UAB officials have launched investigation into reports linking defensive end Chris Rabb to a point-shaving scandal involving friend and former high school teammate Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston.

“We’re are aware of the allegation and looking into the matter,” UAB Brian Mackin said in a statement sent out by the university this afternoon, confirming a TMZ report. “That is the only comment we will have at this time.”

The report surfaced earlier in the week, which claims Rabb placed a $5,000 bet that Florida State would trail at the half against Louisville last week.

The Seminoles fell behind 21-7 at the break before rallying to win 42-31 on the road.

Rabb, a 6-foot-1, 220-pound junior, has recorded nine tackles in nine games this season, including one in each of the Blazers’ last four contests.

Despite the reports, He is expected to suit up and play Saturday when the Blazers (5-4, 3-2 ) host Louisiana Tech (6-3, 5-0) in a key Conference USA matchup.
