UAB’s 2012 home football game with Ole Miss has been moved to the start of the 2016 season, Blazers’ athletic officials announced on Friday. As a result, UTEP will reportedly be added to the 2012 Ole Miss schedule.
UAB had been scheduled to meet the Rebels at Legion Field on Sept. 8, 2012, but the game will now be played on Sept. 3, 2016. The Blazers’ 2012
schedule still includes trips to South Carolina and Ohio State.
The Blazers have played Ole Miss once previously, a 49-13 Rebels victory in Oxford during the 2009 season.
UAB, 4-8 last season, will play Mississippi State in Birmingham this season on Oct. 8. MSU is also on the Blazers’ schedule in 2013 (Birmingham) and 2014 (Starkville).
