If you’re looking to join UAB’s beloved mascot, Blaze, in cheering on the Blazers this season, pack some forest green and gold, and check out some of the school’s sports teams across campus.

Although they’ve taken a short break from action in recent years, the UAB Blazers football team is back, and just about set to play home games at Legion Field Stadium once again.

The pride of central Alabama, the Blazers play up to six home games each year, frequently packing the over 70,000 seats at Legion Field Stadium. Catch the Blazers this fall, as they look to build on their Bowl Game record and defeat in state rivals, the Troy Trojans.

When football season is over, UAB Blazers b-ball is just getting going. One of the region’s best teams, the Blazers men’s basketball team also has the distinction of being the school’s very first sports teams. The Blazers’ men and women’s basketball teams run the hardwood at Bartow Arena each and every winter; catch a game this season and help the Blazers make a return to the NCAA March Madness Tournament.

During the spring and summer, sports fans across the nation turn their attention the America’s pastime, and it’s no different in Birmingham. The UAB Blazers men and women’s baseball and softball teams also are Conference USA members, playing home games at Jerry D. Young Memorial Field.
