BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) Timothy Alexander has seen UAB football rise from the ashes, with new facilities and support growing for an oft-overlooked program.
Having helped rally the student body and community behind the program's rebirth, Alexander figured his fellow UAB supporters would like what they saw when their new team took the field for Saturday's spring game at Legion Field. And next season, too.
"They're bigger, they're faster," Alexander said. "This is not like the UAB team that you've seen in the past."
