One play. That’s all it took for UAB to jump all over Northern Illinois’ vaunted defense and score the first touchdown of the Boca Raton Bowl Tuesday night.
Receiver Xavier Ubosi caught a 70-yard touchdown pass from Tyler Johnston III on the very first offensive play of the game.
That's one way to start the @BocaBowl!!

After a defensive stand, the Blazers went up by the score of 10-0 after kicking a field goal to cap off a slightly longer, more traditional offensive drive on their next possession.
