UAB play in East Division of Conference USA and play home games at Legion Field, which is located off-campus in Birmingham, Alabama.
At the end of 2014 season UAB announce it would be shutting down the Football program due to the rapidly increasing cost to field a competitive football team. On June 1, 2015 the football program was reinstated and would begin play as early as the 2016 season. On July 21, 2015 a UAB press release was sent out stating that UAB football would return in 2017.
Good Luck to Joel with his new team.
