What’s Going To Happen
Both teams are going bowling, but considering Conference USA will probably have more bowl eligible teams than tie-ins, getting a seventh win would be a big help.
The Golden Panthers blew their shot at getting into the C-USA title game with a blowout loss to FAU last week, but it’s still been a terrifically successful season under Butch Davis.
They still have to face UMass, but first, taking down WKU at home would be nice after losing two in a row.
The Hilltoppers became bowl eligible last week with a shootout win over Middle Tennessee, but they’ve been shaky. This isn’t nearly the same team that rocked and rolled through last year, but win this week, and with a bowl win this can still be an eight-victory season.
The WKU line play has been awful. There’s no pass rush, there’s not enough happening against teams that can get behind the line, but the passing attack is the best in the conference.
The Golden Panther pass defense isn’t good enough, there are too many issues trying to take the ball away, and there isn’t the pass rush in place to blow through the WKU lines.
The Hilltoppers will throw well enough to get the win. They’ll get up, and FIU won’t be able to rally back.
