The UAB Blazers have added the Alabama A&M Bulldogs to their 2020 football schedule, according to a release by A&M on Tuesday.

UAB will host Alabama A&M at Legion Field in Birmingham, Ala., on September 12, 2020. The game will mark the third overall meeting between the two schools on the gridiron.
