Blazers report: Inside slant

The penalty flags were flying early, but the UAB offense couldn't get off the ground in a 26-13 loss at South Carolina on Saturday.

The Blazers gained seven yards on 13 snaps in the first quarter. They also committed seven penalties over that 15-minute span for 55 yards, including three pass-interference calls on the Gamecocks' first three possessions and an untimely offsides call that wiped out an interception by Kevin Sanders.

"I thought we tried to hang in there with them a little bit," Blazers head coach Neil Callaway said. "But I don't think we gave ourselves a chance. South Carolina is a good defensive football team, but we made so many mistakes, penalties, that we're not giving ourselves a chance."

UAB (1-4) finished with nine penalties for 75 yards and a season-low 207 yards of total offense (67 rushing, 140 passing) and just 12 first downs. South Carolina (3-2) led 20-6 at halftime and 26-6 before Blazers quarterback Joe Webb finally found the end zone on a 1-yard run with 24 seconds to play.

"We did all we could. We'll work hard next time," said UAB running back Rashaud Slaughter. "We had a couple of positives. We're better on defense, because they held their own against them. The offense, we have to work harder."

SEASON RECAP

Tulsa 45, UAB 22: For the second straight season, the Blazers allowed more than 600 yards of offense by the Golden Hurricane. Frantrell Forrest's 90-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and 32-yard touchdown catch and quarterback Joe Webb's 136 rushing yards and two TD passes weren't nearly enough in a lopsided conference loss at home.

Florida Atlantic 49, UAB 34: Joe Webb passed for 326 yards and two touchdowns and Frantrell Forrest had 11 receptions for 149 yards and a touchdown to lead the Blazers, but the defense could not get a stop. Florida Atlantic scored touchdowns on four of its first six possessions and three of its last four. Rusty Smith passed for 325 yards and three TDs and Charles Pierre rushed for 138 yards and two scores for the Owls.

Tennessee 35, UAB 3: Jonathan Crompton passed for 240 yards and two touchdowns, Lucas Taylor caught nine balls for 132 yards and the tandem of Arian Foster and Lennon Creer gained 193 yards on 20 carries as the Volunteers dominated both sides of the line of scrimmage in Knoxville. Joe Webb tossed three interceptions for the Blazers, who were outgained 548-275.

UAB 45, Alabama State 10: The Blazers celebrated their first win since Oct. 13, 2006 as Joe Webb passed for 238 yards, rushed for 121 yards and accounted for three scores against the Hornets. Rashaud Slaughter had two touchdown runs, Jeffery Anderson had two touchdown catches and the defense held Alabama State to 276 total yards, including just 17 rushing yards.

South Carolina 26, UAB 13: The Blazers didn't make a first down until 6:39 remained in the second quarter and finished with 207 yards of total offense in the loss at Columbia. Joe Webb passed for 140 yards and two interceptions and was UAB's leading rusher with 22 yards and a touchdown. Brandon Carlisle had two interceptions and Bryant Turner had three sacks to lead the defense.
