In NCAA Football First Responder Bowl, we will see Western Kentucky at Western Michigan.
Western Michigan is 7-5 this season with one of the better offenses in the NCAA. The team is averaging 34.6 points per game while allowing 26.2 on defense. The Broncos are coming off a 17-14 loss to Northern Illinois in a game where Jon Wassink finished with no touchdowns and just 185 passing yards and a bit over 50% passing completion. RB LeVante Bellamy kept them in the game as he added 128 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns on 21 carries.
The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers are 8-4 and on a 3-game winning streak. The Hilltoppers have the better defense out of the two teams that are going to meet on Monday but the offense is not as nearly as good as Western Michigan’s. QB Ty Storey is completing 70% of his throws for 2209 yards, 12 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions while RB Gaej Walker is adding 1115 yards on the ground and 8 touchdowns as well.
Western Michigan is the more experienced with an explosive running game. I believe that they will be able to control the clock and tire the Western Kentucky defense down.
