WKU defense preparing for an aerial attack

09/10/2015 06:30 AM

Last Thursday Western Kentucky beat an SEC opponent in their stadium when the Hilltoppers got the upset win at Vanderbilt 14-12. You wouldn’t think coming back home to play a Conference USA opponent would be potentially tougher, but it’s sure shaping up that way.

WKU will host a Louisiana Tech team that thrashed the ‘Toppers last season 59-10. Last week the Bulldogs pounded Southern 62-15, with a new quarterback at the helm. Former Florida Gator Jeff Drsikel threw for 274 yards and four touchdowns in the win.

The Hilltoppers have already forgotten about the Vandy win because they know the scoreboard could be lighting up Thursday night.

We also spoke with WKU beat reporter Chad Bishop to get his thoughts on Thursday 8pm ET game.
