UNT had a chance to lock up the C-USA West, but UAB snatched it away

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- North Texas quarterback Mason Fine put it simply this week as the Mean Green prepared to take on UAB.

This was a game UNT really needed if it wanted to repeat as Conference USA West Division champions.

UAB may have put a stranglehold on the division instead with a 29-21 win at Legion Field.

The Blazers came storming back from a 21-10 first-half deficit to beat the Mean Green and improve to 4-0 in C-USA play.

The Blazers already have beaten Louisiana Tech in addition to UNT (6-2, 2-2) to give them the head-to-head tiebreaker on both teams.
