UAB football to open 2015 vs Tennessee in Nashville

Posted: Updated:

UAB football will open the 2015 season at the Tennessee Titans home field.

The Blazers game with the Tennessee Vols has been moved to LP Field in Nashville. The game is set for Saturday, Sept. 5, 2015.

"We are thrilled to be playing this game at such an exceptional NFL venue as LP Field," UAB athletics director Brian Mackin  said in a press release. "This will be a great experience for Blazer fans, who will be able to make the short trip to Nashville to watch our team play. In addition, I know our players will be excited and see it as a great opportunity to play a quality opponent in an elite NFL stadium."

LP Field is capable to seating 69,143, which is noticeably less than the Vols Neyland Stadium (102,455). That could work in the Blazers favor because the crowd is expected to be heavily in favor of UT.
