Why WKU Will Win
Tyrrell Pigrome has been good.
The former Maryland quarterback stepped into the WKU offense and leads the team in rushing, hasn’t thrown a pick yet, and has been the playmaker for an offense that’s still not as productive as it needs to be, but isn’t bad.
The Hilltoppers have to hope for Middle Tennessee to continue its issues.
The Blue Raider offense finally started to move against UTSA, but the turnovers and mistakes continue to come with nine giveaways in three games with eight penalties last week. But …
Why Middle Tennessee Will Win
The Middle Tennessee offense started to work.
It was obviously off in the opener against Army, and it misfired way too much in the blowout loss to Troy. It might have been another loss, but with 563 yards, a big passing day from Asher O’Hara, and enough production to think that this all might turn around fast.
WKU doesn’t really score. The team has only managed more than 28 points three times in the last 16 games and more than 24 just four times in the last 15.

What’s Going To Happen
WKU has marred more than 30 points just three times in the last 19 games, and one of those was against Middle Tennessee in last year’s 31-26 win.
The Blue Raiders are on the verge of finally getting a win, but WKU is a whole lot better than it showed last week against Liberty, at least defensively.
Middle Tennessee won’t run like Liberty did.
