WKU FOOTBALL | WKU third favorite to win Conference USA

07/15/2016 05:05 PM

The Western Kentucky Football team breezed through conference opponents in 2015 on their way to the C-USA Championship and an bowl win over South Florida. Their only two losses were to to-be national champions Alabama, and a three point defeat to Indiana in Bloomington.

The Hilltoppers are now the third favorite to win the conference in the upcoming season behind Southern Mississippi and Marshall. WKU beat both of those teams last year by a combined total of 38 points. We spoke to WBKO.com’s Chad Bishop about those two teams and Western’s place in the C-USA landscape.
