  • The 13-play, 90-yard drive for WKU’s second score of the game was the longest drive of the season for the Hilltoppers.
  • The two-play, 75-yard drive for WKU’s third score of the contest was the second two-play scoring drive for WKU this season. The Hilltoppers also had a three-play, 75-yard TD drive to close out the first half.
  • Quarterback Brandon Doughty has recorded a completion of 30 or more yards in 14 straight games.
  • Doughty has now thrown for at least 400 yards in four of his last five games and had at least 350 passing yards at halftime for the third time in his career, which is more than any other FBS quarterback in the last 10 seasons.
  • Kicker Garrett Schwettman has split the uprights on 58 consecutive PATs, the third-longest streak in WKU history. He is the only kicker to post two streaks of 50+ as he held a run of 59 straight from 10/11/12-11/2/13. He needs just three points to become WKU’s all-time scoring leader.
