  • The Mean Green loss extends UAB’s all-time series advantage to 5-1, with the Mean Green’s lone win in the series coming at Apogee Stadium on Sept. 23, 2017. The teams’ game last season was canceled due to COVID-19 issues.
  • The loss puts head coach Seth Littrell at 32-33 in his Mean Green tenure, and he is in sixth place on the program’s all-time wins list – behind fifth-place Hayden Fry (40). He falls to 1-3 in his career against UAB.
  • The Mean Green loss puts the program record at 22-11 in Apogee Stadium under head coach Seth Littrell. The Mean Green are 1-1 at home this season.
