Owls open as +15.5 dogs to the Hilltoppers…

Not a betting man, but if I was, would be all over that!

Of note, the last time the Owls won a conference road game was (ironically) against the Hilltoppers in 2010's 17-16 victory.

All the more fuel to the fire.

I think this game can go either way. I don't think we're as bad as our record indicates and WKU may be looking past this game because of that. This could be a huge win to give us some momentum heading into our bowl game (Shula Bowl).

I'm looking forward to a W here. I know they're a good team but I think we can do it.

Hilltopper's notes for WE 11-03-12…

Junior running back Antonio Andrews rushed for 136 yards — his seventh straight 100-yard game, which is one shy of tying the school record. In the process, he also went over 1,000 rushing yards for the season - marking the 16th time a Hilltopper has accomplished the feat…His 392 all-purpose yards were also the most by a Hilltoppers since Joey Stockton set a Division I-AA record with 467 yards against Southern Illinois on Sept. 16, 1995. Andrews’ 182 kickoff return yards ties for the second most in a game in WKU history.

Kawaun Jakes threw three touchdown passes in the game, giving him 18 for the season. That ties the school record set by Jeff Cesarone during the 1985 campaign. Jakes also now has 47 career touchdown passes — the second most in Hilltopper history, and three behind the school record of 50 set by Justin Haddix from 2003-06. Jakes also moved into third place on WKU’s career list for total offense.

Tight end Jack Doyle caught three passes for 32 yards, moving him into a tie with Curtis Hamilton for second place on WKU’s career receptions list with 149.

Three Hilltoppers posted double-digit tackles against MTSU — Kiante Young and Jonathan Dowling each set new career highs with 14 and 10 tackles, respectively, while Andrew Jackson tied a career-high with 13 tackles. It was the fourth double-digit tackle game for Jackson in the last five contests.

With 11.5 sacks this season, senior defensive end Quanterus Smith has already equaled his total from the previous three seasons combined. It has also put him within reach of a Sun Belt Conference record. With 23 career quarterback take-downs, he is just one shy of tying the league mark of 24 set by Middle Tennessee’s Erik Walden from 2004-07. The single-season league record for sacks is 13, set by Troy’s Jonathan Massaquoi in 2010 and equalled by Arkansas State’s Brandon Joiner in 2011.
