WKU Coach Willie Taggart Talks FIU

11/01/2011 12:54 PM

WKU coach Willie Taggart averted disaster at Louisiana-Monroe last weekend and escaped with a 31-28 win in overtime. But there’s little time to celebrate. The Hilltoppers host FIU on Saturday, and Taggart says his team still has a long way to go if they want to compete in a bowl game this season.

The Hilltoppers haven’t beaten the Golden Panthers since 2004 and haven’t beaten them in Bowling Green since 2002. Which Taggart says, makes this a very important game for his team.

Taggart admits he’s a bit worried going into this weekend’s game because the Golden Panthers will be a very formidable foe.

After FIU, WKU will step out of conference to play at LSU, then travel to North Texas, and finally host Troy for the season finale on November 26th.
