SERVPRO First Responder Bowl: 5 Thoughts
Final Score: WKU 23, WMU 20
CFN Prediction: WKU 26, Western Michigan 20
Line: WKU -3.5, o/u: 54.5
With the game tied at 20, WMU had the game there for the taking in the final moments, couldn’t do it, WKU pushed the ball down the field, tried a Hail Mary pass to avoid overtime, it got batted away, WMU got nailed for having 12 men on the field, and …
Western Michigan got Munsoned.
WKU freshman PK Corey Munson missed a 29-yard field goal early on, but he nailed shots from 26 and 31, and with a chance to pull off the win, he tattooed a 52-yard kick for the win.
Considering last year’s SERVPRO First Responder Bowl quit on itself, this one made up for it.
