BHM (2-0) vs ATL (0-2)

Trent.
@aafiron

The Iron heads east for their first road game. Atlanta plays their first home game.

ATL

Former Vols QB Matt Simms is the starter backed up by former UGA signal caller Aaron Murray.

Former Notre Dame RB Tarean Folston is their main rusher. Remember Michigan QB Denard Robinson who famously never tied his shoes? He is a reserve RB.

UGA safety Damian Swann patrols the secondary.

SO FAR

Atlanta lost their Week 1 game to Steve Spurrier’s Orlando machine 40-6. Last week, it was a 24-12 defeat at the hands of San Diego. Both games were on the road.

QUICK TAKE

The Iron are 2-0 in the friendly confines of Legion Field (aka the “Iron Ore”). How will they perform in their first road trip?

THE GAME

The game is played in the former Olympics Stadium turned Turner Field turned Georgia State Stadium. The weather should be Partly Cloudy and a high of 62°. No rain is expected.

VEGAS

Birmingham Iron (-6.5) at Atlanta Legends, O/U 40 (take the under!)
