TV: ESPN3.com

The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers visit Ladd-Peebles Stadium to face the South Alabama Jaguars for the first time.

Sometimes the scoreboard can be deceiving and the Hilltoppers appeared to be completely outclassed in a 52-20 loss to Tennessee. However, Western Kentucky gave the ball away seven times and had a pair of interceptions end up in their own end zone, while being stopped on the Volunteers one. All this and they still outgained the Vols 425-385, so this was hardly a team that was dominated. Antonio Andrews ran for 113 yards to lead the ground game to 203 yards a six yard average, but disaster struck when Brandon Doughty went to the air. Doughty was17-34 for 222 yards with a score, but five interceptions and a pair of pick six's. That won't be good enough to beat any team, especially on the road.

After dropping their opener to Southern Utah, I had no clue what South Alabama brough to the table. I still am baffled a bit after a 41-39 shoot out win at Tulane, but their offense certainly looked good, with 455 yards that were tarnished by a trio of giveaways. Ross Metheny and Jay Jones combined for 139 yards on 22 totes to give the Jaguars a presense on the ground, while Metheny enjoyed a big day through the air. Metheny went 19-30 for 290 yards and a pair of scoring strikes, while also throwing two picks. The defense were thrown on for 327 yards of Tulane's 372 yards, but came up big when they stopped a two-point conversion, with a little over one minute remained to secure the victory and avoid overtime.

I think Doughty better stop throwing the ball to the other team or this will be a long season. I would think the Hilltoppers will exert themselves on the ground and turn things over to the 'D' and that has me looking at WKU for now.
