The Hilltoppers don't care that Vandy is in the SEC

09/01/2015 07:30 AM

Western Kentucky University is a short three days away from their season opener at Vanderbilt. The Hilltoppers are fully aware that the Commodores belong to the powerhouse SEC, but their opponent’s conference does not change the way WKU is preparing. The Toppers take confidence in their coach, their improved defense, and a high powered offense led by Quarterback Brandon Doughty.

WKU is technically an underdog and are definitely not taking their opponent lightly. They are fully aware that Vandy is out for redemption after a disappointing season last year, and the Toppers know they will have to execute on the field to bring home the W.
