We have reached week 12 of the college football season, and most teams will be playing a conference showdown this week.
In this one it’s a Conference USA showdown between two teams who are looking to become bowl eligible on Friday night.
The Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders will make the trip to Bowling Green Kentucky to take on the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.
The Hilltoppers have won the last two games played between the two teams.
Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders
The Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders were hoping to have better than a 5-5 record at this point of the season, but they seem to be healthy now and are playing much better football coming into this game.
Brent Stockstill has played the last two games after breaking his collarbone in the first game of the season. In the last two games he hasn’t played great defenses, but it has allowed him to get comfortable in the pocket and get settled back in.
Over the last two games he has thrown for 445 yards, six touchdowns, and only one interception. If he would have been healthy the full year they probably would have won at least two of three more games, but he wasn’t so they can clinch bowl eligibility in this game.
On the defensive side of the ball the Blue Raiders have been good most of the season. Coming into this game they are only giving up 24 points per game.
To win this game the defense is going to need to be good, and Stockstill needs to not turn the ball over and continue his touchdown throwing ways.
Western Kentucky Hilltoppers
On the other side of this match up is the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers who got off to a nice start this season, but come into this game really struggling having lost three games in a row.
Now they have been playing better teams, and have kept it pretty close for the most part, but in those three losses they have only covered the spread once.
The Hilltoppers and their fans are used to a fast paced high tempo game, but they made a coaching change this off season and the new coaching staff has slowed down the pace of play.
To win this game the defense is going to need to find a way to slow down the offense of the Blue Raiders. They can’t get Brett Stockstill get comfortable early, or it could be a long night of football for them.
If the defense plays well in this game though, they should be able to keep in it and maybe even pull off the big upset and get bowl eligible.
