ORLANDO, Fla. -- Swayze Waters kicked five field goals and Alabama-Birmingham recorded its first shutout in a Conference USA game in school history with a 15-0 victory over Central Florida on Saturday.

The Blazers (4-8, 3-5) limited UCF (4-8, 3-5) to 209 total yards offense in recording the first shutout in a conference game in 10 seasons in Conference USA.

Blazers quarterback Joe Webb did everything but get his team into the end zone, controlling the action throughout the game with option runs and accurate passes. Webb was 20 of 28 for 244 yards and rushed 22 times for 80 yards as UAB had more than twice the possession time -- 41:36 to 18:24 -- than UCF.

UCF's Rob Calabrese was 2 of 8 for 6 yards and was yanked at the end of the first half and middle of the fourth quarter.

Joe Weatherford replaced Calabrese and had early success, but he floundered in the second half. Weatherford was 12 of 26 and was intercepted twice, including one by Kevin Sanders that stopped a drive at the UAB 12-yard line with 2:08 left in the game.

UAB cruised to a 9-0 halftime lead, holding the ball for more than 21 minutes on their way to converting seven of 11 third-down situations and outgaining the Knights 199-84.

The second half was more of the same with the Blazers grinding out long drives that stalled deep in UCF territory. Waters booted field goals of 36 and 28 yards, the last one coming with 7:05 left in the game.
