DENTON, Texas (AP) TD Marshall returned an interception 76 yards for a third-quarter touchdown that lifted UAB to a 26-21 win on Saturday that cemented a second straight Conference USA West Division title for the Blazers.

UAB came into the game needing a win and have Florida Atlantic beat Southern Mississippi to claim the title. FAU won their game, 34-17. The Blazers now face the Owls December 7 in Boca Raton, Florida for the C-USA title.

On fourth-and-1, the Blazers' defense pressured Fine into a full retreat and a forced pass that was picked off by Marshall at the 24-yard line. Marshall threaded his way to the sideline and raced for a 76-yard touchdown that put UAB in front, 26-21 lead.

Spencer Brown carried 19 times for 111 yards and a touchdown for UAB (9-3, 6-2).
