Well, it won't take long to see if the Toppers can do that.
The Toppers open the season on Thursday night in Nashville, Tenn., against SEC foe Vanderbilt in a game that will be televised on the SEC Network. It's also a game where the Toppers are favored.
Despite starting as double-digit underdogs, the line now favors WKU. It's not only a statement for the Toppers talent and ability as a program but with a win could be a major step forward.
"You want people to watch and see what you're all about," Brohm said. "On national TV and when it's on a weekday, even more people are watching. These are the games you like and want to play in. These are the games you can make a statement in.
"These are the games we have to rise to the occasion in."
WKU Insider has a couple of videos, a preview and a prediction video for your viewing pleasure this afternoon.
