With QB Kolton Browning out for the rest of the year, there is a real question as to whether or not the Warhawks are going to have the ability to really get anything going offensively. This isn’t a team that runs the football all that much, and it’s not a unit that really is effective when it tries. Backup QB Brayle Brown has only completed half of his passes, and he has one TD pass against three picks in his time replacing Browning. There are going to have to be some tricks up the sleeve of ULM if it is going to even have a chance of winning this game against a Western Kentucky team that very well could end up playing in a bowl game for the first time in its history this year.
The Hilltoppers were beaten by South Alabama three weeks ago, and that was a bit of a shock, but since that point, order has been restored with wins over Morgan State and Navy. If not for some careless turnovers, there would have been a shot to beat Tennessee at Rocky Top as well. This is a series that has historically been remarkably close, knowing that the four all-time games with both of these teams playing at the FBS level and have been decided by a grand total of 12 points. This one though, will be decided by more than that. QB Brandon Doughty won’t turn the ball over all that much in this one, and if he can hold onto it, the Hilltoppers will be just fine.
