WKU Hilltoppers

WKU Hilltoppers are back in the bowl game after missing out last season. They are riding on the momentum of a three-game winning streak attributed to their good defense. Ty Storey is back as the team’s starting quarterback and has had a solid season. So far, he has amassed 2,209 passing yards. However, work needs to be done on the offensive end. The WKU running game has not been as great as their passing offense even with Gaej Walker’s late-season performance. The defense has been doing it for Western Kentucky, limiting the opposition to just 20.1 points per game.

Players to watch:

T. Storey QB (206 CMP 294 ATT 2209 YDS 70.1 CMP% 7.5 AVG 69 LNG 12 TD 5 INT 16 SACK -106 SYL 143.3 RTG 105 ATT 246 YDS 2.3 AVG 27 LNG 7 TD), G. Walker RB (226 ATT 1115 YDS 4.9 AVG 68 LNG 8 TD), J. Sloan WR (8 ATT 80 YDS 10 AVG 21 LNG 2 TD).

Western Michigan Broncos

The Broncos may have lost their last assignment but are nevertheless back in the bowl game for the third straight season. Their offense is something to behold, anchored on Jon Wassink. He has accumulated 2,904 passing yards thus far and has not had an interception in four games. However, Western Michigan needs to improve on the defensive end. They are allowing opponents an average of 26.2 points per game, something that the Hilltoppers may exploit on Monday.

Players to watch:

J. Wassink QB (222 CMP 371 ATT 2904 YDS 59.8 CMP% 7.8 AVG 61 LNG 19 TD 7 INT 17 SACK -120 SYL 138.7 RTG), L. Bellamy RB (248 ATT 1412 YDS 5.7 AVG 75 LNG 23 TD), S. Tyler RB (66 ATT 386 YDS 5.8 AVG 61 LNG 5 TD).
