The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers host the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs on Thursday Night College Football. The game is scheduled for an 8:00 p.m. start time.
A pair of potential giant killers this season, both Louisiana Tech and Western Kentucky will be on the road next week against power five conference teams.Western Kentucky isn’t looking for “revenge,” so much as they’re looking to play a good game against a good football team. Louisiana Tech, meanwhile, is coming off an offensive show out against Southern, where the Bulldogs dropped 52 points in the first half, Jeff Driskel threw for 247 yards on 12-of-15 passing and Kenneth Dixon rushed for 106 yards on only nine touches.
The Hilltoppers already went on the road against Vanderbilt last week, knocking off an SEC team while holding them to just 12 points. Leon Allen didn’t have a big day from out of the backfield, but the defense was able to do just enough to help the sputtering Hilltopper offense find a way to win. The Hilltoppers played well down the stretch, as well, but had to make a stop on the Commodores 2-point conversion that would have tied the game with right around 30 seconds left in the game.
Louisiana Tech looks solid with Florida graduate transfer Jeff Driskel, who threw four touchdowns and ran for another one against Southern in a 62-15 opening win.
Both of these teams piled up points a season ago, ranking in the Top 15 nationally. Western Kentucky’s defense kept them from being great, the Bulldog defense helped them reach nine victories. That defense should play a big role in this contest, but Western Kentucky’s offense certainly dynamic.
