The city of Birmingham is planning to celebrate the UAB football team's season. The office of Mayor Randall Woodfin announced that January 18 is UAB Blazers Football Day in Birmingham. The festivities include a parade along University Blvd. that will begin at 4 p.m. “This is Birmingham’s team. What these young men accomplished under the leadership of Coach Clark is simply amazing,” Woodfin said. During the 2018 season, the Blazers racked up a program-record 11 wins, including their first Conference USA Championship, and a victory in the Boca Raton Bowl.
