A 2-yard touchdown run by Davis with 7:20 left in regulation put Rice up 31-21 but UAB responded with a 20-yard touchdown pass from Jonathan Perry to Darius Powell with 3:37 remaining.
Chris Rabb then recovered a Taylor McHarque fumble to give UAB the ball on the Rice 33, setting up a game-tying 24-yard field goal by Long with 37 seconds left.
