All eyes will be on Deangelo Malone of the WKU Hilltoppers this weekend. He is behind the great defensive game of the Hilltoppers, a reason why WKU owns a 4-0 conference record. He is also part of the reason why the Hilltoppers are ranked no. 17 in FBS defensive ranking. This could be a point of concern for the Thundering Herd even if oddsmakers favor them to win. Quarterback Ty Storey needs to continue leading the team on offense. An upset may come to fruition if Storey is able to get the offensive flow going for the Hilltoppers.
