UAB Changes Defensive Coordinator

UAB changes defensive coordinator earlier this month.  Let's take a look at UAB's defensive rank for this season up to last weekend using the Complex Invasion College Football Production Model.  I am starting with the second week of the season, as this gives enough data for the regression results to be fairly representative of the season.  The first week was good as well, but just to be on the safe side, I will start with the second week.  Here is UAB's regular season schedule for 2013, with the results to date including their week-by-week defensive ranking, including their defensive rank overall during their two bye weeks this season.


Opponent Date Venue Def Rank PF PA Result
Troy 8/31/2013 Away
31 34 LOST
LSU 9/7/2013 Away 95 17 56 LOST


Northwestern St. 9/21/2013 Home 70 52 28 WON
Vanderbilt 9/28/2013 Away 83 24 52 LOST
Fla. Atlantic 10/5/2013 Home 103 23 37 LOST
FIU 10/12/2013 Away 100 27 24 WON


UTSA 10/26/2013 Away 93 31 52 LOST
Middle Tenn. 11/2/2013 Home

Marshall 11/9/2013 Away

East Carolina 11/16/2013 Away

Rice 11/21/2013 Home

Southern Miss. 11/30/2013 Home

UAB's defense has been in the lower half of the "league" for the entire season, with their best showing in the "league" with their defeat of FCS Northwestern State.  While since the firing of defensive coordinator Reggie Johnson, after the Florida Atlantic loss on Oct. 5th, has resulted in an improvement in defensive ranking, (from 103 out of 125 to 93 out of 125) this is still a rather low production defense.
