2017 Western Kentucky Hilltoppers Football Schedule Realistic Best Case Scenario
The Hilltoppers come out roaring with an easy win over Eastern Kentucky before shocking Illinois in Champaign. And then comes the Conference USA statement with a win over Louisiana Tech. Beating Ball State, UTEP and Charlotte isn’t a problem, but with three road games in the next four games, WKU loses two of them against Old Dominion, Vanderbilt and Marshall. But it bounces back with wins over Middle Tennessee and FIU to get back to the C-USA title game.
2017 Western Kentucky Hilltoppers Football Schedule Realistic Worst Case Scenario
After losing at Illinois early and in a home shootout against Louisiana Tech, a 1-2 start looks ugly. The Hilltoppers rally back for nice base of wins, but a loss to Old Dominion on the road and later a road loss to Marshall ruins any hopes of going to the Conference USA title game. There’s still a bowl game on the horizon, but a loss at FIU to close out the regular season is annoying.
