The UAB Blazers have updated their future football schedules, the school announced on Friday.
UAB will host the Alabama A&M Bulldogs at Legion Field in Birmingham on Sept. 13, 2014. The game will be the first ever meeting between the two schools, which are separated by just over 100 miles.
The UAB-Alabama A&M match-up was first announced last month by A&M director of athletics Bryan Hicks, but a date was not revealed.
Other non-conference games in 2014 for UAB include the season-opener vs. Troy on Aug. 30 and a trip to Mississippi State on Sept. 6.
UAB also announced that a 2016-17 home-and-home series with Navy and a 2016 home game against Ole Miss have been canceled. Since the Midshipmen are joining the Big East in 2015, they had to clear most games off of their schedule from 2016 forward.
No reason was specified for the cancellation of the Ole Miss game.
UAB’s 2013 football schedule was announced in January. The Blazers open the season on Aug. 31 at in-state rival Troy.
