waters kicked a school-record five field goals to lead UAB to a 22-0 victory over Alcorn State Saturday, giving Neil Callaway his first win as Blazers head coach.
Brandon Thornton gained 92 yards on 21 carries to help the Blazers break an eight-game losing streak. The shutout was UAB's first since a 47-0 victory over Louisiana a Monroe in 1999.
Nate Hughes caught five passes for 89 yards and Antoine Young ran for 69 yards on 13 carries to lead Alcorn State (0-3).
Waters had field goals of 42, 32, and 52 yards in the first half. The 52-yarder tied a school record set by Kevin Thomason against Mississippi Valley State in 1994.
The only points of the second half came on a pair of field goals by Waters in the third quarter from 22 and 38 yards.
UAB had 332 yards of total offense while holding Alcorn State to 333 yards.
Alcorn State's biggest threat came when the Braves drove to the UAB 19 yard line in the second quarter, but linebacker Joe Henderson intercepted a Chris Walker pass and returned it to the UAB 40.
