WKU Football | Why this might be the best Hilltopper team ever

12/24/2015 11:30 AM

Now that we’ve all had a couple days to digest what WKU has done, we have to ask, is this the best Western Kentucky Football team ever?

The ‘Toppers went 12-2, including a win last Monday 45-35 against South Florida in the Miami Beach Bowl. In that game WKU had to rally to get the win. It’s not the first time Western has fought from behind. Look for 25th ranked WKU to move up in the polls when the new rankings are released.

Quarterback Brandon Doughty threw for 461 yards in the Bowl win. He finishes the season with better than 5-thousand yards passing and almost 50 touchdowns. In the last two seasons, Doughty has thrown for almost 10-thousand yards and almost 100 touchdowns. Yikes!!! Where he will get drafted in the NFL is still up for debate, but folks around here feel Doughty could very well leave his mark on the next level.

These topics and more are part of what we discuss with WKU reporter Chad Bishop.
