  The UAB football team opened fall camp Tuesday in Birmingham and is well on its way to defending another conference title. There was a bit of seasonal comfort with temperatures hovering around 80 degrees during the morning practice session and the team was in shorts and shells. Tyler Johnston returns to lead the UAB offense for a third straight season but the backup battle is one to watch as both Dylan Hopkins and Bryson Lucero have received starting experience in the last two seasons. Hopkins was working with the second team to open practice and Lucero was running the third unit. - Birmingham Post Herald

Samario Rudolph caught another long pass in traffic along the left side and he dove into the end zone for a 21-13 lead. UAB punted it to the Rice 24 with 49 seconds left in the game - with no timeouts for the Owls. Rice got it past midfield, but Grayson Cash intercepted a pass on fourth-and-18 to seal it. JoVoni Johnson passed for 161 yards and a touchdown for Rice (2-3). Jordan Myers made nine catches for 62 yards and a score. Myers' score with 38 seconds left before halftime gave Rice a 13-6 lead.

  The Blazers (1-1) have used two quarterbacks extensively through the first two games of the season and are now down to one after starting quarterback Tyler Johnston suffered an injury to his non-throwing shoulder while being ruled out for the foreseeable future. "Tyler Johnston III has suffered an injury to his non-throwing shoulder and is out indefinitely," Clark said in a prepared statement. "Tyler is one of the best competitors I have ever coached and I know he will take his rehab very seriously to give himself a chance to play again this season. Our entire UAB family stands behind Tyler and we wish him the best during his recovery."

Johnston, a Spanish Fort native that led the Toros to a 35-0 record and two AHSAA state titles, has been the starter for UAB since an injury to A.J. Erdely forced the former to assume the signal-caller duties late in the 2018 season. The redshirt junior missed four games last year with an MCL sprain on his left knee but has started 16 games in a career that includes 3,879 passing yards with 31 touchdowns and 25 interceptions and 618 rushing yards and five touchdowns. - Birmingham Post Herald
