FIU Stadium and the Florida International Golden Panthers look to slowdown the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.

The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers come out of their bye week looking to improve to 9-2. The Hilltoppers have won back to back contests following a 36-19 win against visiting Florida Atlantic as a 25 point favorite. WKY had zero problem moving the ball with a 509-359 yardage edge with the ability to both run an throw. Quarterback Brandon Doughty gave Western Kentucky another big game through the air with 273 yards and four touchdowns and an interception on 24-29. Taywan Taylor led the Hilltoppers with five catches for 87 yards and two scores while Anthony Wales ran for a game high 135 yards with D’Andre Ferby adding 92 yards.

The Florida International Golden Panthers need a win to become Bowl eligible or their season is over. Neither side of the ball has been consistent and that was never truer then in week eleven’s 52-0 loss at Marshall where nothing went favorably. The Thundering Herd led 38-0 at the break on the way to 463 yards while FIU was held to 209 yards and 13 first downs. Quarterback Alex McGough struggled with accuracy with 98 yards and an interception  on 11-25 with Julian Williams and Akil Dan-Fodio catching 45 yards in receptions while Anthony Jones was the only viable runner with 73 yards on 16 touches. 

The over is 5-0 in Hilltoppers last 5 games following a ATS loss and the Hilltoppers are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall while going 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game. The Golden Panthers are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss and  are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 home games.Golden Panthers are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games after accumulating less than 275 total yards in their previous game. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. This is based on potential because I hate the chalk…

Pick:
Western Kentucky -14

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
